My name is Mathias Brandewinder. My specialty is the design and development of decision systems and forecasting models. I have been developing .NET applications for the past 8 years, for a variety of industries ranging from biotech to retail and global health. I am very passionate about F#, good design and development practices, with a specific interest in test-driven development, and enjoy looking at code, arguing about it, any finding ways to make it better.
I am a Microsoft MVP for F#, and was previously MVP for VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office). I lead the San Francisco chapter of the Bay.NET user group, and the San Francisco F# user group. I speak somewhat regularly at user group meetings. I hold a MS in Operations Research from Stanford, an MS in Economics from the University of Paris 10, and a MBA from ESSEC.
When not in front of my computer, I can often be found at the gym practicing Muay Thai. Or at the closest Coffee House, having my umpteenth Espresso of the day.
You can find some of my code on GitHub and CodePlex.
