Drupal 7

Framework used for Internet and Intranet Web Development

on Long Island

On Long Island is a news feed site built in Drupal 7. It's primary sources include rss feeds from news sources in the region. Some of the challenges were to find sources that distributed an rss and provided at least a reasonable teaser for the user to follow. In some cases, the distributed rss required the user to pay for subscription services, eliminating the interest in the news item immediately.


Wrote shell script utilizing drush and alias files (also written) along with a cron job set for five minute intervals to synchronize the MTA's east coast server with their west coast (fallback) server so that if the server was affected by any weather, or other event, (specifically Hurricane Sandy) the site would continue to be available should the east coast server goes down, but the site would be current and transparent to the user.


The NYSE’s project was to recreate their multiple web properties migrating from various legacy systems and add some portals with the Open Source CMS Drupal. The large team (100+) involved other companies, consultants and internal NYSE personnel. Our sub-team was responsible for up to 8 (out of 20+) sites. One intranet provided services/data to most if not all the other sites, making it a cornerstone of the total project.

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics needed a portal built with the Open Source CMS Drupal. The private intranet provides for social network style communication between Celtics representatives and their sponsors and partners including being able to share events and documents.
