Scott Hernandez is an open source developer who has been active in the community for a while. Currently he is working on Morphia, which is a type-safe interface to MongoDB in Java. He has worked for a majority of his time in .Net (C#) and Java in the data storage and architectural areas. Some of his projects have touched on mult-dimensional data storage and analysis (OLAP/Datawarehousing/Analysis/Reporting), frameworks and tools (build tools, web frameworks, OO data mapping to relational/kv/object stores, and metadata) and online media distribution. Most of his interests lie with scalable web systems and the technologies they require. Scott enjoys bird watching and cooking; and pesto at home on Thursdays too.
