Benito Gonzalez has been a software developer since 1994. His employment history ranges from government to game studio to higher education. In 2005, Benito joined University of California, Merced, where the new university focused on open source to keep licensing costs down. He started working on Sakai CLE and then uPortal and CAS as a developer, eventually moving on to Manager of Enterprise Web Application Development. In those 10 years, he developed passion and insight for the open source projects within his team. Missing the fun of coding (and with a switch in leadership that decided to move away from open source), Benito joined Unicon, Inc., where he could contribute even more to open source projects. At Unicon, he is able to spend time on open source projects and contribute to open source efforts as part of his job.
