James Vertisan

CEO & Chief Architect

James is recognized throughout the industry for his technical prowess, business knowledge, and heralded smartphone app success. His brainchild smartphone app, SHOTLY Golf, was featured countless times by Microsoft in their marketing and advertising. Both Microsoft and Telerik published case studies on SHOTLY as a best practice on exceptional app development architecture and design. Consequently, SHOTLY was the top app for a period of time on Windows Phone with over 2,000,000 registered users.

Following the unprecedented success of SHOTLY, James turned his focus to Nebula, which is the most ambitious project of his career. Nebula is a privatized social network design-optimized for mobile devices with a back-end deployment residing exclusively in Windows Azure. In its current state, Nebula's architecture supports over 100-million users.
