Country or State



I'm the founder of the Open Bank Project and CEO of TESOBE GmbH. I'm a hacker at heart (mainly Scala and Python). Based in Berlin, from London. Longer version: I studied electronic engineering in Manchester in the early 80's and focused on real time systems. Then I got into networks, then spreadsheets, then ''pre-RDBMS'' databases, then RDBMS, then the web in the early 90's and then NoSQL again! I've worked as a software developer, architect, sys admin, DBA and CTO on numerous web / mobile platforms. Some tech I've used: Scala, Python, Node, C++, Linux, Teensy, Oracle, Postgres, Redis, MongoDB. Apache, Memcached, NGINX Always keen to explore emerging technologies, I'm also a composer and enjoy interdisciplinary creative collaborations. I'm a keen supporter of open source and open data believing they are a sustainable force for social good. I'm @simsysims on Twitter. Also see @OpenBankProject on Twitter
