Alex Sadleir joins Link Digital as Head of Data Publishing and Visualisation
Alex is the primary developer behind Lobbylens. Which, as an online Government 2.0 project, was Winner of the 2009 “GovHack” event and was 3rd prize in the Mashup Australia competition. The Lobbylens project required the integration of several government datasets in an informative way to present complex data in a unique and understandable way.
As the head of our Data Publishing and Visualisation area Alex will work within the Government, academic research and corporate sectors to provide a range of highly specialised data publishing services.
Alex has experience in software development, data mining and warehousing, managing software quality processes and developing and delivering client focused software projects.
As Link Digital holds the ckan based hosting and support contract for www.data.gov.au (deployed on AWS), Alex will be kept very busy with a roadmap of enhancements we aim to contribute to the open source ckan project.
One of his first responsibilities after joining Link in September will be to attend the Open Knowledge conference in Geneva.
Link has a strong commitment to providing Australian and State Government agencies with enterprise level support for open source platforms. As an Advanced Consulting Partner for Amazon Web Services we have developed specific expertise in the managed hosting and support of both Drupal and ckan deployments.
