Len DiMaggio stumbled into computer programming at business school and has never looked back. He considers himself very lucky to have always worked with and for fun and interesting people during his over two decades tracking elusive software bugs. One of his earliest work experiences was accompanying his first manager on long walks to collect blunt instruments to be used to “break in” new technical user documents. Len has worked for some of the better known pioneering technical companies such as DEC, BBN, GTE, Rational, IBM and now JBoss by Red Hat. Len is the software test team lead for the open source JBoss Service Oriented Architecture Platform (SOAP) which is built on Jboss ESB. This is Len's first book. He is a “Most Valuable Blogger” at Dzone where he is a frequent contributor. Len has also written over 50 articles for Dzone, Red Hat Magazine, Dr. Dobbs' Journal and other publications. Len writes a blog that is (mostly) dedicated to software testing subjects (http://swqetesting.blogspot.com/), is a proud member of the JBoss community (http://community.jboss.org/people/ldimaggio) and, when he is not testing software, is a frequent contributor to Fotopedia.
