So for my first post, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Roland Barcia, but a lot of people call me Roly. I work for IBM Software Services for WebSphere . I am a Senior Technical Staff Member (STSM) and Lead Web 2.0 Architect for my group. My focus is to help customers apply Web 2.0 concepts using our SWG, specifically in the WebSphere Brand. I specialize in various platforms, including the new Project Zero Platform, The Web 2.0 Feature Pack for WebSphere , the EJB 3 Feature Pack, and other areas such as WebSphere MQ or DataPower in the context of Web 2.0.
I am going to post on Web 2.0 topics related to middleware, specifically building services around REST, data access in a web 2.0 context, Ajax Patterns, and anything else related to Web 2.0 that may apply. I will talk about technologies like Project Zero and the Dojo Toolkit, and comment generally on what I see people doing in the Web 2.0 space, and try to be as objective as possible.
My latest entries can also be seen on the new Developer Works Project Zero Space.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
