Developer with solid experience in building scalable enterprise applications. Currently working as a Staff Software Engineer at Nexmo (now Vonage). At the moment I'm learning how to design great Reactive Microservices.
Nerd student with high grades and a research grant since undergraduate days, I have never really quit hanging out at University (sometimes lecturing, sometimes attending lectures and conferences).
Things that I'm passionate about: Agile, DevOps, PaaS, Scala, Java (Oh yeah, me, cave man, like it), all sorts of relational and NoSQL databases (right now playing with Aurora, Google Spanner and CoachDB), IntelliJ, NginX, ElasticSearch, Apache Solr, Redis, REST, most Atlassian products, Jenkins, Chef, Terraform, Weekends, Barbecue and Beer.
Things I don't like so much: ITIL / COBIT / PMI - Suit oriented management, long ad hoc deploys, internal frameworks, dog-slow--proprietary--do-it-all--soa--/--portal--software--stacks, vendor lock-in, work on weekends and anything that can't be automated (including overly complicated dishes :)).
