  • Pine Cove Camp's Rock Pile CRM

    What started in 2006 as a simple camp registration web app has evolved into an enterprise CRM and event management system. In the role of Senior Software Developer, I've had the privilege of taking this system, known as Rock Pile, through many iterations so that it now touches in some way almost every department at Pine Cove and every guest that comes on the property. In 2013 we extended Rock Pile to the platform for the purpose of strategic growth in traditional CRM business processes such as lead and opportunity management. Using Informatica Cloud, we maintain a real-time data flow between Salesforce and Rock Pile's back-end servers. Rock Pile was built with the following technologies: ColdFusion, ColdSpring, Fusebox, JavaScript, jQuery, Ajax, Adobe Flex, Mate, ASP.NET, and MySQL.
