A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Sundar Swaminathan, a Solutions Architect at Quilogy in St. Charles, Missouri, to talk with him about his experience as lead architect on the project to redesign Energizer.com (the web site that goes on and on and on...sorry, I couldn't resist!) to run on top of MOSS.
