Charles Kendrick

Charles Kendrick is CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, which he co-founded in 2000 to pursue more powerful and flexible ways of building software via DHTML — today’s AJAX.

Charles is the architect of the SmartClient AJAX platform, technology which powers many of the world’s most sophisticated AJAX RIAs and is relied on in critical, high volume systems throughout the Fortune 500.

Prior to co-founding Isomorphic, Charles worked on a variety of enterprise and consumer applications and platforms in roles at HP, Siemens and several start-ups, where he collected and refined the best practices and patterns now found in SmartClient.

When not working, Charles can be found surfing, making unusual vodka infusions, or cooking with his wife. Charles is an alumnus of Stanford University, where he studied symbolic systems.
