I haven't been able to post for a long time as I was involved in too many things - one of the things happen to be my move to India DPE as an Architect Evangelist.
I am really excited about the opportunity to interact with developers and architects in India. Every Indian professional in USA has this dream of going back to India and work there and I am really glad that this is becoming true in my case. I am starting my new job on May 24th of this month and like I said earlier I am super excited to be transferred to the 'front-line'. (Actually, I see that more of a love front rather than a war front. Not sure why people characterise field as a 'war front'.)
I will continue to post my views on SOA, Data and other such things in my blog.
