My name is Arieh Bibliowicz,
I am a human with an outdated Bio. You can find my latest, up-to-date information here.
I have been in the software industry for almost 20 years, working on multiple areas including high availability, mission critical systems; identity; security; and education. I’ve worked as a programmer, team leader, system engineer/architect, and product/program manager.
I love learning, which is the reason I did a PhD student in the Information Systems Management area of the Industrial Engineering faculty of the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, working on the executable aspects of OPM – The Object Process Methodology, and while doing this, creating an OPM visual modeling platform on top of the Eclipse IDE, based on the EMF and GEF frameworks. My research focus was visual programming, programming languages in general, and project management. I am a member of the Technion’s Enterprise System Modeling Lab (ESML). During my undergraduate studies I worked as a research assistant of Eli Biham, working on creating a language for the definition and automatic cryptanalysis of block ciphers (see my research page for more information).
I LOVE Coursera, edX and all other online courses. I studied:
- Functional Programming Principles in Scala. A great course, with the creator of scala Martin Odersky. Teaches the fundamentals of Functional Programming in a clear and short manner, with real university style exercises :-). I finished the course and earned the course certificate with distinction.
- Software Engineering for SaaS (previously at coursera, now called Software as a Service at edX). Seemed like a great course at the start, I leaned some ruby, created some rails apps, did some unit tests but then things got complicated… I wrote about this some time ago. Nevertheless, I learned a lot, and also received a course certificate.
I take part in the StackExchange, a great set of Q&A sites for many topics from programming to finance. I am also a Friend of Eclipse – I use Eclipse every day, and giving back, even something small, makes the world a better place.
I am happily married and father of 4 (yes, FOUR) lovely kids.
