Dale ZakDale Zak has been a long-time volunteer developer on the Ushahidi platform. He created the Windows Mobile app, and has been helpful connecting and working with our other friends and partners at places like The Extraordinairies and FrontlineSMS. His work is always top-notch, and he's widely respected within the mobile app dev circles in our non-profit space as one of the best around. Dale has been an influential member of the Ushahidi community, dedicating many hours of his time to release top quality code for the rest of us to use, and working with the others in the dev community to get things done. It's because of that latter trait that we started talking to Dale and asked him to join the Ushahidi team in a part-time role as Mobile Project Manager. In this position he'll be working not only on the WinMo app, but also coordinating and helping the others around the world who are contributing to the Android, iPhone and Java apps.
