Big Data Architect & Entrepreneur
Allen is a Microsoft MVP (Most Valued Professional), a chartered consulting engineer and a Fellow of the British Computing Society. He has over 20 years’ experience working internationally and has qualifications in both Engineering and IT Law. Allen specializes in Data Engineering and Cloud Architecture for big data, and his current obsessions are BigData, IoT and Machine Learning.

In his spare time (lol!) Allen attempts to make and fix stuff, plays music (very badly), and is a ball throwing slave to his family dogs. He speaks at conferences internationally and is an award winning technology contributor to CodeProject, CSharp Corner and DZone.
