My Résumé

Location

Berlin, Germany

Summary

I design and develop software, and I do it well

About Me

I'm one of the people who was working on the NoSQL movement years before it had a name. We knew the relational model was not a panacea and were dedicated to a post-relational world. My early contributions to that world were the Apache Xindice and dbXML Native XML databases.

These days I fiddle mostly in the area of query and programming languages.

Education

Yeah, I've had some

Experience

Lots! Over 25 years, doing all sorts of different things like Database Internals, Query Languages & Secure Messaging

Languages and Frameworks

Does it matter? They'll just be obsolete in six months anyway

Certifications

Yeah, I've got some of those, but who cares? They're worthless

Patents

Yeah, I've got one of those. Please refer to the previous section regarding whether or not I care

Current Status

Happily married to Zalando

Current Projects

Fate:
A Programming Language (Patterns & Guards & Joins, Oh My!)

Welsh:
A+ Promises and Deferreds à la Twisted

Other Stuff

I record a bunch of Shitty Music, from which you should protect your ears
