David has been doing software development for over 20 years. He's been using Java since 1998 and involved in using Open Source almost as long. David has focused on Web and Enterprise development for most of his career, and started working with the Spring Framework in 2006. He started working with Spring 2.0 towards the end of 2006 and really enjoy working with the Spring Framework. He really enjoys it because it not only saves time, but encourages better design and code reuse through loosely coupled components.
David started Spring by Example to post different examples he had been doing, and also to become involved again with Open Source projects. Spring by Example is a general resource for Spring and should ultimately save developers time.
Currently David works at VMware on the VMware vFabric Application Director project. It enables developers and organizations to deploy applications to the cloud by having a logical abstraction for software services and application topologies. This allows an application to be easily deployed multiple times to different environments.
