Introduction My name is Chris Maki and I'm a Principal Software Engineer at Before joining, I was an independent consultant specializing in server-side Java development. I have been designing and building server-side systems for 16 years in C++, Objective-C, and Java. Most of my career has been spent working as an enterprise architect specializing in large-scale Java system design and development. In addition to being a Java evangelist, I'm an avid proponent of Agile Software Development. In addition to my day job, I run the Utah Java User Group and I'm a member of the WebBeans (JSR-299) and JPA 2.0 (JSR-317) expert groups. In addition to computers I love to spend time hanging out with my wonderful wife of 13 years, Nicole, and my three boys, Trenton, Avery, and Brayden.
