Hi all! My name is Vijay Francis and I’ve been a software engineer here at IBM for about 5 years. I came straight out of college at RIT and dived right into social software development with IBM. During my 5 years here I’ve had the chance to work on many different areas within the IBM Connections product. I’ve worked on everything from helping develop and improve the installation processes for IBM Connections, to developing some of the user interface for IBM Connections as well. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with many customers during their adoption of the product, helping them learn how the product can work for them.
Recently I’ve shifted gears towards the exciting area of application development on the IBM Connections Cloud. I currently help lead the developer experience and architecture for application development, as well as sticking my head in a few other areas throughout our developer ecosystem. My goal is to make the development process as fun and intuitive as possible!
On a more personal note I also enjoy cooking, playing sports (basketball/tennis/soccer), and traveling when possible. I’m also very geeky, so any new geeky toys or electronics always grabs my interest.
I’ve always believed there are endless opportunities with the IBM Connections Cloud platform and I’m excited to help show this to anyone interested! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments regarding developing against the IBM Connections Cloud.
