The speaker description is potentially outdated as it is from a previous FOSDEM edition.

Steven Goodwin (London, England) has been involved in computing, science, and technology from an early age, writing his first code when 8 and building his first synthesizer while still in his teens. Since then he's grown up (apparently!) to become a CTO and systems architect who has designed and built global systems for Unilever, Playfish, and Third Space Learning, using a wide range of languages and technologies.

As an industry thought leader he's written over 60 articles, 5 books, and worked as a start-up consultant, futurist, and mentor. As a speaker and commentator he has spoken at many major national, and international, conferences around the world on topics as diverse as WebRTC, HTML5, game development, and quantum superpositions.

He is also an assistant at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, with an active interest in digital heritage having additionally dealt with the British Library and the Museum of London.

His interests outside of computers, also involve computers!
