NextBreakpoint is my business name. I am Andrea and I work as consultant/freelance. I create software, I work with data, I design cloud-native applications, I automate infrastructure and I deploy on Kubernetes. I have experience in creating data pipelines using stream and batch processing. I am based in London and you can hire me if you need help in any of those areas.
You can read about my professional experiences on LinkedIn, or perhaps you are more interested in my articles and projects below. I like to create software and I like to write about it. I spend most of my time implementing backend applications in Java and Kotlin, and I use Kubernetes and Docker a lot. Recently I have been working with Apache Kafka and Apache Flink, on both development and operations (see Kubernetes operator for Flink).
I like to create user interfaces too, but only for fun. I love computer graphics algorithms and I designed and implemented a native UI toolkit for MacOS for creating multi-touch user interfaces, which is currently available on the Mac App Store (see NextSurface).
