Server-side (I'm from the camp of "leave the widgets up to the browsers"). I'm usually found hacking on server-side web frameworks, component models and testing platforms of the Java EE variety. I'm the community liaison for Arquillian, an integration testing platform built on the JVM. I'm also into alternate languages on the JVM like JRuby and Clojure.
Learn how developers are using Java, primarily on the server. Discover new ways in which developers are leveraging the capabilities of the JVM. Branch out into new languages and programming paradigms, Clojure being a prime example.
I live and breathe open source, Java, and now Rocky Mountain air. I'm new to the area, but a long time follower of DJUG. I work at Red Hat as a JBoss core developer and an open source and standards catalyst across the Red Hat communities.
One great talk after the next. When it's DJUG night, tell the assistant to hold all my calls. I'm headed downtown!
