Our team

Mark Little

I work for Red Hat, where I lead JBoss technical direction and research/development. Prior to this I was SOA Technical Development Manager and Director of Standards. I was Chief Architect and co-founder at Arjuna Technologies, an HP spin-off (where I was a Distinguished Engineer). I've been working in the area of reliable distributed systems since the mid-80's. My PhD was on fault-tolerant distributed systems, replication and transactions. I'm also a Professor at Newcastle University and Lyon.

Tom Jenkinson

Project Lead

I am the project lead for the Narayana project at Red Hat. I specialise in transaction and integration technologies primarily in the distributed systems field. I hold a 1st Class Honours degree in Computer Science from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK. Prior to working at Red Hat, I worked on messaging and transaction products and as a senior consultant specialising in integration projects.

Michael Musgrove

Michael Musgrove is a developer with 20+ years experience building distributed systems using CORBA, Java EE and OSI. He currently works in the transactions team at Red Hat, Inc implementing Java and C++ solutions for the middleware market.

Prior to his role at Red Hat Michael was involved with a variety of technologies including software and hardware fault tolerance, management of distributed systems and systems management products for servers.

His latest interests include how to apply these experiences in a REST setting.
