Rafik Naccache is a Senior IT architect from Tunisia with 20 years of experience in Software, AI, Data, and Cloud. He worked as an executive, technical leader, co-founder, and consultant with organizations in industries as diverse as the Telecoms, Oil and Gaz, Cybersecurity, Finance, and eCommerce – located in Tunisia, Morocco, Oman, France, and the US.
Currently, he is running a consultancy, fekr technologies, and is acting as Chief Product and Technology Officer at https://tayara.tn, a major ad and marketplace platform in Tunisia (Approx 400 million requests / month), in which he is setting up innovative payment methods. As such, Rafik is particularly interested in Blockchain technologies in general - and Hyperledger in particular - to implement secure and fast payment and escrow systems to eCommerce or any platform that needs high transactions throughput.
Rafik is also a contributor to the Hyperledger Iroha Python Client Library( https://github.com/hyperledger/iroha-python ), where he added sorting order to Iroha Transactions Listing.
As an industry practitioner, I want to help craft "lighter" Hyperledger DLT technologies - designed for high Throughput systems - like Burrow or Iroha - to be more production-ready.
Having had a bad experience with an Iroha roll-out for tayara.tn, I was quite frustrated as the initial value proposition was promising: a DLT with decent response time, geared towards mortal developers
So I want to bring to the table my expertise in software architecture, data engineering, and the privileged insights that I have as a major eCommerce / marketplace operator, so we can make this dream of light DLTs for the masses happen
