With over 18 years experience working for clients in Finance, Telecoms and Academic Publishing, he is a firm advocate for simple, Test-Driven solutions and empowering teams to deliver them.
He is the author of multiple Open Source projects in a variety of JVM and non-JVM languages and most recently has been working extensively on http4k.
David first delivered Kotlin into a production on a major platform in summer of 2016, and has been helping teams to migrate their Java codebases to the language ever since.
