On joining IOTA
For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of contributing to the advancement of Smart everything: smart homes, smart factories, smart cities. I strongly believe that IOTA has the potential to revolutionize the market, thanks to the many advantages of the tangle such as security, decentralization and reliability. I am confident that IOTA will play a central role in bringing this vision to reality and I am very excited to be part of the effort to develop this advanced technology.
Emmanuel is an experienced developer with a diverse background working on a plethora of back-end solutions in different industries. He brings his problem solving abilities to IOTA as well as his skills in architecting systems, big and small. We are naturally excited to have yet another senior developer with decades of experience join the Foundation. Give him a warm welcome!
