Senior SW Architect and Developer Advocate at IBM's Alpha Zone accelerator. As an architect at the IBM Alpha Zone Accelerator (recognized as one of the elite accelerators globally) my role is to identify, screen and select matured start-ups (around round A of funding) which are good candidates for the program. During the program, together with the startups, we tailor a specific technological plan and road map for each start-up to help it become enterprise grade. As a Developer Advocate, I engage with partners, customers, and developers about the latest technologies including Blockchain, Hybrid Cloud, Serverless computing, Dockers, Watson APIs and more.
