Question

What is your current position at the Church and what are your responsibilities?

Answer

Officially, I am an individual contributor. In practice, I’m a team member in Infrastructure’s Middleware group. Middleware responsibilities include proxy and caching solutions, ftp services, n-tier application and Web servers (multiple technology platforms), and some other stuff (that’s the technical term).

Within Middleware, I am part of the Public Facing Sites (PFS) team.  As implied, PFS’ focus is public sites and content, which include LDS.org , Newsroom , Mormon.org , and others. The team is responsible for the application environments’ availability and administration.  To that end, PFS integrates closely with partner organizations such as Dev and QA to provide useful content and products that perform effectively and are highly available.

Salt Lake City, USA was the epicenter, but the scope of the LDSTech Conference was global, with many topics of interest to members world-wide.

If you have a technology-related calling, or want to become a better user of Church technology in your present calling, the videos are very informative.

Plan to watch and make notes of things that will help you and share what you learn with others who may benefit from your insights. Here are a few highlights:

Did you know there is a place to submit feedback on meetinghouse technology issues? Church leaders are sensitive to user experiences and they are working on solutions for the challenges presented by languages, travel, and cultural diversity. Check out “Meetinghouse Technology – What, Why, How?” with Bret Bassett. Bret will tell you where to find training and what the Church is doing to support members world-wide.
