Speaker: David Blevins

David is the technical inspiration and visionary behind Tomitribe’s devotion to support Open Source Java software. He is a veteran of Open Source Java EE in both implementing and defining Java EE specifications with a strong drive to see Java EE simple, testable and as light as Java SE. David was a key contributor and driver of Apache TomEE’s Web Profile certification which lead him to win a JavaOne Rock Star award in 2012. TomEE combines the simplicity of Tomcat with the power of Java EE. Prior to Tomitribe, David was with Gluecode, where he co-founded Geronimo in 2003, which was later acquired by IBM to be rebranded and distributed as WebSphere Community Edition. He was also the co-founder of OpenEJB in 1999 and Apache TomEE in 2011. David was a member of the EJB 3.0, EJB 3.1 and Java EE 6 Expert Groups. David is a current member of the EJB 3.2 (JSR 345) and Java EE 7 (JSR 342) Expert Groups. He is a contributing author to Component-Based Software Engineering: Putting the Pieces Together from Addison Wesley and a regular speaker at JavaOne, ApacheCon, OSCon, JAX and Java-focused conferences. He’s perpetually working on furthering the development of TomEE and driving Tomitribe’s vision, strategy and growth. When David is not advising clients on solutions for complex problems or roaming between countries to speak at conferences about TomEE and Java EE7, he enjoys ruining jazz standards on his guitar.
