Hey there

My name is Florian Zouhar.
I am a software engineer & computer scientist from Germany.

Designing and developing complex cloud architecture and distributed systems is definitely one of my passions. My goal is to use wide spread knowledge in technologies and development operations along with good communication and consultant skills to achieve most viable results. See my activities off work here.


This is a collection of projects i have created or contributed to.

Aperture Location Services

The aperture software components provide visualization and analytic focused geospatial storage and processing abilities.

The Charger is a core part providing essential functions and models to work with geospatial data. The main storage is the Tank, designed and developed to be used in cloud environments. Based on a column-oriented database it stores geospatial bigdata to do simple analytic extracts and more important to create vector tiles on the fly for blazing fast map interfaces. Last but not least the Open Source component Tyler provides minimal and simple self-contained access to a subset of your data. Published in 2019 we contribute to the public, see here.


“The Data-Driven Bioeconomy project focuses on the production of best possible raw materials from agriculture, forestry and fishery for the bioeconomy industry to produce food, energy and biomaterials taking into account responsibility and sustainability.”

My main contributions are designing and implementing cloud-based solutions to support smart farming in Greece. We developed agriculture monitoring systems based on sensor and earth observation data.

FTTH Factory

The “Fiber to the Home” Factory is a project by the Telekom involved in fiber cable distribution in Germany.

I supported mainly interface communications between components and development operations. Our components in this project were deploymented in a container orchestration system using different tenants for development and production inside the Open Telekom Cloud.


“GeoRocket is a high-performance data store for geospatial files. “

GeoRocket is based on Elasticsearch and provides a query and aggregation endpoint. I was mainly involved in designing the aggregation DSL and implementing plugins used in the commercial GeoRocket Pro version.


“Information extraction and interactive visualization of textual datasets for investigative data-driven journalism and eDiscovery“

My main responsibility was implementing the complex interactive interface. Additionally, I was taken into account adapting REST endpoints and maintain our on-premise deployment of database components.


Certifications i have achieved in information technology topics.

Certified ScrumMaster

Holding a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®) certification demonstrates knowledge and ability to support Scrum.

Microsoft Certified Azure Fundamentals

Prove that you understand cloud concepts, core Azure Services, Azure pricing and support, and the fundamentals of cloud security, privacy, compliance, and trust.

AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate examination is intended for individuals who perform a solutions architect role and have one or more years of hands-on experience designing available, cost-efficient, fault-tolerant, and scalable distributed systems on AWS.

AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam enables individuals with an overall understanding of the AWS Cloud to validate their knowledge with an industry-recognized credential. It provides individuals in a larger variety of cloud and technology roles with a way to validate their AWS Cloud knowledge and enhance their professional credibility.
