The reincarnation of Service Oriented Architecture in the world of Rest
APILama is the first reincarnation of the famous Lama Turing. Or at least this is what he likes people to believe about himself. APILama is a legendary creature/person who preaches about how software should be developed in an ideal world.
He tries to think Hypermedia and in terms of Cloud Engineering. This is definitely not always the case, because most of the time he is under pressure to release too soon. If you ever in your life had a manager or a team, you totally feel what he blogs about.
Michael is a software architect with vast experience in software development and designing. He has been an early adopter of several technologies and a pioneer in Greece on several domains. He started passionately diving in the world of robotics and humanoids in his early twenties. He spent two marvelous years in that area and later decided to focus only on Artificial Intelligence and on the pursue of Singularity.
After many years of understanding and coding in both academia and companies, he participated in various start-ups. It started becoming clear to him that Singularity would only be realistic through the ultimate orchestration of the various Web Sources. This is where the API enthusiasm, becomes obsession and passion. His Ph.D. research focuses on APIs and micro-services architectures. Since then, he uses his experience and knowledge with his team of experts and friends to tackle software issues.
He currently is involved in various large-scale projects, but always looking for new challenges to work on.
He loves the start-up experience and he is always ready to embark on the next API adventure!
