This project was designed from the ground up on solid engineering principals such as the Three Tier Architecture. It utilizes a number of techniques including dependency injection to allow for a plugin framework which not only allows the system functionality to expand but also for decoupling from any specific database system.

This allows for rapid expansion of functionality and implementation of new data sources. The entire system is based on SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) of RESTful web services which allows any application to consume and interact with information in the system. Utilizing a custom proprietary plugin framework, any developer is able to extend the functionality of the CMS including create new RESTful service end points.

The project is built using C# 6.0 and .Net Core to allow it to be deployed to multiple platforms.


An enterprise website developed on the EktronCMS platform and a WebForms front end, it is distributed no only by environment but geographically as well. It is hosted on the North American, South

America, European and Asian continents.


This system is designed to run concurrent advertising campaigns on the Youtube platform. ZoominTv currently uses it on all of their 60,000+ channels. In a matter of minutes a campaign can be created and

placed on each video of each channel that is selected for the advertising campaign. It has a simple Angular and Material front end which communicates with web services. There is also a back end windows service which, using machine learning, matches appropriate channels to the advertising campaign and monitors all clicks. The information is constantly updated ensuring maximum click through rate for each campaign.
