Primary Job Responsibility
I am formerly the Director of Web Marketing at Pittsburg State University. I am currently a writer for .eduGuru, CTO for nuCloud, and Senior Interactive Developer for Aquent.

At PSU I oversaw the general development and maintenance of our primary .edu site, along with several ancillary sites. I was in charge of all aspects of our CMS (a role I currently fill for Aquent now), as well as managing our social media, layout, SEO, accessibility compliance, and other assorted roles. The web shop was a one man show, which forced me to become a master of many trades.

My book, dotCMS From the Ground Up, is available now at http://learndotcms.com/.

I also cause a lot of trouble.

Hello Michael,
I am new to uwebd and our university is in the process of evaluating several CMSs, OmniUpdate, Cascade and dotCMS seem like the strongest contenders. What do you like most and least about dotCMS?

We are use to extending our current in house developed CMS. Does dotCMS have an API for accessing content. Does it plugin architecture or support for JSP enable you to easily extend its functionality?

Are you aware of pros or cons vs Cascade or OmniUpdate?

Thanks, for any potential guidance you can give,
Joe

Michael, I want to share your latest post - Compliant Against Penn State but is it supposed to be Complaint and not Compliant?

Michael, Ektron CMS400.NET has many good features. The only thing I don't like about it is that it only runs on a Windows machine. Previously, we used the LAMP environment for our Web site. So I am having difficulty getting applications built now. But the CMS package itself is working pretty well. We have found some problems in editing text, etc., and do most things in the code to get around them. However, for my users who do not know code, some things can be difficult. Version 8 is out and we are installing it in August, so I am hoping some of those issues have been resolved. Do you use a CMS?
