Senior Database Architect
After spending the early part of his career at McDonnell Douglas working on Reality (native Assembler), Cooper became one of the first two employees of jBASE in 1989. Over the following decade he co-authored jBASE, taking it from an idea to an enterprise-grade platform, creating many of its current features, including the runtime, backups, journaling, language support and more. Part of the early success of the company was Cooper’s ability to deliver the unique, first-in-the-industry, high quality functionality. With his involvement, the company became renowned for the best support in the market which contributed significantly to the growth and success of jBASE, which is used by more than 300,000 users worldwide today.
Cooper brings over 30 years of engineering and industry expertise to Zumasys, most recently with InterSystems where he worked on Caché advanced database management system and rapid application development environment tools.
Cooper is based out of Nottingham, England where he enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. Hobbies include skiing, music and watching movies, especially those featuring Austin Powers’ calorie-challenged arch nemesis.
