O'Reilly Conference on Enterprise Java
Westin Hotel -- Santa Clara, California
March 26-29, 2001

Sam Borgeson

Sam Borgeson has been at least vaguely interested in programming all his life. After graduating from college with a degree in physics, but without an immediate desire to start a career in physics, his interest got serious. He worked as an independent contractor doing widely varied work in HMTL, Perl, JavaScript and Java. He was involved in everything from early web demographic studies to a 3-D java applet that showed off Intel's (then new) PIII processing power, and Excite's search capabilities. Out of these contracting engagements, came a more focused interest in the power of server side java. In May 1999 Sam took a job with the e-commerce startup Sparks.com, and was part of a small team of engineers who re-architected and re-wrote the entire site using J2EE technologies and an XML/XSLT based templating system. He focused on the search technology and the dynamic browse tree logic that drives the site's shopping experience. He left Sparks.com in June 2000, and is a co-founder of the consulting group, Carbonfive. Sam spoke at JavaOne 2000 on the use of J2EE technologies in the enterprise.
