Yesterday, I posted the announcement about Brian Layman joining the b5media tech team. We’re really excited about hiring him because we have some big plans. Brian is classified as “big guns” in my book. He’s got a lot of development experience and is one of the more active people in the WordPress developer community.
It was important that we found someone who understood the way WordPress worked and operated and how to make it dance. Unlike some competitors, we shout from the roof that we’ve drunk the WordPress kool-aid and aren’t going back. While we’ve toyed with Drupal and other software packages, we know who our daddy is and that’s WordPress.
Brian’s joining of b5media marks a redeclaration of our WordPress allegiance. It’s really great to have him on board!
