About Vinai

I am a developer and an open source enthusiast since 1998. I’ve had a broad range of experience with many technologies. This enables me to see the full picture of the technical side of a project, which is not limited to the code only.

It is important to also consider the hardware, the web servers, the database, deployment strategies, testing and more. All of these have a high impact in making sure the technical side of a project runs smoothly.

I’m also a Instructor for the official Magento U developer trainings by Magento, and a member of the Magento Certification Advisory Board and was one of the first to pass the MCD+ exam, and conference speaker.

Vinai Likes

My family is the most important thing in my life.

I like cooking simple but good recipes.

I enjoy endurance sports, especially running and a bit of rowing.
However, I’m not fast nor competitive (except when trying to best my of personal best times).
Being out in the nature gives me piece of mind and filly my heart with joy. I also like sharing these things with friends.

I go running at conferences and trainings. If you are interested in going for an easy run lets arrange something!

Another thing I enjoy a lot are community hackathons. Its a great way to learn new things and share experiences and knowledge while having a good time!
