Ganymede Ceriaptrix (otherwise known as Queen Ganymede) is an androgynous, eccentric Second Life software architect.
In Second Life, Ganymede is a freelance systems engineering consultant (as Ganymedia Engineering), developing technology solutions for in-world and off-world enterprises to make the most out of Second Life as a collaboration, information delivery and applications platform (in-world LSL; server-side Java, PHP, Python, MySQL). For a real-life living, Ganymede is a business applications and artificial intelligence analyst-developer for a small consultancy firm based in Brighton, United Kingdom.
Ganymede is available for hire on an as-required and as-available basis, with no hourly or day fees charged, and per-project sliding scale rates. Please note that availability varies according to current workload, which is currently quite high.
Ganymede is a volunteer team member of Virtual Helping Hands, Inc., a Linden Award 2010 shortlisted non-profit organization helping individuals from all over the world by coordinating virtual and non-virtual resources to assist with mental, physical and spiritual health. Ganymede is undertaking a major redevelopment of the LSL-based Max Virtual Guidedog assistive technology tool, an attachment that allows vision-impaired SL residents to navigate and experience the virtual world when used on top of the Max Voice Plus viewer screenreader. This solution allows the unmodified Linden Lab viewer to be used successfully by vision-impaired residents.
For disabled SL users who require Ganymede's help, he places himself at their voluntary service, and is only too happy to assist them in how to have as full-featured and enjoyable SL experience as possible.
Ganymede enjoys presenting the in-world jazz programme Queen Ganymede Reclines Musically every Monday 8.00-10.00pm SLT, at the Savoy Jazz Club, Marco Island.
