Larry Karnowski is the lead user interface developer for the OpenNMS project, the open source network management system. His goal is to make the sometimes obscure, obtuse, and obfuscated world of network management accessible (and even fun!).
Karnowski got his start in user interfaces for network management at Worldcom where he led the user interface team that developed Worldcom’s frame-relay management system. Being a devoted open source advocate, he jumped at the chance to take a hand in developing OpenNMS which leverages open source technologies like Tomcat, Xerces, Xalan, JoeSNMP, Log4J, JBoss, Castor, and Ant.
