About

Adrian K is a geek from Wellington, New Zealand.  He has been involved in technology since 2000, starting out in software development, and is presently masquerading as a consultant / solution architect.  His current primary credentials as an architect are his beard and his ability to prefix answers with the words “it depends”.

He has dabbled in product development for a lot of that time, creating several Microsoft based open source projects (Morphfolia and Robomojo) and more recently CombiCard and ScrumSpark.

He currently co-runs the Wellington Solution Architects Forum, which you can find on LinkedIn and meetup.com.

You can view his professional profile on LinkedIn.

He’s not entirely sure why he’s writing about himself in the 3rd-person.

  1. Hi Adrian

    A very basic question here.. I saw this post you left but the diagram you referenced is gone off your site.. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2527482/cms-common-architecture. Do you have it hanging around somewhere. I am new to the Web CMS world and looking to get up to speed quickly. Particularly how a Web CMS gets in the mix on serving up pages or owning the web site. I realize they act as a repository for content, including code, but do they manage/front end the web app for the site as well.

    Thx

    • Hi Gil, let me track that down for you as I don’t have it to hand right at this moment.

      I realize they act as a repository for content, including code, but do they manage/front end the web app for the site as well.

      Usually yes, but it depends. A lot of CMS solutions (like WordPress) allow you (as an end user) to manage the look and feel of the front end – but often only in a limited way (to change the background, color schemes or choose themes); alternatively some CMS (or CMS frameworks like Drupal) will allow you (as a developer) to manage every aspect of a sites visual appearance.
