Hi, I’m Phil McCarthy. I’m an independent software development consultant, specialising in Java and web technologies. I started out developing console games, and have since had development roles in e-commerce, telecoms, financial software houses, research labs, and investment banking.

I recently co-wrote Comet and Reverse Ajax with Dave Crane, author of Ajax in Action and Ajax in Practice. I’ve also written articles for IBM developerWorks in the past, on the topics of RDF (Jena, Sparql), and Ajax.

I’m interested in modern web technologies, so that includes anything from JavaScript libraries and rich web clients, through to scalability and distributed systems. My work has been focused more on enterprise apps lately, so I’m hoping to use this weblog to explore some areas that I might not get a chance to otherwise.

I live in London. Contact me at phil@iobound.com if you’d like to get in touch.
