About the Author

Patrick Li is a highly experienced and established JIRA developer, among many other development skills. He is well-known in Atlassian Forums, with a top position in the leader boards on most Atlassian subjects.

Internal to AppFusions, he's highly respected not only for his technical expertise, but also his logical pragmatic guidance on just about any technical challenge we encounter.

We joke that if JIRA could ride a bike, Patrick can make it do so. We've yet to trip on any JIRA requirement that can break Patrick's back. Thus, of course he's a key member of the team, let alone co-founder to AppFusions.

Awesome job Patrick - we're mighty proud of you - again!

Shameless advertisement

While JIRA is certainly a strength, lately Patrick's been in full-speed development mode with another senior developer on our team: Colin Goudie. Their project: our imminent Confluence to Alfresco Integration product.

This CMIS-based connector brings the world of structured ECM/DMS documents (PDFs, Docs, XLS, etc.) and unstructured Wiki content under one hub, finally! This solution solves the problem of rogue attachments in the wiki with a logical DMS fileshare home, as well as enabling normally out-of sight DMS documents to be easily accessible and also embedded in wiki pages (among other features).

In essence – a single collaboration environment with both structured and unstructured data properly managed.

We think the power of this connector in the industry is enormous, and can't wait to share it with the world!

Early Adopter trial deployments are expected to start with 6 large corporations the week of April 4, 2011. Contact us if you'd like to join..., or please check back again.
