Welcome!

Who I am: I am David G. Simmons. I'm currently a Technology Evangelist for Riverbed Technologies. I have been responsible for User Groups for Riverbed throughout North America, and some in Europe. Yes, I travel a lot, and I have the Frequent Flier Miles to prove it. I've been carrying the message of Riverbed's transformation from a WAN Optimization company -- the best there is -- to a complete Performance Platform company enabling companies to transform their business by harnessing the power of virtualization, SaaS, and the cloud.

Before that I was a researcher in the field of Wireless Sensor Networks. More specifically, I worked on the Sun SPOT Java-based Wireless Sensor Platform for Sun Oracle Labs. I also write installers, and a whole lot of Java. I write PHP, HTML, shell scripts, a little bit of C, etc. I'm handy with a soldering iron, an oscilliscope, and a little bit of other hardware-development type stuff. Not bad for a software guy.

I'm also a passionate and talented technology evangelist, an accomplished and confident presenter (to everyone from highly technical audiences to CxO level executives) and an all-around jack-of-all-trades, technology-wise.
