After six months in stealth mode, Accelerando Consulting is launching as an agency for the Internet Of Things.

I’m Christopher Biggs, Principal Consultant at Accelerando Consulting.
My career has always been making the magic work properly, spanning over 20 years as a developer, software architect, and engineering manager. Involved with Linux, the Web and IoT since their inception, I am consistently at the forefront of technology and practice.

I and my associates are available to help your organisation build magic products and teams, for an hour or a year. I bring a rare perspective to IoT—I’m as comfortable with a soldering iron as a business plan.
I’m based in Brisbane, but travel the world to learn, teach and trade.
Christopher Biggs has been into Open Systems since the early 90s and was there at the birth of Linux and 386BSD. His interest in electronics and connected devices goes back even further.
Christopher’s career encompasses software development, system architecture and engineering management. He built and managed a diverse, global team of over 60 developers at a leading Brisbane IT company.

In his spare time he builds and blogs robots with his three children, and adds to the growing Internet of Things.
