Dave had an extensive career in many manufacturing and service based industries covering Quality and Distribution management before switching to implementing SAP into Australasian companies. After becoming disillusioned with traditional commercial software approaches, Dave ventured into the world of Open Source and quickly became an active participant in several projects. Dave credits his early exposure to xTuple as cementing his passion and belief in the Open Source approach. Dave developed the Fixed Asset series of extension packages for xTuple, has implemented xTuple into several companies, and developed many customizations and extensions for the xTuple ERP system. Dave has since joined the xTuple team and is now happily developing and supporting companies across the Asia Pacific region and elsewhere.
