Daniel Wind is a Software Architect from Costa Rica who is passionate about coding and implementing scientific paradigms to achieve innovative solutions. He has worked for companies helping them by providing architecture consultancy as well as software engineering, especially in the mobile space.
Daniel started as a physics geek who got into computer science at the very moment he saw his first C-based simulation program in action. He fell in love with it and became addicted. He then moved to business-oriented software where he applied actuarial mathematics and software engineering to provide data forecast models, neural networks, and system statistics. He is an advocate of the Java technology as the industry's "new Cobol", in the sense that Java Enterprise and the de-facto solutions available solve almost all business problems.
Daniel's spare time interests range from business software needs to 3D mobile games. The latter one is an interesting topic he's up to by using the Android SDK and Blackberry NDK. When he's not coding or writing, he loves traveling with his family, listening to Coldplay, or watching his longtime hero Bear Grylls.
