Martin Desruisseaux

Martin holds a Ph.D thesis in oceanography, but has continuously developed tools for helping his analysis work. He used C/C++ before to switch to Java in 1997. He develops geospatial libraries since that time, initially as a personal project then as a GeoTools contributor until 2008. He is now contributing to Apache SIS since 2013. Martin attends to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) meetings about twice per year in the hope to follow closely standard developments and improve Apache SIS conformance to those standards. Previous speaking experience include two FOSS4G events and one ApacheCon event.
