iRODS Welcomes Two New Staff Members

We at the iRODS Consortium are pleased to welcome Justin James and Cesar Garde to our team.

Justin James is our new application engineer. He previously developed and supported Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, with extensive programming and troubleshooting experience with a variety of technologies. Justin will be providing deployment and operational support to our Consortium members and professional services clients. About iRODS, he says, "I'm excited to learn about this technology and to help the diverse groups of people using it."

Cesar Garde is the Consortium's new user interface developer. Before joining the team, Cesar was in charge of the Art and User Interface Direction at the Harry Fox Agency, where he designed and helped develop all of the client facing web interfaces. Now Cesar will be working closely with the DICE group and other iRODS Consortium members to create the next generation of graphical iRODS interfaces. “I can’t wait to help expand the iRODS user base and shape how people will interact and control their data in the future.”

Welcome aboard, Justin and Cesar!
