The Best Thing I Ever Did Was Open Source

By | Apache TomEE, Community, Jakarta EE, Open Source, Tomitribe | No Comments

When I look back on the 25 years since I graduated and entered the market as a professional software engineer, I see a tapestry of accomplishments, failures, joy, frustration, and finally peace.  One accomplishment, in particular, the Co-Founding of OpenEJB with David Blevins, stands at the top of that list. I started out in Open Source working with Mark Flury on EJB-OSS in 1999, which was later renamed JBoss.  Shortly after that experience, I was hired by a company to develop an entirely new Open Source EJB Container system, OpenEJB, which later became an official Apache project. The opportunity to…

Tomitribe is Family

By | Community, Tomitribe | No Comments

Life is full of curveballs, which is an American euphemism for saying, “things don’t always go as expected.”  At the beginning of this year, I decided to return to the Java open source ecosystem when offered the chance by David Blevins and Tomitribe. It’s probably the best decision I’ve made in 14 years, and I’m grateful to Tomitribe for bringing me aboard and to the Java community for making me feel welcome.   Tomitribe is an exciting place to work. We are very involved in the new Jakarta EE (EE4J) project at Eclipse Foundation with members participating on many of…

The Global Tribe

By | Tomitribe | No Comments

In my 23+ years as a career software developer and technologist, I’ve worked for a lot of companies and run a couple of my own.  Sometimes I work from my home office and sometimes I work at the company headquarters. I love it! Some people need to have face-to-face interactions and live contact with people or they go nuts, but I’m not one of them.  I LOVE working remotely from my home office. I’ve designed and built my own office furniture (that sounds more impressive than it is) and made my home office, a sunroom with windows on 3 sides,…
