Tamimi Ahmad

Tamimi enjoys educating people about and exploring innovative ways of integrating Solace technologies with emerging tools, technologies and techniques. With this focus in mind he’s helped Solace’s developer relations team run scores of virtual events for individual developers and partners alike, frequently presenting or facilitating tutorials and hands-on workshops.

Prior to Solace, Tamimi played a role at Qlik, a leading provider of business intelligence and data analytics solutions, and was an automation specialist for You.i TV which provides a platform for video streaming apps. His experience in those fields, combined with his event-driven architecture expertise, makes Tamimi highly sought after as a guest speaker on podcasts and – before Covid and hopefully soon again – in-person speaking engagements.

Tamimi enjoys all things tech, and has been actively supporting social entrepreneurship in the Ottawa-area tech community for over a decade. He currently serves as director of a non-profit called Connected Canadians that aims to reduce isolation amongst older adults by promoting digital literacy skills and providing technology training and support.

Tamimi holds a bachelor’s degree in communication engineering from Carleton University, and when he’s not immersed in technology he enjoys photography and DJing.
