I worked with Doug when he was leading a team at ServiceLive. I must say that Doug is one of the best Web2.0 architects that I have had the pleasure of working with. He came into the project when it was in the design phase and he gave a very strong foundation to the entire effort. Doug’s knowledge of J2EE design patterns is exceptional and so is his ability to grasp the business intent behind a project. he has a very affable personality that helps him get along with his colleagues and team members. I would not hesitate to work with him again in the future if given a chance.
