David Den Haring • David is the Director of Technology and Standards at Atronix and has been with the company since October of 2002. He discovered Rebol in 1999 and takes full responsibility for introducing Rebol at Atronix where it was first used for emulation testing in 2004 and later adopted as the standard language for all product development in 2009. In addition to rewriting the ASCADA product in Rebol and using it on many projects for customers, David is a co-inventor of the patented ZOE HMI and wrote the core of the application.
Brian Dickens • Brian has been participating in open source for 30 years (if uploading C libraries to BBSes with a 2400 baud modem counts). He’s worked on domain-specific language technology for Microsoft Research, was the organizer for the Austin C/C++ Meetup, and started the main active branch of open source Rebol (codename: “Ren-C”).
Shixin Zeng • Shixin is a Lead Software Engineer at Atronix and has been with the company since May of 2012. In the last 7 years he has been a major force in developing our mostly Rebol-based product line. Has has also made significant contributions to the Rebol interpreter itself including adding graphics for Linux, developing the FFI (Foreign Function Interface), inventing user natives, reworking the build system (i.e. Rebmake) and extension interface for Ren-C as well as making hundreds of bug fixes and minor improvements. Shixin is currently working on replacing the venerable AGG graphics that have been in Rebol since the 90’s with Google’s Skia graphics library so that Rebol can take advantage of the GPUs in a graphics adapter.
Ed O’Connor • Ed has led content strategy and operations for large organizations for over 20 years. Combining user experience and content strategy, Ed shows organizations how to orchestrate content across distributed platforms to create compelling digital experiences. Ed has worked for or consulted with many key brands, including Wyndham Worldwide, Merck & Co., UBS, Hewlett Packard, Lucent and Avaya. He is currently Director of Ecommerce and Digital Marketing at Wyndham Destination Network (RCI). He received his BA from Brown University.
Mark Ingram • Mark been bucking software industry trends for over 40 years. He learns at least one representative of a new family of languages every year. His official bio says he has honours in Pure Math and Computer Science, both of which currently are still oxymorons (and which nobody is doing very well or for any kind of money). He fell in love with Rebol many years ago (as so many of us did) and is apparently just masochistic enough to have hung around trying to find out why, and to preserve whatever that reason ends up happening to be.
Christopher Ross-Gill • Chris has been using Rebol since the late ‘90s when he picked it up for hacking together the odd web project and somehow couldn’t shake it. Of late, his main interest is how the language can bridge the broad domains that constitute our digital environs.
Brian Otto • Brian has been building enterprise-level, web applications for over 22 years. He has been contributing to open source for just as long, and you will usually find him in projects involving communication / networking tools or user interface design. He is a relative newcomer to the Rebol language, but he has an interest in seeing it pioneer new ways of building user interfaces on the web.
Giulio Lunati • Giulio is a mathematician and an amateur programmer by passion. He combines this hobby with his mission as a priest at St Michael Church, Pavia, Italy. When he met Rebol he was charmed by its elegance and flexibility. He contributes to the development of the Ren-C branch in particular as a bug hunter and bug maker.
