And Now for Something Completely Different
For the past three and a half years, I’ve learned a lot, had a tremendous amount of fun, and made some really good friends working at BEA Systems in the Office of the CTO. I’ve also enjoyed working with the great people at WS-I and in the W3C’s Web Services Working Groups (particularly, the folks in Web Services Addressing).
However, all good things must come to an end, and I want to get my hands a little dirtier than they’ve been recently, and I’d like to get back to using plain old* Web technology. Which is why I’ve accepted an offer from Yahoo! to come and help build a services layer for a bunch of their properties, using HTTP (what some people might call RESTfully).
Starting Monday, I’ll be working with a great team of people to see how far we can push Web technologies.
Needless to say, I’m really excited about this. I look forward to reporting back about what’s happening.
- and maybe not so old. :)
