Co founder of Cloudstore and primary developer of the Get Console application, Daniel has invented the innovative serial-over-https proprietary transport protocol that allows the Get Console terminal screen to be shared efficiently with remote web users. Daniel has 15 years experience in software development, including working for some of the biggest mobile operators in the UK. Based in England, Daniel focuses on the ongoing improvement of the Get Console app, certifying the app with additional vendors equipment and continuing our effort to make the best terminal Apps and Adaptors on the Apple or Android mobile platform. "Get Console started out as a simple serial terminal app, but now with screen sharing, ssh, and tight syncronization with public or private clouds it has evolved into a complex piece of software that really helps IT engineers get more done in the field faster."

Steffan started at Cloudstore in 2013 and has increasingly become critical to the ongoing innovation and improvement to our Apps and Server software. Steffan has been responsible for upgrading (kicking and screaming) the Get Console user interface, and was the lead developer for the complete re-work of Private Server - now called Airconsole Enterprise Server. Other iOS projects include Cisco Plug and Play along with the Airconsole Quickstart app which allows end users to quickly configure multiple Airconsole devices entirely over Bluetooth Low Energy. Steffan also develops many of the internal tools Cloudstore uses to maintain and upgrade the AES servers hosted in our Amazon cloud"
Naz started at Cloudstore in 2014 primarily responsible for Android development. Projects include upgrading the Tap-to-Connect NFC app bundled with Airconsole, the Airconsole Quickstart on Android and Cisco Plug and Play Android version. Naz is now turning his considerable development skill at porting the large Get Console code base to Android, allow us to replace the simpler SerialBot application with a full blown "proper" terminal client - when launched we expect it to be the most comprehensive terminal available for Android. Naz has also been instrumental in developing reliable Bluetooth Low Energy integration on Android - critical for stable wireless serial connectivity."
Working on Get Console internal testing, documentation and logistics, Eric makes use of his 4 years experience as a software tester to ensure each Get Console release is as bug free as it can be. This is no easy challenge as each release generally adds a significant number of new features which require testing plus regression testing to ensure nothing that was working has stopped working. Eric also works with vendor partners to test new equipment with Get Console and updates our officially supported vendor list updated regularly on our user forum "When field engineers from large carriers are using our software daily in the field, they rely on Get Console to provide rock solid terminal emulation. Daniel is constantly adding new features, so its my job to make sure they work before we submit to Apple."
