With over two decades experience, my focus has been on backend systems – middleware and Enterprise Integration Patterns and databases are a core passion. Early adopter and champion for Blockchain technologies, primarily permissioned private topologies. Administrator, advocate and SmartContract programmer in particular, Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain.
The idea of space is a very fundamental one for me. This is what draws me to carpentry, metalwork and landscaping. The fascination with creating beautiful spaces is also what motivates me in system architecture. I believe that good system architecture creates beautiful spaces for elegant engineering. When I build developer productivity tools, I am not just designing for efficiency; I pay great attention to the elegance of the tool, even when others find it menial. I truly take pride in building actually useful developer productivity tools, even if they are command line automation scripts. For me, form and function are blended, and beauty is not superficial – rather, beauty is in the minimialist elegance of the design.
Finally, it’s not just about the tools and things we can touch; the space of our human interactions also matters. Constant curiosity, learning, mentoring and nurturing are integral values for me.
