PSC’s Collaboration team gets a shot in the arm with some geek ...

March 24 2011

As many of you know, PSC has been hiring quite a bit the last year. In the past 6 weeks, we have hired 8 new members to the PSC Chicago team. Our collaboration team has seen new team members as well. In the past year, we added Andrew Barickman as the practice manager (since Alex went off to do something new). We also hired Wil How who is rocking with XPages work. Our business is growing and the demand for high end Notes, Domino, XPages, and Integration work has had us looking for more help.

It was about this time that I realized I had a chance to help out a good friend. About 15 years ago, I met someone who had a major impact on my life. We did work together here and there. He brought me in to his company as a consultant to do the first Notes to Word mail merge implementation. Based on that, he was a major reason I went to go work at Synergistics. After working with him and Henry Newberry for a year, I came to PSC. And the rest, as they say, is history.

So let me be the first to welcome Rocky Oliver, the original Lotus Geek, to the PSC team! Rocky is going to be working in our collaboration practice and we already have work lined up for him that will have him doing some major XPages development, integration of Microsoft Office with XPages, and probably some C# and OOXML/ODF work as well.

So please, every welcome Rocky to PSC. We have encouraged Rocky to blog more and hope to see him active in the community. For me personally, Rocky - thanks for taking me under your wing back in the day. I look forward to watching you kick major ass at PSC as a co-worker once again!
