Stuart Langridge


My name is Stuart. I do strategic thinking and synthesis — pulling together your vision, the web, open source, architecture, and product design to make amazing things. I can understand your business, and work with both management and the dev team. I provide advice and expertise as your embedded expert. I do custom development for the web, mobile, and Ubuntu. I’ve written books, and I regularly give talks at conferences and to companies. Read more about what I do at
