At the time of this writing, “the team” has just one member — me, groundh0g. As the project progresses, I’d love to have people with similar passions for extending Jekyll with Bootstrap while preserving compatibility with the latest GitHub Pages.

Until I find others to join my mission, I’ll be using a few of the most talented developers I know to help me with design and technology decisions.

Joe makes his living writing desktop, web, and mobile device applications for businesses and governmental agencies, but game programming is his passion, and it was gaming that got him into programming in the first place.

He was a member of the original Xbox team and he joined the Visual Studio .NET team just after the Xbox was released in 2001. Joe is the author of XNA Game Studio Express: Developing Games for Windows and the Xbox 360, published in 2007, and Fauxcabulary: Fake definitions. Real funny., self-published in 2015.

Scott Escue

Scott Escue is an expert in enterprise Java development using a mix of web technologies. He’s been paying the bills with a keyboard and a compiler since 2001 - engaging with new technologies and solving problems both large and small. While most of his experience in the database world has been with Oracle, he also works with a variety of open-source data store solutions.

His interests aren’t limited to the Java world, though. When away from the day job, Scott uses Ruby and Rails for his personal projects. And, while not quite the expert yet, he has been flexing his iOS and Android application development muscles. You can find an example of Scott’s open-source projects at Dropwizard EntityManager on GitHub.
