Odoko Ltd is the consulting company under which Upayavira operates. While there remains the possibility of bringing in additional consultants, the majority of work undertaken by Odoko is handled by Upayavira.
He was given the name 'Upayavira' in 2000 when he was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order. It is a Sanskrit name, which translates to 'hero of means', or 'skilful hero'. More longwinded, it becomes "He who, with great enthusiasm, finds creative ways to help others on the path to Enlightenment" - a large name to live up to.
Some folks are unsure how to pronounce his name. Maybe this will help: mp3.
Upayavira has been working in IT since 1990, starting with an exposure to unix system administration which has influenced his work ever since. More recent experience has covered open source software development (particularly within the Apache Software Foundation), java web application development and systems work in python. His most recent work has involved establishing continuous deployment setups at a couple of companies.
