Dalton Iwazaki

Dalton Iwazaki lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil and started working with technology in 1994 in a school lab, at the age of 17. As a system administrator, Dalton configured and maintained the network (Novel 3.12), the computers (Window 3.11, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95), and the Internet. He also took his first steps in programming by building the school website in ASP and a computer voting system to simulate the election process in Delphi. In 1999, Dalton moved to a new company and started working with Java development. During this period, he worked on many Java server-side applications and dug deep to understand the use of JDBC, JMS, JMX, XML, and multithreaded applications. He built some frameworks from scratch to help the development, and started working on the Application Server world with IBM Websphere, Resin, Tomcat, JBoss, and BEA WebLogic. Until 2004, Dalton moved around to other companies working either as a Java developer or Java Architect. In 2004 and 2005, Dalton worked as a Software Development Manager; he lead 10 developers to build the entire website, provisioning and back office operations of a new ISP Provider with a variety of integrations and languages, such as Java, VB, C#, Perl, and PHP. Dalton then moved to a large international bank to work as a project manager in 2005 and 2006. His role was to manage the Internet Banking and Credit Card portals and integrate the business clients and the development team. From 2006 to 2008, Dalton started and worked on his own company, a design agency focused on the delivery of web solutions. In 2008, Dalton started working in partnership with Oracle Consulting on the infrastructure level of the WebLogic Server. In the following year, Dalton started a new company named VN Tecnologia, an IT professional services provider and Oracle Partner Network member. Working together with Oracle's clients and projects, Dalton's solid expertise in infrastructure and Java development are a rare combination used in his specializations - WebLogic Server configuration, administration, troubleshooting, and tuning.
