These pages are a mix of a blog and a collection of short articles. I call them "ramblings" because these notes are typically based on my personal opinions and observations as opposed to official "articles". As I have a broad background in software and IT, the topics also tend to cover a broad range. Naturally, they include integration, messaging and my current work on conversation patterns. I also tend to ramble about enterprise architects and architecture, events I spoke at as well as patterns and writing.

These are my Ramblings on Gregor. See all Ramblings.    Subscribe  Subscribe to my ramblings via RSS.

Reflecting on Enterprise Integration Patterns   January 1, 2008

The end of the year is always the time to reflect on the past happenings. My friends in Japan often send a New Year's card with 12 pictures, each showing the significant event during the month. I am not sure something significant related to Enterprise Integration Patterns happened each month, but I think it's still nice to reflect a little bit on the history and current state of the patterns. After all, the patterns have matured from a draft paper to being adopted as the lingua franca for a number of open source messaging projects. Read more »

I May Be a Flake, But At Least I Am Published!   May 2, 2007

I have been pretty quiet recently, but I finally have some results to show. The current issue of IEEE Internet Computing (May/June 2007) contains my guest column for "Toward Integration". Also, I authored one chapter in the upcoming book "SOA Expertenwissen" (in German). Read more »

Ramblings Now In Audio   October 12, 2005

Two years ago you were not cool if you did not have a blog. Today you are not cool if you have not done a podcast. Of course I cannot allow myself to fall behind, so here is my podcast on layered applications: Read more »

New Packaging, Same Good Content   August 1, 2005

As many people have already heard, I changed employers. Before the rumor mill completes its work entirely, here a few comments from my end. Read more »
