Steven Simpson Developer, Programmer, Engineer, Coder
Hardware verification engineer, turned software engineer, turned infrastructure engineer. Most recently involved with developing monitoring systems for supercomputers at a well known university, but with over ten years experience spanning a wide range of software engineering principles, problems and languages. This has ranged from developing firmware for high-performance network switches, building distributed SQL databases, and deploying HPC infrastructure.
Working as an ASIC verification engineer has led to an unhealthy paranoia when it comes testing software. Having lost many hours debugging deadlocks and memory corruptions, is most content when able to solve complex problems with the intelligible, uncomplicated code which is easily understood by others.
Previously a speaker at NDC Oslo, ACCU, CppCon, FOSDEM and PGDay conferences on various topics around databases and software development. Now living in Oslo having moved from the UK, primarily for the better weather.
