Erik Pope became the newest member of the Data and Software Engineering Services group when he joined CIS in January as a Senior Software Engineer. Erik comes to HMC from Pomona College where he was a member of the AISO team that supports the use of CX and JICS at all five of the undergraduate Claremont Colleges. You may have seen him around campus on his electric skateboard, which he sometimes uses in his commute to work.
Erik’s focus right now is on making sure the JICS Portal is ready for web pre-registration at the end of April. He has ungraded the HMC Portal software and installed numerous updates to support Claremont’s local modifications for cross-registration. In addition, Erik is working closely with the Registrar Office on testing.
Beyond his work on the Portal, Erik has experience in documentation and work flow that are sure to be useful as we work with our customers to design new projects.
