About

Hi, I am Michael Vogiatzis. I am a Software Engineer living in London and building Maaxi in a cool startup environment. My focus is on the back-end development and architecture of a transportation app that processes millions of concurrent transport-related data streams to help people commute in style.

Last year, I used to work for Social Artisan, a tech start-up where I was responsible for the back-end development of our 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. Previously 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 Data Science London, the EBU DevCon 13, the London 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.
