A Change

Now that I am a full time Sr. Software Developer – Integration Developer at DocuSign as part of the Integration Factory, I have the ability to share more of what I do with you than ever before, which is exciting for me! For so many years I have worked on projects that are behind the scenes and I can never talk about
until the MNDA Mutual Non-Disclosure agreement is expired which is about the time the technology is not very relevant. I have been working with DocuSign as a Partner
and as an external contractor since 2009 when I first developed a major part of the DocuSign for Salesforce
that won the
2009
Dreamforce Appy Award
.

What I have been working on at DocuSign – Google Integration
