Expert Overview

Kai works as a Software Solutions Architect for Ventego Creative in Wellington, New Zealand. He co-founded the company with two partners and is also the CTO of Zen Ex Machina, a startup in the fields of digital & user experience consultancy based out of Canberra in Australia.

Kai's work comprises a mix of consulting, training, mentoring and actual development work using a range of technologies, common themes being Java, Android, Kotlin, CFML, JavaScript etc. He is well versed in Java and some other JVM-based languages like Clojure or Groovy and recently (re-)discovered the pleasure of writing software in Python and Go. Kotlin is his newest language love though.
