Eric Van Johnson
Eric Van Johnson is an Open Source Enthusiast, Advocate, and general FOSS Maniac who enjoys web architecture, technology, and solutions. A hacker and developer who fell down the slippery slope of a "Systems Architect" job before becoming a full time developer. Over 25 years of professional experience in the IT industry and inappropriately using the PHP Language. A husband and father x2 with an abiding love of Scotch and Baseball.
Matt Lantz
Matt Lantz
Matt Lantz has been developing software for several years. He is always on the lookout for new ways to fix the world. He's been developing in PHP, MySQL, and pretending to understand JavaScript, for as long as he can remember. Lately he’s been tinkering with Python and NodeJs. He stumbled onto Laravel after proclaiming his love for CodeIgniter…. (who knows when that was) and he was lucky enough to get some early commits into Laravel 4 and then started rebuilding everything he had ever done. He created Laracogs for jumpstarting his new projects and rewrote Quarx as a Laravel CMS package. He’s been lucky enough to work with amazing developers in wonderful communities. Matt’s fascinated with fitness/nutrition and neurosciences in his spare time. He rarely sleeps so he’s always happy to chat about anything. Side note he has a gnarly scar on his skull, as him about it anytime.
Rizqi Djamaluddin
Rizqi Djamaluddin
A UX-designer turned into a Laravel fanatic, Rizqi spends his time writing swanky interfaces, the backends that power them, and then refactor the whole thing into TypeScript anyway. Also does laravel support and will die for the sake of his abstractions and design patterns. Has a wall of javascript modals collected over the years, and is _really_ partial about Angular. Hit him up in #questions if you want to ask about architecture or interface design.
