Nicolas Fränkel operates as a successful Java/Java EE architect with more than 10 years' experience in consulting for different clients.
Based in France, he also practices (or has practiced) as a WebSphere Application Server administrator, a certified Valtech trainer, and a part-time lecturer in different French universities, so as to broaden his understanding of software craftsmanship.
His interests in IT are diversified, ranging from Rich Client Application, to Quality Processes through open source software and build automation. When not tinkering with new products or writing blog posts, he may be found practicing sports: squash, kickboxing, and skiing at the moment. Other leisure activities include reading novels, motorcycles, photography, and drawing, not necessarily in that order.
