Biography: David Laing

I love to build stuff. Well.

Fundamentally I'm a pragmatist; who gets his kicks from getting software built. I identify and implement whatever will advance a project; with a specific focus on technical skills and practises (TDD, CI, pair programming, clean code).

I'm plugged into most software communities; reading, listening and attending. I filter, focus and introduce techniques & technologies that will benefit my team.

I've recently become a father, and discovered I love being a family man. (Also that I can operate with almost no sleep, but that's another story...)

Presentation: Integration At Scale: Lessons Learned From The New Enterprise Web

Track: Industrial-Strength Architecture for Integration and Web Computing / Time: Friday 11:50 - 12:50 / Location: Fleming

The mobile device revolution has upended our traditional view of the world wide web. The enterprise web is now about integration: connecting any device to to any data, reliably and under wildly fluctuating load. How has this affected web architecture, and what changes in the day-to-day operation of the web resource? Join us for this panel of senior enterprise architects, each of whom has met the challenge of the new enterprise web.
