Hanni Ross, Automattic

Tinkering with WordPress since before it was WordPress, Hanni hails from both Warwick, UK and Bordeaux, France. When not engineering happiness, she spends her time studying law. The hilarity of trying to fit everything in means she often feels the need to, in the words of Monty Python, run away.

John James Jacoby, Automattic

A native Wisconsinite, John has natural love of beer, cheese, and a strong dislike for sub-zero temperatures. He is a lover of naps, puppies, puzzles, and things with wheels and gears. When he isn’t helping build neat stuff with code, he enjoys traveling the world, taking pictures, a good cup-o-tea, and helping people use (and extend) WordPress, BuddyPress, and bbPress.

Marko Heijnen

I’m Marko Heijnen, 25 years old and have more then five years experience in WordPress and almost three years experience in iOS. I contributed to WordPress 3.0 and 3.3 and since the start of 2012 I will contribute to the WordPress iOS app.

I have been a freelancer now for the past six months. I only do projects where there is need for a lot of custom work. My passion is all about the combination of WordPress and mobile. Not only on a technical way but also in the interaction from the users and the app.

Wilhelm Joys Andersen

Wilhelm Joys Andersen elsker alt som er godt håndverk, enten det er snakk om programvare, sko, jernbane eller eiswein. Det gjør ham til en vrang og kresen kritiker, og han er aller mest kritisk til det han lager selv.

Når han ikke bygger nettsider eller hacker testroboter spiller han Battlefield og lengter tilbake til Tokyo.

Zé Fontainhas, Automattic

Initially convinced that he was applying for a drumming gig with The Dave Matthews Band, Zé landed at Automattic after a long time spent trying to solve people’s WordPress-related problems in five continents and as many languages. Since he grew up in Portugal, Angola and Belgium, went to school and worked in Austria and the U.S., and one of his daughters is American, he gets where most people are coming from. He’s still trying to figure out what any one of his three daughters wants, though.
