About Webb Software

I am a one-man consulting firm that uses qualified sub-contractors for those cases where additional specialization is needed. A key part of my practice is to accept only interesting work and to keep enough time in my schedule for pro bono work and self-education.

I am a member of these professional organizations:
Association of Computing Machinery (ACM)
IEEE Computer Society
