Flex Camp Chicago 2009 starts my speaking engagements for the year.  Last year I had around 20 engagements and so by the time it was December, I had decided to take holidays fairly seriously. I opted out of anything that had to do with a conference in the last month and did not travel at all. Now that the New Year has begun a couple of weeks back, its time to get back to mingle and meet the community. To continue to learn and to continue to spread knowledge.

Humans are not horses and it takes more than rewards to get the best out of them. In fact, more rewards for complex tasks that requires sophisticated algorithmic thinking leads to poor performance.

On the corollary, does it mean those who run for money essentially don’t care about challenging wo... (more)

Installing and Setting up BlazeDS in JBoss AS 5

In this article I will illustrate how you could install and setup BlazeDS in a JBoss AS 5 application server instance. A number of new developers have difficulty installing and setting up BlazeDS in JBoss. I hope this article will provide answers to their questions and also help all those others who are seeking similar help. First lets download and install JBoss AS 5. If you already have an instance installed then you can skip this step. If you have a prior version of JBoss (a 4.x version) installed then you could possibly avoid upgrading the installation, unless you need one of... (more)

Five Technology Application Trends in 2011

Five technology application trends that I think will be most popular in 2011 are: Tablets, tablets and tablets: iPad started the fever and its not stopping anytime soon. Newer and smarter tablets of all sizes, form factors and capabilities will emerge. Newer and newer applications for these devices will be available. Big data will get bigger: More and more big data will become available in the public domain and we will see the emergence of newer and smarter storage and analytics solutions in the space. In other words NoSQL and all tools that help manage big data will boom. Cloud... (more)
