You may not be familiar with the Masons of SOA as a group. But if you're involved in service-oriented architecture, the chances are very good that one or more members of this international cabal of SOA experts is behind a book or article you've read, a conference session you've attended, or a podcast or webcast you've downloaded.
In the latest Arch2Arch program you’ll meet the members of the Masons of SOA and learn about who they are, what they do, and why.
The Masons dialed in for the interview from a coffee shop near Nuremburg Castle. Not the best situation for good audio, but this was my best shot at getting them all together at one time. Given this rather unique situation, I asked the guys to snap a few pics during the interview, which I mashed up into the composite image on the right.
The members of the Masons of SOA (listed clockwise from left as they appear in the photo) are active on various social networks. So if you have questions or comments, you can engage them directly via the resources listed below:
The OTN Arch2Arch Podcast will take a brief holiday hiatus over the next two weeks, returning on January 6, 2010 with a special 2009 review/2010 preview panel discussion featuring Oracle ACE Directors Basheer Khan (Founder/CEO, Innowave Technology) and Mark Simpson (SOA Practice Director, Griffiths Waite), along with David Chappell (VP/ Chief SOA Technologist, Oracle) and Mans Bhuller (Senior Director, Enterprise Solutions Group, Oracle).
Have a safe and happy holiday season, and a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous new year!
