GSA names educational director

The Gaming Standards Association has named software development expert Line Robichaud as the organization’s new educational director. In her new role, Robichaud will create and oversee GSA’s educational outreach programs, including its Executive Awareness Program and its Certified G2S/S2S Engineer Programs.

Robichaud has been an active participant in GSA since 2003 and was chair of the Transport and G2S committees. She comes to GSA with more than 18 years of experience in the software development industry, with her most recent focus being in the area of analysis and design of communication protocols.

“We are thrilled to have Line join GSA on a full-time basis,” said GSA President Peter DeRaedt. “Her roles on the G2S and Transport committees have been invaluable, and her knowledge of protocol analysis and design makes her perfect to lead our global education efforts. GSA will provide local education around the world to anyone who wants to learn about the technical details of our standards.”
