The consultancy of Jonathan Riddell
I am the first Ubuntu Core Developer, Ubuntu Release Team member and developer of the first Ubuntu flavour, Kubuntu.
I created a custom Linux distribution for cash machine market leader NCR to run on their machines in place of Windows.
I create the desktop showcase KDE neon, for the first time integrating deployment with continuous integration directly in the community who make the software.
My software is used in the world's largest Linux desktop rollouts. I have also helped many individuals install Linux on their desktops. I can provide advice and help in converting your systems to free software.
I use Qt to create apps which work across platforms, on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
I have organised open source communities for over a decade, running projects with KDE, Ubuntu and independently.
I can help you organise your software project as a community orientated project, using the power of the internet to create a competitive advantage.
