I’m Omer Dawelbeit. My passion for computers and programming started as a hobby back in the day and evolved over the years to cover stuff such as Web technologies, cloud computing, Big Data and IoT. I’ve a PhD in Computer Science,16+ years of technical leadership, consultancy experience and hands-on software development. I’ve built digital capabilities, designed and implemented both large and small applications for businesses ranging from Startups to Blue-Chip. I’m also a regular contributor to Open Source through my GitHub repos. I like technical challenges and pushing the limit of what’s possible, I like to motivate and I’m always positive .

I’m a Google Developer Expert for Cloud and currently work as a consultant helping clients establish and operate their digital capabilities. I’ve founded two startups in the past. I was also the co-organiser for the Reading and Thames Valley Google Developers Group and have grown the group through technical community engagement and collaboration. I enjoy mentoring & inspiring others on digital technologies, sharing knowledge through open source code samples, presentations and blog posts. Below is a brief summary of my community engagements.
