Daniel Bodart is an independent consultant and contractor. He is currently working with Springer IT building great software and creating an awesome place to work. In a previous life he was a consultant for ThoughtWorks generally causing trouble and mayhem where ever he went. He is still a creator and contributor to a large number of open-source libraries no-one has ever heard of.
