Release Notes

Welcome.

I’m David Peterson, Sitecore Architect at ATP World Tour. You’ve somehow stumbled upon my blog on all things Sitecore. You may see some other non-Sitecore related topics from time to time.

If you’re on social media (who isn’t these days?) you’ll find me most active here:

Background

I’ve held numerous positions building both web and Windows-based applications for organizations such as Grand Circle Travel, The Boston Public Schools, Investors Bank and Trust and Towers Perrin. I enjoy collaborating with talented teams of developers, sharing ideas and helping others learn.

As a remote worker, I’m constantly looking for ways to improve and become more connected to both clients and my team (East and West coast). Have suggestions? Pass them along.

Back in the Day

Growing up, I was big into video games like every other kid in the late 80’s and early 90’s. At the start of High School I got a dedicated phone line, 2400 baud modem and started The Power Surge BBS. While running on PCBoard, we had integrated FidoNet and built numerous “online” games.

After having attended a couple programming classes at Northeastern University in my senior year of high school, I knew software development was where I wanted to be. I went on to study Computer Science at Drexel University and the rest is history…

Manifesto

What I’m about:

  • Knowledge sharing FTW!
  • White boarding is a must
  • Paired programming (in moderation of course)
  • Waterfall stinks
  • Agile all the way
  • Open source
  • Community code reviews
  • Shooting Nerf guns when I’m in Portland
