Upward Systems

I am a semi-retired logistics expert. I have a long history of simulation engineering, particularly in the field of container terminal (robotization). Nowadays I am still an independent simulation and IT consultant.
Besides that, I have always been a software developer, being one of the pioneers of Prestel emulators, a kind of predecessor of browsers. I have programmed in all kind of languages ranging from Algol to Z80 assembler. Python is my favourite language for a couple of years.
I am the core developer of an open-source discrete event simulation package, called salabim, which is used for all kind of application, ranging from warehouses, supply chains, ports, hospital logistics and network optimisation to material handling. Real-time animation is one of the strong points of this pure Python package.
