I'm a search technologies, distributed systems and architecture expert. Over the years I built and maintained several big mission-critical systems on both Windows and Linux, and gained a lot of experience I now use to perfect systems built to deal with scale.
A hands-on architect and an active developer, on paid projects and also doing open-source work, I particularly like solving complex problems with simple and elegant solutions. A world-renowned search technologies expert, acting as an Apache Lucene.NET committer and PMC member, Elasticsearch Consulting Partner, Microsoft MVP and an author.
Today I'm a frequent speaker at international conferences and provide on-site training and consultancy services around the world via BigData Boutique.
I have strong background in .NET and the JVM ecosystems, including vast experience with databases, NoSQL technologies, messaging technologies and search engines. Continuously learning new technologies and experiencing new methodologies first hand.
