Kris Kniaz

I am a technical leader, speaker, and consultant in the areas of internet computing and enterprise software. This site contains results of my work - as much as I can make it public and keep it updated. My main interests are: Agile Development Process and Software Configuration Management, EAI and SOA, Software globalization and Math based decision making process.

I also have a keen interests in implementing various interesting algorithms. In the 80ties I worked on computing projects in the the area of Thermodynamics of Fluid Phase Equilibiria and implemented few non-linear optimization algorithms such as classical Levenberg Marquardt, non gradient and quasi gradient optimization routines. These are available to free download on this site.
