It’s been a while since I posted something on this blog, partly due to my laziness, but also due to a chronic lack of time and patience to come home after an intellectually intense day of work and still have the peace of mind to gather my thoughts and put them in words. Today was, luckily, one of those days. Not because it was a particularly easy day at work (reengineering someone else’s code with little to non-existing documentation is never an easy job) but perhaps the intense gym session loosed my brains just enough for organized and coherent thought to just happen. In any case, I digress.
This post has three main themes. I will be talking about a platform for SOA applications called Turmeric (funny name, I know. I’m using for SOA the same I use in my lentil soup), open-source in general and finally, the Apache Software Foundation and some recent events I’ve been involved in.
