Bio:

I started my career in 1995, gaining experience in a vast array of technologies. Initially working with Linux as a system administrator and deploying and installing OpenMosix clusters for 3D rendering. This lead me to discover a passion for teaching, and I spent 2 years teaching Linux system administration and software development to engineers, for private and public companies. I then moved to Japan where I worked for more than 7 years, totally immersed in a traditional Japanese corporative environment. I mainly worked as a system administrator, migrating UNIX systems, (HP-UX, Solaris) into Linux. I got involved in the open source community, serving as VP of the Tokyo Linux Users Group and being active in the Open Solaris Tokyo Users Group. In 2010 I decided to jump into mobile apps development, and during that time I released more than 20 apps in the App Store for clients as a contractor. Currently I live and work in Brighton (UK). I’m focusing on Python development, DevOps, IaC (Infrastructure as code), mobile apps development and video games development.
