James Gardner

Some things I've been up to recently:

As a job, I advise startups at one of London's leading Accelerator programs to help them deliver the technology that proves their idea and enables them to get investment to scale their teams.

I was an early advocate in the transparency and open data movements having lead the CKAN team - an open source open data platform that powers data.gov.uk and at least 200 other open data portals worldwide.

I have previously been an active open source contributor having co-founded the Pylons project in the mid 2000s and written the Pylons book about the first release using an Open Source License.
