Stephane Begaudeau graduated from the Nantes University of Sciences and Technology (France) and is currently working as an Eclipse Modeling consultant in France at Obeo, a strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation.
He is the leader of Acceleo, a code generator created by Obeo and now developed in the Eclipse foundation. He also worked on:
- Eclipse Sirius, an open source project used to create a graphical modeling workbench.
- Eclipse EEF, an open source project used to create Properties view with a declarative approach
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.
