I have been in IT for 20+ years and have a wide range of experience, making me see pron;em from an angle which other might not. I have deep technology skiils, complemented by good process skills. I have worked in the engineering, financial, and security fields in IT. Nowadays one of the things I do it to look for deficiences in your continous delivery pipeline and help you optimise it - irrepsective of technology or human issues. I have also become a proficient technical writer.

On the technical side I can help anyone out with Java, Groovy, C++, Perl or Python. (I have also experience in other languages, but those are the strongest).

I serve on both the steering committees of the Agile Testing Alliance and the DevOps++ Alliance. I have written a book on extending Gradle and is currently in the process of completing the second volume.

Have a look at my range of OSS projects that I either maintain or are a contributor to:
  • GitLab:
  • GitHub:
I have also been responsible for a number of very successful propietary products including:
  • Large scale validation systems for anti-malware which included multiple distributed systems on heterogenous systems. Included C++, C#, Perl work, Jenkins, Gradle.
  • Real-time networking scanning and interception using a combination of custom and commodity hardware. Included C/C++, Perl, Python work - also Jenkins, Gradle.
  • Can travel when required most places - prefer 75% remote work, 25% on-site.
  • 3h from Barcelona & Toulouse airports
  • Travel to USA needs to be discussed.
