I am a full time employee of World Vision which is an international non-profit organization seeking a better life for children across the world. This site has a custom CMS with both flash and non-flash components. The CMS has a full blown, custom CMS with flexible user system, true hierarchical database design, and an object oriented design pattern developed to allow full and easy extension. The front end has a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) with theming and templating systems that, for this site, includes templates that utilize jQuery and CSS/HTML & flash components.
