NOTE: This a regular Atlanta Java User Group meeting and will be hosted at AJUG's normal meeting location.
Like many new web applications, Sharecare wrestled between the convenience of an off-the-shelf CMS-based site and the flexibility of a home-grown solution. But instead of the traditional compromises involved in either solution, Sharecare chose to combine Spring Framework and Magnolias CMS to leverage the best of both approaches. In this talk Casey Dement, Sharecare's VP of Architecture, will explain why this solution was chosen, how Sharecare made it work, and how the design of Magnolia CMS simplified this process.
Casey Dement has been passionately (obsessively?) designing and developing software solutions for 15 years. He is VP of Architecture and Sharecare, Inc which uses Magnolia extensively for several web products. Casey was previously lead architect for The Weather Channel / weather.com and Chief Architect for Dorey's FirstCLS. Casey lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife and two children.
