Roland is a Principal Software Engineer at PPRO Financial Ltd and an Open Source Software developer. He prefers to find his bugs at compile time rather than during tests or (even worse) in production. He therefore is a big fan of type-safe interfaces, static checks and embedded domain-specific languages. Roland lives and codes in Munich (Germany) and is the author of sqlpp11 and kiss-templates. When he is not wading through templates or other C++ code, Roland enjoys hiking, running and cycling as well as singing in the PPRO band or writing short poems every now an then.
