My name is Uri Shamay, and I am a computer geek and Mechanical-Sympathy junky.
I live and breathe computers and programming since the age of 9.
I lead the infrastructure development in the Israeli startup Cotendo. After it was acquired by Akamai, I became a principal lead on next generation internet infrastructure.
Today I am lead developer at Juno (acquired by Gett), a new fresh approach to ride sharing - building services for millions of users.
I am also a co-founder of Java.IL, and an open source contributor.
My favorite hobby: drinking coffee in the morning with the smell of CPU & GPU after a long night's computation cycle.
I am a Linux freak and hacker. You can imagine what I bought for my baby girl::
I am working with Debian/Ubuntu & Redhat/CentOS/Fedora, and in my free time play with BackTrack :X, and hack my routers with dd-wrt, and doing some cool stuff with Raspberry Pi. I love to code in C/C++ (on a decent OS...) and Java, I live at the most of time at user space and little in kernel space. I am also a big fan of the Go language:: one of the most amazing languages I ever worked with! As a senior of multiple startup companies, I can talk with you in any scripting language :P
In the R&D I love the D but more the R.
I love the research domain, my ongoing researches:
My favorite topic in computer sciences are::
One of my biggest hobbies is to educate others, I was a computer science lecturer in the academy.
One of my favorite quotes of Linus Torvalds: "I really enjoyed doing Git, it was so much fun. When I started the whole design, started doing programming in user space, which I had not done for 15 years, it was like, wow, this is so easy. I don't need to worry about all these things, I have infinite stack, malloc just works. But in the kernel space, you have to worry about locking, you have to worry about security, you have to worry about the hardware. Doing Git, that was such a relief. But it got boring."
