Anders NorÃ¥s is a seasoned software developer and speaker. The 'enterpriseyness' of EJB drove him to Microsoft .NET back in 2002. He quickly made a name for himself in the Microsoft community by using his Java-experiences to get a head start on fellow developers. In 2006 he got reacquainted with his lost love - Java, and today he is a polyglot combining the best of both worlds to build better software. Anders is the founder of the Quaere project and a contributor to a few open-source projects. He has given talks on many conferences and user group meetings and is known for talks with few slides and lots of code. Anders lives in Norway where he works as an enterprise architect (the hands-on kind) for Storebrand. You can read his blog at http://andersnoras.com.
