My name is Dr. Mark Roden and I have been developing web based applications since 1997.

Multi-discipline Technology Evangelist (IBM Champion and Microsoft MVP). Experienced speaker at conferences in both Europe and the USA. Responsible for the PSC Labs emerging technologies group, tasked with ensuring excellence in customer delivery and enabling future sales opportunities.

20+ years of web development experience, 18 years of consulting experience.

I have a Ph. D in Chemistry and to this day the most I had ever used it for is teaching a science class for my elementary school kids. My years at school taught me how to drink think and solve problems. Solving problems is a great way to learn and improve.

Teaching and sharing of information is critical to the success of any culture, including software development. The more we learn the better we are, it is a life long experience to cherish.

My Vision for this blog is to become not only another recourse which users will come to read examples and find answers to their problems, but I want it to become a place where other people also post their ideas. If this is useful to you please share you ideas, thoughts, modifications and improvements so that the next person reading the article will be more educated, more inspired and from that we all benefit.

  1. Hi Mark,

    I would like to talk more with you, but I can’t find your email address or skype.


  2. Hi Mark – I keep coming across your super helpful xpages-related tips but then get disappointed when I find that all of the demo links are down! Are they dead for good or can you ressurect them?! Many thanks, Chris

  3. Hi Chris – the demos have been dead since 2017 I am afraid. I have looked into the demo database locally and the demos do not work properly any more. I don’t know why. I am no longer supporting the effort and won’t be putting time into fixing them.

    Best of luck in your search.
