Hi, I am Michael Vogiatzis, a Software Engineer / contractor living in London and interested in building cool things. For the past 1.5 years I focused on the back-end development and architecture of a transportation app which processes millions of concurrent transport-related data streams to help people share cabs and give public transport route recommendations.

Previously, I used to work for Social Artisan, a tech start-up where I was responsible for the back-end development of the real-time streaming infrastructure that performed data analysis on web content and social media. There I introduced Storm which became the backbone technology of the system. I have also worked as a Web developer at RTEL in Greece.

I hold an MSc in Computer Science from Edinburgh University and a BSc in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras (Greece). I am attracted by challenging work and I believe in the power of open-source.

I also enjoy giving talks at technical meetups and conferences. Past talks include the Apps World Dev ConfData Science LondonEBU DevCon 13London Storm meetup and Edinburgh TechMeetUp.

I post interesting stuff on Twitter and bake code on GitHub. You can also find me on LinkedIn.

If you and I share common interests, then we should meet. Feel free to contact me directly at michael@micvog.com.
