SARL Cyberporte is a French limited company based in Cavaillon, in the South of France. Its main activities include running a cybercafe, website design, hosting and bespoke programming. This wide range of experience is an ideal background for developing a system such as Carrelet that is designed to be used by ordinary end users, but which draws on a range of state of the art server technology.
Carrelet has been developed by Mark Howe, the managing director of Cyberporte. His first degree is in Psychology. He has worked on a wide range of IT projects, for clients and employers including the Ministry of Defence and the European Space Agency. He currently codes mainly in Perl, on projects ranging from a secure database synchronisation system to a manufacturing plan wizard. In his spare time, he is currently working on the dissertation for a Masters degree in theology on the subject of virtual community.
Cyberporte's servers are managed by Stephen Poulard, one of the company shareholders, whose first degree is in electrical and electronic engineering. He has worked on a number of software development projects, often with a large user interface component. When he is not working for Cyberporte, he administers a registered charity in the UK.
