< Projects

I was a participant in a project to improve computer and network security awareness at several area campuses. This project was a Title V funded grant and had several goals with measurable outcomes. We conducted ongoing vulnerability assessments, trained staff, faculty, and students and worked towards hardening the campus computing infrastructure.

I work with the Blackboard Learning Management system at Cal Poly Pomona University. We have chosen to discontinue WebCT and provide Blackboard as our primary LMS.

< Technology

I have written many scripts in Perl and have done quite a bit of Intranet web development using Perl CGIs. I have developed the tools and methodology to rapidly deploy pages and associated CGIs. Some of these tools will be posted here when I get time.

< Perl

I am a very heavy Perl user, finding a myriad of ways to use it in my professional and private work. I also find it very useful as a tool to help manage and monitor Windows servers. Perl for Windows is available free from ActiveState.
