I am leading the CDI 1.1 specification, and work on JBoss Developer Framework, a
set of tutorials and examples for all JBoss users. Previously, I've worked on
Infinispan and I led the Seam and Weld projects, and am a founder of the
Arquillian project. I've worked on a number of specifications including JSF 2.0,
AtInject and Java EE 7. I am a regular speaker at JUGs and conferences such as
JavaOne, Devoxx, JAX, JavaBlend, JSFDays, JBoss World, Red Hat Developer Day and
I am currently employed by Red Hat Inc. working on JBoss open source projects.
Before working for Red Hat, I used and contributed to Seam whilst working at a
UK based staffing agency as IT Development Manager.

Kito Mann, editor of JSF Central, recorded a podcast with me a couple of weeks back. We deleved deep into the features of Seam 2.1, but also talked about the Public Review Draft of Web Beans (keep an eye on Gavin's blog for updates) and JSF2.
