thouoghts on telecommunications, programming, education and technology

About Me

About me….  I’m Nick Kwiatkowski, and I work for Michigan State University as a Telecom Engineer in the Telecommunications Systems Department.  I am responsible for the Telephone and Cable TV networks on our campus (our department also handles the Fiber Optics, 2-Way Radios, Cellular and licensed Wireless on campus).   I deal a lot with Avaya telephone systems, and helped design our digital cable television system that we use at the University today.

I do quite a bit of Flex and ColdFusion programming in my day job.  We run lots of different systems, and I use ColdFusion as middleware to have them all talk with each other.   If a customer sees it, Flex is probably the front-end they are dealing with.  I’m not a fan of AJAX, and Flex has just been intriguing me to no end.

I am also very connected to the community. I run the IgniteLansing event, help with the DemoCamp Lansing event and the Mid-Michigan ColdFusion User’s Group.  I also am the manager of the Michigan Flex User’s Group, and seem to do most of the presentations.  I’ve also written articles for various magazines (FAQU, Avaya Users, etc), and do quite a bit of forum answering, etc.  I’ve also written a few articles for the Adobe Developer Center.  I was nominiated to become apart of the Adobe Community Professional Program in 2010 and 2011.
Spare time?   Hardly have any anymore since settling down, being apart of the community and joining my wife in marriage.  But, I enjoy mountain biking (with my sweet Specialized Stump-Jumper!), watching the Simpsons, and working on websites…  I used to be all into BBSes, running my own for almost 15 years, but after a while I felt like I was the only pillar still holding up the old-school mentality.

This blog will be about my experiences in the Telecom world, tips and tricks regarding Flex and ColdFusion, and some general rantings.   I’m not the best at grammer or spelling, so please excuse those :)
