As you might have guessed my name is Thijs Metsch. I’m a Senior Researcher currently working for Intel. Together with my colleagues I work on Cloud, HPC and Grid related topics. Prior to that I worked for Platform Computing, an IBM CompanySun Microsystems Oracle and the German Aerospace Center – DLR e.V.

Next to my work I’m an American Football fan – played myself and I am currently coaching youth and senior teams on several position like QBs, LBs, and DBs. Have been a Head-coach of a youth team which successfully won the Championship game and became second the next year.

I chose the American Football themed name of this blog because I love the social and team-working aspects of American Football. Not only is the team your second family but you will learn to work hard for the goals of the team and worship the team spirit, encouragement and friendship.

Grid Computing, Distributed Computing, Cloud Computing, Java and Python programming, Application Wrapping, API Design, Software Engineering, Quality Assurance, Software Architecture, Software Design, Modulare (Plug-in) Software, Project Management, Project leadership, Standardization
