Roy T. Fielding, Ph.D., Senior Principle Scientist at Adobe will have a scrambled talk on some of the major issues he is working on at Adobe, including HTTPbis, DNT, advice on the REST architectural style and API versioning, software evolvability, and a sneak peek at a potential feature for Adobe AEM (CQ) to support continuous deployment.

Dr. Fielding received his Ph.D. degree in Information and Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine.
Dr. Fielding's research interests include the World Wide Web, software architecture for network-based applications, application-layer network protocols, collaborative software development methods, and global software engineering environments. His dissertation, Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures, defines the REST architectural style as a model for the design principles behind the modern Web architecture. As a founding member of the Apache Group, Dr. Fielding was honored with the 1999 ACM Software System Award for his work on the Apache HTTP server project. He has also been honored by MIT Technology Review as a member of the first TR100 (the top 100 young innovators for 1999) and by the O'Reilly Open Source 2000 with the Appaloosa Award for Vision.
