What do you want to get out of this meetup group?

The Walker Art Center is a very design-driven organization so it's important for us to stay at the front of new technologies and UX issues. A local community to draw on will certainly help.

What is your primary role in designing websites and web applications? Examples: Front-end Designer, Graphics Designer, Coding, Copywriter, Strategy/Archtiecture, Management, Other

I am the lead developer for all public-facing technology projects. We have a very diverse technology stack from Django and Rails to legacy PHP and Java Struts. Lately our work has shifted heavily towards lightweight Javascript apps running client-side using our own APIs.

How long have you been doing what you do with websites/web applications?

It's evolved, but I've been working online since the mid 90s. I suppose that makes it almost 20 years.

What kind of company do you work for?

The Walker Art Center is a contemporary art center with a multidisciplinary focus. Our online site is very content-driven along with events, history, and education.

Do you have a favorite cartoon character?

Space Ghost.


Sr. New Media Developer & Head Technologist at the Walker Art Center. A technology leader at the Walker since 2003, Solas has helped shape the direction of the institution’s web presence and developed strategies for multidisciplinary content online.
