George has a strong track record of leading successful projects and getting new ones off the ground, particularly for non-profits, internal IT teams, software development organizations, and educational institutions. He is well versed in the nuances of software design and development in academic contexts, adoption/usage patterns, APIs and developer strategies, and software componentization based on open standards and modern architectures.
