I created this blog to explore all things data portability. Even though I have 20+ years experience in the software industry (check out my LinkedIn profile if you are interested) as executive management, architect, and hands-on developer, my experience with data portability started in March 2008, so I have a lot to learn and my posts should become increasingly more in-depth and varied as I learn more about data portability efforts.
In the meantime, I have started a new series of posts (in this blog) to create blog-length interviews with various in the wild apps describing their processes and the technologies that they use with regards to data portability. The goal is to profile real use cases, solutions, and lessons learned when it comes to the current state of affairs for data portability technology. Note that these posts aren’t meant to recommend or not recommend certain technology, I leave that up to the developers/architects to decide based on their needs. If you have such an app and are interested in being interviewed, please leave me a comment on one of my posts and I will get in touch with you.
