Aaron is a vital member of CARET’s team of developers. He provides a valuable service to the Sakai project by training developers in Java and related technologies and has run training courses on 4 continents. He is a major contributor to both the Sakai project and DSpace, developing open source programmes on an international level.
Aaron’s dedication to open source software earned him a place as one of the original Sakai Foundation fellows. As part of this fellowship Aaron came to work at CARET in 2007; before this he worked at Virginia Tech – also his alma mater – as part of the Learning Technology Team. Aaron’s background in both Business IT and in Computer Science gives him an excellent insight into both the theoretical and practical aspects of his work.
He develops flexible, powerful software that can support the demands of the University.
Aaron is a film afficionado and is extremely impressed by Cambridge’s festivals, when he’s not in the office he’s probably at the Arts Picturehouse!
