With over ten years of development experience, Cameron McKenzie brings a long and storied history with the Java platform and Java EE architecture to the role of Editor in Chief of TheServerSide.com. A student and graduate of The University of Western Ontario and Oshawa's Durham College, in non-technical subject areas, Cameron McKenzie entered the IT field with the acquisition of his MSCE from Microsoft in 1998, and subsequently worked as a mentor and trainer for other students looking to acquire a professional designation. The MCSE certification then led to several Java programming and WebSphere administration certifications, and soon Cameron was acting as a technical trainer and lead consultant for Perficient Inc, one of North America's top consulting firms. Along with work architecting and developing enterprise Java applications, Cameron also worked with SRD out of Las Vegas, specializing in anti-fraud and anti-terrorism applications, and then transitioned to IBM Canada's Master Data Management pre-sales team before coming to TheServerSide.com. Of course, along with architecting and developing Java centric solutions, Cameron McKenzie has always had a passion for writing, which has manifested itself in four best selling Java titles, including Hibernate Made Easy, The SCJA Certification Guide, and What is WebSphere?, not to mention several fiction and non-fiction works, including the ever-popular Pickering is Springfield novella. And it is this unique combination of technical skills, mentoring abilities, and passion for writing that makes Cameron McKenzie uniquely qualified for his current role at TheServerSide.com.
