Simon works as a software architect and builds distributed systems.
On a never-ending quest to build robust software, he focuses on modeling (a.k.a solving the right problem), correctness, performance and maintainability.
Modular thinking and design is a necessary approach to succeed in meeting these goals, and OSGi is the way to make it happen in Java ; that's what Simon has been doing for the better part of the last decade.
Other interests include data science and machine learning, language theory and formal specifications, cryptocurrencies, and new computing models.
