Introduce Yourself



If you are new to the OSLC Discourse discussions, please say some words here about yourself and what you do so that other community members can get to know you.


A few months ago I joined Koneksys, a Linked Data leader invested in the success of the community. 50% of my time will be working with the OSLC community. Previously I worked on community engagement at Mozilla for 4.5 years and before that I was a software developer working primarily with Web technologies.

What will I be doing? I’d love to hear your thoughts on where most of the attention of all community builders for OSLC should focus their attention on. Initially my focus will be on helping to overhaul the website. This includes a design refresh, but perhaps more importantly better surfacing up content that is relevant to the community whether that be existing or new content.

If you are curious to know more about me, here are a few places to look:
Twitter -
LinkedIn -
Github -

I’m looking forward to digging in more and helping the community grow, and fulfill it’s potential to be a driver for wider production of and adoption of Linked Data.



Hi, my name is Andrew and I am a project lead of the Eclipse Lyo project. I also participate in the OSLC Core & Domains standardisation activities.

This forum will replace the OSLC mailing lists (archive) once it is fully launched as well as the Lyo forums once they get deprecated by Eclipse.

If you experience any problems with the forum, file an issue under or contact me or Brian directly on Discourse.


Hello, I’m Axel, the Director of Koneksys, a company offering consulting services related to OSLC. We want to help grow the OSLC community :grinning:


I’m an IT Veteran with 47 years of experience in everything from hardware design through being a CTO. I’ve been an application developer in many languages that entire time. Some of the applications I’ve designed, coded, and managed projects for include an Oracle Financials replacement with Job Control for Brown & Root, a Job Cost and Project Management System for PPG, an Inventory Management System for PPG, as well as Medical, Dental, Chiropractic, and Veterinarian Billing Systems, and more.

I’ve been a database developer, Sr. DBA, and DBA manager since 1987. I am an Oracle and MySQL expert. I’ve been an Oracle Apps DBA and Sysadmin since 1992.

I’ve been a Unix sysadmin since 1984 and a Linux sysadmin since 1996. I’ve been an internet marketer and trainer since 1998. I own over 400 domains and have been building websites since 1996 and responsive sites since 2003. I have owned one placement firm and 3 consulting firms, so have experience across the board. I created my own project management methodology in 1982 that was Agile/Scrum/Kanban before they existed.

I also have Military (USAF) experience. I was dorm chief and squad leader in basic training. I was Red Rope in tech school, responsible for over 800 personnel, and marched over 200 to and from class each day. I achieved E4 in under 3 years, and was honorably discharged with full benefits. I was trained in computer and teletype maintenance (crypto), and had a Top Secret clearance. I volunteered for special duty, and, as a result, taught electronics (DC through Microwave) to over 30 MOS’s.

I am very interested in work related to I.T. management, QA management, SW Development management, DBA management, or hands on development that my very wide, long, and deep background qualifies me for… especially if remote. I’m fine with any level of travel, as well.

I love everything I.T. related, and am just as happy working at any level; on a team, managing teams, or alone.

Thanks in advance for every consideration.

Please see my websites… --> very important
Thanks again!
