Jan Macháček

Pointy-haired engineer

Jan Machacek is a passionate technologist with hands-on experience with the practical aspects of software delivery (architecture, quality, CI, CD); the project management approaches (applying the principles of agile project management); mentoring and motivating the engineering & business teams. He shares his expertise and passion for software as the editor of the Open Source Journal, regularly contributes to open source projects and speaks at conferences in the UK and abroad. Jan is the author of many open source projects (various Typesafe Activators, Reactive Monitor, Akka Patterns, Akka Extras, Scalad, Specs2 Spring and others), books and articles.

Jan will show the details of the muvr exercise analysis project, from the code that runs on the wearables; the signal processing, sensor data fusion and classification on the mobile; the server-side code that ingests the classified data; ending up with Spark code that computes personalised exercise prediction models.

Alongside the code, Jan will share the data that his team has collected, and the insights one might make from the data.

To close, Jan will outline the experimental & research areas that the Muvr team wants to cover in the near future—for example physiotherapy, injury prevention & detection.
