I am a Solutions Architect. I build websites and apps that lots of people can use. My job is to understand what problems a business needs to solve and figure out the best way to get it there. Every situation is unique, but I draw upon 20 years of experience to figure out the right plan of action. I decide what the components of the system will be and how everything will work together. Sometimes the components are built in house by developers (possibly myself included, I do get hands on) and sometimes we will integrate with Software As A Service (SAAS) vendors.
Hi! I’m David Berman.
Thanks for stopping by.
What You Will Find Here
On this blog I write about technology, business and photography. Businesses are powered by technology, but technology is paid for by business, so we’ll talk about both. The business of photography is a powerful one when the right tech is applied, and it’s loads of fun. You can sign up on this page to get email notifications when I publish new articles that you might find interesting.
I am a full stack engineer on the Microsoft .Net and MEAN stacks.
For some solutions I deploy Node.js using AWS Lambda. This enables me to easily deploy code that I could run anywhere, have it invoked by WebApi or events (like trigger code to run when a file is uploaded to a S3 bucket).
Most solutions also involve a Content Delivery Network (CDN) such as Amazon Cloud Front or Fastly. This provides powerful scalability in a very easy to implement way.
I love technology and am constantly striving to build my skills and become faster at bringing great features to customers. I love enabling people to do things and making their lives easier through technology.
When I’m not working with technology I am probably taking pictures. I am a semi-professional Fashion Photographer. I cover New York Fashion Week, shooting all the major runway designer shows and publishing the photos. I also play Water Polo during the summer, enjoy riding my bicycle and also walking around the city.
