Hector Correa joined the Library in June as the Senior Library Applications Developer. Prior to Brown, Hector was at Penn State working on the ScholarSphere project, a Ruby on Rails application built on top of the Hydra framework, which uses Fedora for document storage and Blacklight/Solr to power the search feature.
From 2010-2014 he was a senior developer at AccuWeather where he led the teams that develop the AccuWeather.com web site and AccuWeather core API which provides weather data to external partners and internal applications.
Hector has a B.S in Computer Science from the Colima Institute of Technology in Mexico. He brings over fifteen years of software development experience to Brown.
Hector says, “I am really excited with this opportunity and the chance to work closely with the people at the library.”
