Marius Danciu spent the past 6 years architecting, designing, and leading development of highly scalable server-side applications based on J(2)EE platforms. Most applications were based on the data synchronization techniques (which in turn were based on the SyncML OMA standard) and adjacent technologies. For more than a year, Marius has been a committer to the LiftWeb framework, contributing to the design and implementation of various features in the framework.
