Michael Carter, Comet Architect at Kaazing

Michael Carter has always had a knack for designing scalable distributed systems, a passion that brought him to Kaazing. As Kaazing's Comet Architect he can now fully explore his interest for scalable distributed real-time Web solutions. At Kaazing he leads the design and architecture of the company's Enterprise Comet solution, a real-time Web infrastructure designed to meet the demand from the largest market places in the world. He is especially focused on standardizing a protocol for Comet and is working closely with the HTML 5.0 specification leads to ensure that all developers can benefit from his research on Comet and real-time Web infrastructures.


Michael also leads the development on Orbited, the Open Source Comet daemon. In his work with Orbited he has made significant advances not only in backporting future standards to today's browsers, but also in experimenting with various server architectures for real-time applications. Much of his involvement with the project has centered on creating scalable Comet technology and providing solid integration points with today's synchronous, request/response-based technologies.


Michael frequently speaks at conferences, participates in drafting standards, and interacts closely with Open Source communities. His recent speaking engagements include OSCON, Pycon, AjaxExperience, and AjaxWorld. Michael is also an active CometDaily blogger and has written several articles on topics related to scaling Comet and Web frameworks.
