My name is William Vambenepe (@vambenepe on Twitter). I recently joined Google to work on the Cloud Platform. I also recently switched to the Product Management side of development.

I previously worked as architect for the application and middleware management part of Oracle Enterprise Manager. My focus was on Application Monitoring & Management, APIs and Cloud systems (PaaS, both private and public).

Before coming to Oracle in 2007, I worked in HP’s software division for nine years, on a variety of products ranging from high resolution imaging (OpenPix) to middleware (e-speak, Bluestone, HP-AS) and, for the last five years, systems management. I experimented with various roles at HP (product manager, customer-facing solution architect, developer, development manager) before focusing on development and architecture. At the end of my HP tenure, as a “distinguished technologist” in the BTO group (previously known as OpenView) I combined architectural and standard-related responsibilities.

My personal email address is my first name @vambenepe.com.

I started this blog because I love to receive comment spam. I think it contains a form of popular art waiting to emerge. Also, I sometimes use irony.

And of course the views I express on this site are mine and not necessarily those of my employer.
