A Sun Java Champion, software developer and designer who has over 15 years commercial experience. Peter's expertise lies in Java enterprise development on the server-side. It also extends to web design, object oriented design and aspects of architecture. Peter has a Physical Sciences & Computing honours degree from South Bank University. He has been instrumental in software development projects for financial services, especially for investment banks like UBS, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank.
Just before his first visit to JavaONE, in 2004, Peter sent out an invitation email on the then struts-users mailing list. He, thereby, founded and organised the first London Struts Meet-up in London at the infamous Waxy O'Connors Irish pub in Soho, London. The success of the subsequent meet-ups eventually led to the formation of the JAVAWUG, a Java User Group dedicated to every enthusiast who is interested in all things Java web enterprise technology based.
