Back in April, I had the opportunity to do some pro bono work for the Conference of Inclusive Communities (CFIC). CFIC is trying to make the world a better place by raising awareness and advocates around issues of difference (race, culture, faith, sexual orientation, class and other diversities), and focusing on reducing personal and institutional biases and prejudices.
They were going to have a Humanitarian Dinner in a couple of months and they needed an e-commerce solution for the event registrations. The dinner is one of their most critical fundraising events of the year and they needed someone to get the job done.
Volano Solutions was happy to assist them and the task fell to me. CFIC had an existing form in ASP that they had used previously for something similar. Although most of our projects at Volano are written for the .Net framework, ASP is like a second language to me. I was able to re-work the existing software for their dinner event.
The event was a success! They had over 500 people in attendance and raised $120,000!
Volano Solutions is honored to have had the opportunity to assist the CFIC and wishes them continued success.

Several years ago, I was working on a product that required some attention from the software product teams. This happens to all software over time because a user’s needs change, features need to be added, and bugs happen (naturally). The undertaking was large enough, so our team agreed it would be ideal to talk with […]

Wait. What’s the problem again? Several years ago I was working in Healthcare for a tech startup. At the time, healthcare systems could not bill patients until a chart was signed off and locked by a provider (MD, PA, or NP).
