About Me

My name is George Aristy. I am a programmer and an open-source enthusiast.

I Code Java As a programmer, I specialize in backends, whether these are on a standard JEE stack, on Oracle’s SOA Suite, or written in Go. I am an Oracle Certified Java SE 8 Programmer and have close to a decade’s experience providing service-oriented solutions within the telecom domain. golang In my latest adventure I have immersed myself in the exciting world of digital identity and authorization, bridging the old world of OAuth2/OIDC with new emerging standards centered around Self-sovereign identity and Privacy by Design by leveraging Verifiable Credentials, Decentralized Identifiers, and DIDComm.

I am also actively involved in a number of other OSS projects - you can keep up with my latest OSS activity on GitHub. I am an honored participant in the Hyperledger Aries Working Group, and both the DIDComm and the Confidential Storage working groups under the Decentralized Identity Foundation.

evolution My career started in the telecommunications industry by monitoring and maintaining critical IT systems with high-availability. I had the pleasure of working with a skilled, proactive, and highly motivated team. Over time I realized my passion was in software development, and thus embarked on a journey that took me from writing simple programs in Java and Unix scripts to enterprise JEE development, service-oriented architectures, and microservices.

In my spare time I am a powerlifter, currently with a Wilk’s score of 326. I am also a guitar player and proud owner of a Jackson Warrior WRXMG.
