Hi. 👋

My name is Eduards Sizovs /ɛdwərdz sɪzovs/. I am a software developer, trainer, speaker, and a conference organizer from Riga, Latvia. I am 31 years old.

It's me in 2019.

I’ve been crafting enterprise software for over fifteen years, primarily in Java. I quickly grew from a developer to architect, from architect to engineering manager, from manager to IT director. Today I keep writing code, mentoring software engineers, and their managers.

I’m a certified Enterprise Architect (OCMEA), certified Scrum Master, certified Product Owner, certified Project Management Professional (PMP), and ICF certified coach.
