A detailed walkthrough of our experience building our new corporate website on Umbraco 7:
Dan has been building Umbraco sites at Illumi since the days of version 4.5, drawn to the platform by its extensive XSLT usage (yes, really) and the power of having an entire website available as an XML structure. He enjoys constructing meaningful editor experiences in Umbraco, was an early adopter of the responsive mindset and is an eager proponent of solid frontend performance.
He’s a defiant Mac user, and spends his days coding in Vim and grunting on the Unix command line. Taking full advantage of Kenn’s hard work to make it possible, he hopes to hold on to his editor freedom while opening his mind to the bright Razor-powered future of Umbraco 7.
Kenn has been in the industry for over 10 years, exclusively on the .NET platform and almost exclusively within the web universe. He's been working on three different continents on all kinds of projects, from designing and implementing application life cycle management at Vestas to building configuration software for fighter jets at the US Air Force.
For the past three years he's been with Illumi doing Umbraco projects and spending a fair amount of his time working with automation, continuous integration and deployment. He is also the author of the Umport and uCommerceSync packages, and more packages are in the works.
