I’m a product manager with IBM’s WebSphere Software division. This site contains Savio’s personal views. IBM does not necessarily agree with the views expressed here. I’ve been writing about the happy combination of open source and traditional commercial software to solve customer problems.  I err on the side of pragmatism in religious debates around open source (which, happily are occurring with much less frequency these days).

I blog here and for InfoWorld’s Open Sources blog.

You can drop me a line at: savio thirteen at google’s mail service. Use the numerical representation of thirteen and by now I’m sure you know the name of google’s mail service ;-)

    Out of 25 total JBoss positions, 23 are for sales and consulting, 2 are for engineering.

    Hello Savio,

    My name is Trevor Cape, I am from Appcelerator and I am contacting you to inform you that I have some new updates for your readers regarding the Titanium mobile development platform. I know that information on Titanium would be invaluable to your readers, Titanium gives a web developer, with a standard web technology skill set (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) the ability to easily develop cross-platform mobile applications.

    IDC recently featured Appcelerator as “a mobile opportunity for web developers”. Please let me know if you are interested as I can send you more general information as well as information about our new program offering free Titanium training for your readers. Check us out at http://www.appcelerator.com.
