about


ken
Leader of development teams on various project types, from Intranet logistics-oriented systems, through distributed back-end systems for large public websites, to rapidly evolving web 2.0 start-ups.

I have been helping businesses from multiple disciplines to maximize their business potential through analysis of current and future needs, and implementing low-maintenance solutions fitting their exact needs.

During my career I have been involved with Open Source projects that are aimed at providing solid and developer friendly frameworks, and took active part in software development communities and user groups as organizer and speaker.

I have been an active contributor to many open source projects, such as ASP.NET MVC and WebAPI, MongoDB, Castle Project, and Project Kudu.

In my career I have had the opportunity to work with many companies, and learn about a varity of business domains, such as the music industry, e-commerce, human resources, logistics, health, finance, avionics, travel, cloud infrastructures, mobile backends, communication services, and even maritime intelligence.

In the recent years I have been working for Microsoft, on myriad of projects, such as Azure Mobile Services, .NET Native, ASP.NET, Skype, and Office 365.

I love learning new things, and hope that my career will continue to serve me with new, interesting domains to explore.
