Gavin Pickin

Software Developer
Ortus Solutions

Gavin is a proud ColdFusion developer, starting with ColdFusion in the late 90s. His first exposure to ColdFusion was while working for the University of Auckland under supervision of big ColdFusion Contractors. He got his feet wet early, with systems ranging from small, to extremely large and complex.

Moving the the United States in late 2000, Gavin has worked with several companies, creating many systems, that are still supporting thousands of websites, from small brochure, corporate, e-commerce, to large school districts websites.

During that time, he also built several custom applications to help businesses of all sizes find the solution they needed.

Gavin’s strengths lie with ColdFusion and he works in all areas of the application design work flow, from Customer Project Specifications, ColdFusion Integration and Database Design, all the way through to the User Interface design and implementation, Customer Training and Support.

Now working with Ortus Solutions, a leading force in CFML Development frameworks and tools, Gavin gets to work on a lot of great projects, for a big variety of clients. At Ortus Solutions, a big focus is on free and open source tools, on open source Fridays, Gavin spend most of his open source time working on ContentBox Content Management System.
