Stefan Drees - Problems to Tasks

If you have questions - please contact me.

A few sentences about me: My name is Stefan Drees, pronounced like: [ʃtæfaːn drɛːz]. Since 2013 I have been working at ParStream for the fact that the fastest analytical database on our planet, will remain fast ... A big mountain of data can contain valuable information. How can we responsible extract knowledge from this? If our maximum speed of analysis enables a representative account, ... Good to know that we can ;-) I love to support with words and deeds. Two technical committees at “Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards” (OASIS) bear with me as officer. Since 2007 and together with Juan Carlos Cruellas I chair the OASIS Digital Signature Services eXtended (DSS-X) Technical Committee (TC) to help advancing digital signature services standards for XML. Second I support simplifying data sharing across disparate applications in enterprise, cloud, and mobile devices by serving as secretary to the “OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC” since it's formation in 2012. 3) independent of OASIS, I work as a part of the GeoJSON community (@Github) and the IETF JSON Working Group on the simplification of the communication between applications through optimal data formats and consistent processing expectations.

A picture: ... is worth a thousand words? Maybe, sometimes. A small snippet GeoJSON. Elegant, right?
