Introducing Raymond Camden – Cat Person who Occasionally Evangelizes

Editor’s Note: This month we’ve been introducing you to IBM’s StrongLoop Developer Evangelist team. While they are usually quite busy attending events, hosting webinars, and putting together content about LoopBack and IBM’s API Connect, we managed to get them to write about themselves and let us know more about them. We’ve already told you about David Okun, Erin McKean and Joe Sepi. Today we wrap up our introductions with our veteran evangelist, Raymond Camden.

Hi, you may know me from that post about I did with cats in the demo – no – not that one – the other one. Or maybe it was this one? No matter – obviously I have a thing for cats in demos. I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced, so let me take this time to tell you a little bit about me.

Strong-soap LoopBack module

After years of work in with Java and Java EE7 technologies, I recently transitioned to IBM’s Strongloop team to work with the latest new technologies – Node.js. Making the transition from Java to Node.js has been an interesting journey, more about that in a blog someday. In the meanwhile, here is my first bit of work with Node.js, a new open-source module called strong-soap, which is part of the LoopBack 3.0 release. This module provides a comprehensive SOAP client for invoking web services. It also provides a mock-up SOAP server capability to create and test your web service. However, you can use strong-soap with Loopback 2.x as well.
