John Weland's Experience

ASP.NET MVC Developer (Mobile Web)

February 2013Present (1 year 8 months) San Antonio

Responsible for building and managing a responsive (mobile friendly) full featured Content Management System (CMS) using C# and the ASP.NET MVC design pattern. CMS features include adding/removing user accounts with varying roles ranging from full administrator to content managers, content editors, security moderators, and students. The ability to post content under categories or infinitely related sub-categories, edit that content, publish (display it on the frontend) or unpublish existing content (still exist but is not visible on the frontend) that content or completely delete said content. Makes use of nHybernate to hydrate data between MVC and the database.

Backend features include the ability to change ‘theme’, logos, and org-type, increase data-hashing workload to improve security over time without adding additional strain to the client or host machines. CMS backend built to hook in to DOD smart card authentication (CAC) processes within Active Directory (AD) to insure proper authentication and authorization of users. All form fields are protected against Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks and Cross Site Forgery (CRFS) attacks using ‘authtokens’ per form-field in the CMS.

Frontend features begin with a responsive ‘mobile first’ approach so that the display of the sites and their content can be viewed on smartphones, tablet, netbooks, laptop, desktops and even uHD systems. Content intelligently adapts to the users device for the best user interface and user experience. Frontend user security include to ‘dummy hashing.

Continue to extend skillset to improve upon HTML 5, CSS3, JavaScript, C# methods and technologies, to make best use of DOD servers and services whenever possible as to limit the resource draw on client side.
