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 JUDCon. 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.
If so, join me in a webinar next Wednesday where we'll explore you build elastic applications using CDI and Java EE 6. There will be a super cool demo :-D
Quick maven tip for you. If you want to generate a META-INF/LICNSE.txt and META-INF/DEPENDENCIES.txt for your jars (very useful for libraries so users can quickly build an understanding of any licensing implications), here's how.
Next week, I'll be at the Paris JUG on the evening of Tuesday 14th June. I'll stawt with a CDI overview, and then move on to discuss CDI extensions.
