Geert Bevin, ZeroTurnaround


Geert is a passionate programmer and a performing musician that has been very active in open-source for decades, he works as a senior developer and content writer at ZeroTurnaround. Geert pioneered native Java continuation with the RIFE framework and got selected as being one of the official Java Champions. Geert left the Java world for three years to work on the software that drives the Eigenharp, an ultra-expressive electronic instrument. Now that he’s back to JVM-land, his passion for Java is fully reinvigorated as he got to experience first-hand how special the Java ecosystem is.
