Here is the latest entry in the JBoss diaries. First time I met Sacha Labourey, he was this eager student on the second row in my first EU training. I remember him so intensely focused on the 5th and last day of training when everyone else was already KO'ed. That was in sept 2001 in London, 5 years ago.
Today, Sacha in many ways embodies the prototypical JBossian. He can code and can think in business terms as well. Sacha's influence on our company and strategy runs deep. Before he was 30, he wrote the clustering in JBoss, sits on JBoss' inc board of directors, won multi million dollar deals, ran the EMEA organization, did M&A and today is rejoining the development organization acting as its CTO. Not only is he someone whose superior talents are undeniable, he is also a VERY funny guy :). Enjoy.
