I like writing books and blogs, and producing things that help people out. So I’ve made a couple of products.

On this page, you can find out about the products I’ve created.

Apache Camel Step-by-Step

This is my book and video course on the integration framework, Apache Camel. It introduces Camel concepts, goes through the common techniques you’ll use when developing Camel applications, covers running Camel in the real world and also includes some code examples.

The Busy Developer’s Guide to DevOps

This is my latest free short book, all about DevOps. It’s an introduction to the topic for busy developers who don’t have time to read a complete book (even a for Dummies book!), and want to know the basics so they can understand what it’s all about.

You’ll learn about DevOps culture, why it’s important, what problems it solves and the tools you need to know.

Safety Curtain

This is a tiny web app which displays some text of your choice, on a range of backgrounds. I created it as a way of showing a status message when I’m on a conference call. Or for when I’m starting a presentation and I want to show a nice intro slide before I get into the content. It’s a bit weird and silly. I hope you like it.
