Timothy Huertas
Tim jokes he started building single page apps before Ajax was Ajax; back when the only browser with an asynchronous HTTP request/response object was IE 5.5. Tim has an affinity for the front end, but has worked up and down the stack and is an advocate for pragmatic automated regression.

Cefn Hoile
Cefn has spent decades sculpting open source hardware and software, and helping others do the same. Full Stack Devops at the BBC, Snyk and Roku have catalyzed a passion for legible software frameworks, helping engineers to thrive with minimum magic. Loves: strict-typing, inspiring docs, just-enough testing. Cefn balances his work with his life single-parenting, sailing and flying paragliders.

Filipe Ferreira
A talented software engineer who’s a force to be reckoned with in the world of coding! His skills in developing high-performance, scalable applications for web and mobile platforms are simply mind-blowing! But that’s not all – Filipe is also an expert on the latest trends and best practices in software development. He’s always on the cutting edge of technology, sharing his insights and experiences with anyone who’s willing to learn. Filipe is an avid open source contributor! He’s constantly giving back to the community, making significant contributions to a number of popular projects that have helped countless developers around the world.

Kornel Martyin
Kornel has grown up playing PC games and dreaming about eventually being able to make one some day. The first mistake he made on this journey was to find the “Page Source” function on a browser and believing that it was program code that he sees. It is too late for him now, he got stuck with web technologies. Some of his hobbies includes more coding in C++, OpenGL and WebGL, tinkering with mostly digital, electronics, 3D printing and modelling, obviously he’s a total nerd, even if he won’t admit it. He used to make music but can’t find time for it anymore and occasionally also likes to spend a good holiday abroad, exploring the world.
