Instil Software has spent the past 2-3 years helping their client (Aepona) develop 'Telecom Web Services', a platform that exposes Telco operator capabilities such as SMS and Location to third-party applications. Capabilities are leveraged either remotely via SOAP/REST endpoints - provisioned on a per-partner basis and backed by an SLA - or by deploying OSGi-bundles directly into the system. Starting off life as a single monolithic project, this talk tracks the successful evolution of TWS into a highly modular OSGi-based platform.
Tara is Managing Director of Instil Software Ltd, a provider of software development and training services to companies throughout the UK and Ireland.
Tara started off his programming career developing a C/C++ based emulation of the AS/400, and was responsible for creating much of the product's runtime system, its many compilers, editors and database.
The last 10 years has seen him working predominantly in Java, writing everything from large-scale JEE web applications for an American multi-national insurance group, through to the design and implementation of an OSGi-based application framework for a Telco vendor.
Tara also spends about 20% of his time training fellow developers on design and testing technique. He is particularly passionate about implementation patterns and behaviour-driven development.
