The Mormon Channel iPhone application is the first software release from the LDSTech community. Not only does it stream the Mormon Channel on the iPhone, it also plays recordings of general conference talks, Church magazine articles, and scriptures. The application was given a four-star rating in iTunes and has been downloaded more than 55,000 times in more than 53 countries.

Question

What do you do at the Church?

Answer

I work on the .NET Stack Team with Bryan Hinton and Jim Byer.

Question

What does the .NET Stack Team do?

Answer

There are two main goals of the .NET Stack Team. The first is to provide general support to all teams at the Church working on projects with components that use the Microsoft .NET Framework. This support can range from answering technology questions to identifying and resolving specific problems that project teams encounter.

The second goal, which facilitates the first, is to maintain and continue to develop the .NET Stack Library and Services, which are a set of tools to help Church developers quickly accomplish common tasks so that teams can focus on the unique and project-specific design issues they face instead of re-writing the code blocks that occur across most ICS projects. The .NET Stack includes tools for ASP.NET web pages, WPF projects, WCF services, authentication through LDS Account, application logging, and much more. We have even developed Visual Studio New Project templates to enable developers to create Stack-enabled projects with just a few clicks.

Internet Mission Office System (iMOS) is a Web application designed to help mission office staff manage mission information and perform other tasks. iMOS shares data with other applications that contain missionary information, so less manual data entry is required. For example, shortly after missionary calls are recorded in Missionary Management System (MMS) at Church headquarters, the missionaries' information appears in iMOS for the missions to which they are assigned. All missions with an Internet connection will be able to use iMOS, which will replace the current Mission Office System (MOS) during 2008.

 
Plan to Come to the LDSTech Conference! PDF Print E-mail

It’s happening! Plans and preparation are coming to fruition for the 2015 LDSTech Conference on October 15. It’s not too late to make your own plans to attend. The 2015 schedule is set and the day-long conference will be held at the Institute of Religion Building on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, USA. It is free and everyone is invited regardless of technological skill level.

Last year’s conference had 500 attendees and survey evaluations from 2014 said repeatedly, “First time attendee…have enjoyed learning and look forward to more,” or “This is my first time, but not my last,” or “Thank you, plan to come again.” The presenters for 2015 are as diverse and the topics as relevant for this year’s attendees, and a formidable number of LDS Apps and Games are “in the works.”

If this is your first opportunity to participate, you’ll not want to pass up a chance to brush shoulders with technology experts, network with like-minded tech enthusiasts, and enjoy free breakfast and lunch while making new friends and learning new skills to take back home and share with friends and family.

Don’t wait another day to register. The 2015 LDSTech Conference will be something to remember!

Question

What do you do at the Church?

David

Answer

I am a security engineer for the Family History department, working on the new FamilySearch site. I spend most of my time making sure that our layered approach to security is functioning correctly, and looking for ways to improve our site security.

Question

What role do you think Web site security plays in the Church organization and to the public?

Answer

Working for the Church has been interesting. Instead of working on protecting trade secrets or financial information, I focus on protecting sacred ordinance information and user information while providing a way to make most data public. I have been involved in an initiative to collaborate and share data with external organizations. We have many affiliates, and even more in the approval process. Working with affiliates has introduced many exciting and interesting security challenges, but we try to adhere to as many industry security standards as possible.
