Have you ever wondered who is the master-coder behind the scenes?
Who is moving all the pieces to make a comfortable and cohesive experience on the Convene Communities platform? Meet Todd Bray, Convene Communities very own lead developer.
Passion for technology
Out of Knoxville, TN, Todd Bray has been with Convene Communities for the past four years. He has always had a passion for technology, so he decided to go to school for his computer science degree. Matthew exclaims that Todd has done 99% of the code development on the current site. Todd stumbled upon this opportunity with the start-up as he was finishing with his degree in IT. As Todd finished his degree, he took an internship and was asked if he knew anything about databases. He said yes, and was assigned to Convene Communities. The first community that he built with the platform was the soccer community. It took Todd a few months to grasp the vision of Convene Communities. But once he got it, he got it.
Some of the key features Convene Communities are:
- Private groups
- Premiere groups
- Message board
- Discussion board
- Private messaging
- Project management
Convene Communities was built on the adult learning theory and experiential learning model. That is why when you create something, it’s called an ‘experience.’ One of Convene Communities’ core messages is Real People, Real Life, and Real Experiences, furthering the message and ideal of what the platform is all about. And through our experience, we connect, communicate, and educate.
