Connell Gauld is co-founder and Platform Director of Zappar. Connell graduated from the University of Cambridge with a Masters in Engineering (Distinction). His Masters project focused on the description and rendering of interactive 3D augmented reality scenes. During this time Connell built the beginnings of the portable runtime framework that powers Zappar experiences to this day. He also ported the framework to its first mobile platform – Android.

Connell co-founded Extra Reality Ltd in 2010 with Dr Taylor. At Zappar, Connell leads the Platform team, overseeing many of the technical aspects of the business including app development, server infrastructure, statistics and analytics collection and analysis, and in-house and consumer tooling. He and his team have leveraged Zappar’s underlying technologies to build a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for external clients to provision their own Zapcodes and AR experiences in an automated manner.

The server infrastructure that powers Zappar’s app and AR experiences was designed by Connell to be secure, fault-tolerant, and scalable. The system has scaled seamlessly, having served experiences to tens of millions of consumers in over 50 countries across the world.
