FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
With a B.Sc. in Computer Systems Engineering, a Ph.D. in Computer Science, and 12 years experience developing applications for the networked world, Dr. Ronald Ashri now brings his impressive experience and skill-set to Bluespark.
Ashri’s background includes work as a research fellow at the University of Southampton (UK), where he collaborated with industry research departments such as British Telecom Research Labs, SRI International, and IT Innovation. While in academia, Ashri published a number of articles as well as co-authored books on computer programming and agent-based systems.
In 2005, Ashri decided to take a break from academia and started working as a web development consultant from Sicily while also helping his wife setup a cooking school—a common passion and dream for both. The consultancy work led to the creation of Istos—a specialized web development company working with Drupal in travel and in research-related projects that combine Drupal with Semantic Web technologies and visualization tools.
As the new Technical Director for Bluespark Labs, Ashri will be responsible for helping drive the strategy, roadmap, and vision of Bluespark’s client work, as well as providing strong technical leadership for product definition, architecture, and development. He’ll also oversee the consistent application of development methodology and project standards across Bluespark’s team of talented, internationally-distributed Drupal developers. Ashri says, “Bluespark is the type of company that I always hoped to be a part of: A tight-knit team of smart people spread across the world working on exciting projects that combine creativity, design, and pure technological prowess. And, best of all, the people here manage to combine consummate professionalism with a fun attitude.” Read more about Ronald on his profile page.
Bluespark does the Web—and Drupal—differently. Thoughtfully and intentionally designed with users in mind, Bluespark’s well-balanced, modern designs merge user experience (UX) design, user interface (UI) and mobile UI design, interaction design, Drupal 6 and 7 site building, Drupal Commerce, and custom Drupal module development. http://www.bluesparklabs.com/
