Lots of Change

Well, lots of things have changed since the last time I blogged, and yes, I know, it has been a very long time!

So first, some updates. I am now VP Community at Forgerock, as well as leading the OpenAM Engineering team. This is currently taking most of my time.

First, let me talk about OpenAM Engineering. Forgerock is currently hiring, and looking for Java engineers to work on all of our products, especially out of the portland engineering center. I am based in the Portland office, and we are building a team of strong engineers, in both development and support.

We are in the process of hiring development engineers, QA Engineers, Tech Pubs, as well as Support Engineers. If you are interested in working at a really cool company, with really good people, please drop us a line, and send your resume to

Jonathan Scudder is also in OpenAM Engineering, and is the OpenAM Architect. The architects are trying to work out all the challenges in implementing Jamie’s direction, of common code, and reuse across all products.

Building the team in the Portland Engineering Center is my primary goal over the next several months.

My other focus, is one of my passions. Community. I will be focusing on community matters this year, attending many of the identity conferences, as well as many of the development, and opensource conferences.

I will be attending the Kantara initiative meeting in Munich this week, and then I am speaking on a panel at the KuppingerCole European Identity Conference also in Munich.

Stop by and say hello if you are going to be there, and feel free to let me know if there are any conferences you think we should attend!

Stay tunes for OpenAM Release 10, due out in a week or so.
