Personal blog for Eduardo Pelegri-Llopart. Writings here represent my personal opinion and do not reflect that of my current, previous, or future employers.
I’m currently VP of Technology at Progress Software. At Progress I contribute to strategic initiatives, corporate development, product definition and development, and developer events and communities. My main focus is IOT, particularly around Activity Management.
At BlackBerry (née Research In Motion), I was Sr. Director for Open Source. I focused on technology adoption and open source: check blackberry.github.com, DevBlog, and OpenBBNews. My team redesigned and implemented the inbound and outbound processes for Open Source to address internal needs and participate fully in the external community.
I was a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where I was involved in a number of projects: technical lead in an array of engineering projects; engineering manager for Hudson; Java Specifications; open source and community strategy for Sun’s middleware products, including GlassFish; and several adoption-related activities — most notably, chief editor for TheAquarium. Sun was acquired by Oracle in early 2010. At Oracle I was an Architect in the Application Platform Group, focused on Open Source and Community.
I enjoy mentoring employees, interns, and university students. My latest project with students is here.
Slides of most of my public presentations are at Slideshare; public pictures are at Flickr. I occasionally blog at Blogs.Progress.com and in the past I blogged at Java.Net and at Blogs.Sun.Com. My twitter handle is @pelegri.
