Projects near and dear to me

  • Umbraco

    Umbraco is the best CMS I've ever worked with. As such I've put in a lot of work extending Umbraco along with the occassional pull-request. Umbraco is open-source and has the best community bar none.

  • Archetype

    Archetype is the most difficult and successful project I've ever attempted. This project represents fantastic collaboration and creativity while continuing to remain popular over the last couple of years. It also serves as a great example on how extensible Umbraco is.

  • Learn Umbraco 7

    What started as a way to help my co-workers at the University of Notre Dame assimlate Umbraco faster, has now become a nice companion to the official Umbraco documentation.

  • Bookshelf

    When writing Learn Umbraco 7, I decided it would be nice to write and embed markdown books with Umbraco. As a result, Bookshelf was built to fill that need.

  • And many more!

    I have many open-source projects on GitHub you may be interested in! Umbraco 7 property editors, an encrypted settings app and my special laboratory project call Grease.
