Founder and President of Open Software Integrators, LLC (http://osintegrators.com
). Open Software Integrators specializes in Open Source solutions (consulting, training, application development). We have offices in both Durham, NC and Chicago, IL. We do training, consulting and application development. We specialize in mobile, open source and cloud-based technologies especially but not exclusively including: Java, Ruby, Linux, Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad), Titanium (for cross-platform), Hadoop, MongoDB, Couchbase and Neo4j. A lot of our work comes through our partners such as VMWare (http://vmware.com
) and Neo Technologies http://www.neotechnology.com
as well as our sister company ShadowSoft (http://shadow-soft.com
I formally served on the board of the Open Source Initiative (http://opensource.org
) and I still help out as a member.
As a developer turned manager, I'm a Java and Linux kind of guy. I don't like problems that I can't solve (i.e. because some vendor won't cough up the code). A core interest of mine is in bringing new and emerging technologies into our practice and building on specialties within our organization.
I'm a dad with 3 kids, a wife, and a red 2009 Ninja 650! I'm a foodie who lives in the "foodiest small town" in North America. I'm a geek who has watched Battlestar Galactica more times than you have.
