My name is Shannon Deminick, I am a full time developer for Umbraco, a fantastic open source CMS. I've been on the Umbraco core development team for about 5 years and am fortunate enough to be working on this great product full time. For the 5 years previous to starting at Umbraco HQ, I worked as the Technical Director for TheFARM Digital in Sydney, Australia. I'm also a proud Microsoft MVP in the IIS/ASP.Net category. Some open source projects I've started are:
- UmbracoIdentity - ASP.Net Identity implementation for members in Umbraco
- Articulate - Blogging platform
- Examine - Lucene search engine
- Smidge- Runtime web resource management for ASP.Net Core
- ClientDependency - Runtime web resource management for ASP.Net
- uComponents - Plugins for Umbraco
I have a passion for development, it's one of my favorite things to do... yes even in my spare time. I've been developing since I was a teenager when the interwebs were becoming cool (MIRC was the thing to do), and have been specializing in web development pretty much since I finished college in 2001. Apart from developing I love to surf, travel, relax and generally just like to hang out with good friends. I also love music in all forms, I play guitar and used to produce electronic tunes and DJ ... wish I still had the time!
