I’‘m pleased to announce that Rod Chavez from Google Talk will be joining us as a special guest for next week’'s group chat (http://www.jivesoftware.org/group-chat.jsp).
Rod Chavez, Engineering Manager, Google
Rod has been working in software engineering for over 15 years at a variety of companies, among them Borland International, Microsoft, BEA Systems and now Google. Always on the developer side of things, he’'s helped ship Paradox for Windows, dBase for Windows, IE4, IE5, WebLogic Workshop 7.0 and 8.1 and now Google Talk.
When not at work he enjoys a sunny round of golf, a cut-throat game of poker and a fine bottle of wine. Not necessarily in that order.
As per the usual special guest process, please post questions for Rod as messages in this thread. We’'ll use those questions to seed the conversation.
Personally, I’‘m excited for the chat and will try to glean some scalability tips from the Google Talk deploy to assit with Project Pampero: http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/entry.jspa?categoryID=17&externalID=422. I’'ll make another post with my own list of questions in a bit…
