No, we’re not going to get into politics, there’s waaay too much of that coming to the blogosphere this year already. This post is about four more reasons I love working at Rustici Software.

The Next Four
Andy Megan  Brian

Welcome to Rustici Software Andy Whitaker, Megan Bowe, Jaffer Ibrahim and Brian Miller (who as the second of his name will hereafter be referred to as “Bobby”, ask Tim or I for that backstory sometime).

Andy and Megan come to us to keep the snowballing momentum behind the Tin Can API moving forward. They’ve been at it for a little while already. If you haven’t already heard from them, you probably will soon. They will be active over at

Jaffer and Brian bring more serious development horsepower into the mix. They’ll be coding away behind the scenes as we roll out new products that fully realize the potential of the Tin Can API.

Well, come to think of it, maybe we should talk politics for a bit. We haven’t introduced “The Thomases” to you all yet.

The Thomases

TJ Seabrooks (the “T” is for Thomas) and Freddie O’Connell (real name “Thomas”, see “Bobby” above, but he did this on his own) have been with us since the start of the year. The Thomas’s spend their days bringing #delight to our SCORM Engine implementations.

As for the politics, you see TJ’s a bit of a conservative and Freddie’s a bit of a liberal. We decided to hire them both and put them in the same office just to see what would happen. It should make for a fun election season.

I’m pretty fired up about the talent that’s cranking out great stuff at Rustici Software. This is really an amazing crew of people producing some phenomenal work. It just seems to get better with each batch of hires.

Mike is the Founder and was President of Rustici Software until 2016. Most recently he was the CEO of Watershed Systems. He helped guide the first draft of the Tin Can API (xAPI) and believes ice cream is the "elixir of life."
