At the work place, I've had to do a lot
of integration work on my current project. Instead of trying to tie
everything together on my own, someone recommended taking a look at
Apache Camel. Man, did that have a
drastically good effect on my project!
When I was the VP of the Temple ACM, Tim
Henry and I headed up an effort to get other
ACMers to participate in the
Folding@Home project. In short, this
project is a way to donate spare CPU cycles to scientists working on
computationally difficult problems.
