I am an architect at IBM Canada, working on Cloud Data Services Experience. It is a part of IBM Analytics carving out an ‘everything data’ corner in IBM’s PaaS called Bluemix. A lot of my blog comes from that experience. My tagline comes from my double life in which I am simultaneously enchanted with UI design and engineering, although engineering often wins. I will formally apologize for calling myself an ‘architect’ in one of the posts.
I worked for IBM for 21 years on various projects, including Eclipse. In fact, I wrote the first lines of code for the Eclipse platform UI, PDE, UI Forms, Welcome, Install/Update. As a part of Rational Jazz, I lead teams building cool Web UIs using Ajax. I have some management training but I very much tried not to live up to the Pointy Haired Boss from Dilbert. I am now striving to lead by example rather than manage through org chart.
I got a BSc, MSc and a PhD from a University in Former Yugoslavia before moving to Canada. That country does not exist any more, which is a pity. Nevertheless, I still remember some of the things I learned there, and I put them to good use in my new life. When I want to impress people, I call myself Dr. Dejan Glozic, but I can’t really cure your cold or anything else that ails you.
I have a wife, a son and a daughter in Toronto. They want a cat but I worry it will scratch my high end B&W speakers. A man has got to have his priorities straight.
