What are your reasons for joining the group (learning, socializing, curiosity, etc)?

Learning, Socializing, networking, etc.

What topics would you like to see covered by the group?

This might have been covered before, but a good overview of SaaS products that make sense to use over building in house. Many managers see the monthly price tag of a service and think they can "build" it cheaper, but they don't take into account the ongoing costs involved. With so many good tools out there a "SaaS roundup" would be cool.

Are you an expert in any web development technologies? If so, which ones?

I would not say expert, but well versed in: ColdFusion (railo), MS SQL, Node.js, Couchbase, ElasticSearch.


I am a Co-Founder of and CTO at SmarterServices, LLC. Looking to network with other developers in the Grand Rapids area.
