Tony McGuckin is a senior software engineer in the IBM Ireland software lab. Having studied software engineering at the University of Ulster, he began his career with IBM in 2006 and joined the XPages core runtime team shortly thereafter. When not directly contributing to the core runtime, Tony is busy with software research and development for the next generation of application development tooling, most recently focusing on mobile and responsive design. Tony also spends a lot of time directly engaging with IBM customers as an XPages consultant, where he shows his flair for UI development and his deep understanding of application performance. Tony enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, and getting out into the great outdoors for hill walking and the occasional chance to do some hunting in the surrounding hillsides of his native County Derry.
