She creates systems that enable her clients to succeed--by using her infectious enthusiasm and ability to explain concepts without using technical jargon that puts even the greatest technophobes at ease. Passionate about helping people to acquire knowledge, Emma volunteers with the Drupal and Ubuntu documentation teams. She is well known in the Drupal community not only for her technical knowledge but also for her engaging and humorous means of bringing Drupal to a wider audience--such as the Drupal socks and their GPLed pattern. Through her consulting company HICK Tech and at conferences around the world, Emma has inspired people to overcome fear, uncertainty, and doubt and to tackle problems head-on. She is known as “emmajane” on drupal.org and chronicles her adventures at http://www.emmajane.net. Konstantin Käfer started his adventures into Web development in 1999. In high school, he led the Web development and school Web site class for several years.

In 2005, Earl found Drupal and thought it was exactly what he needed to build a Web site in his spare time.

Earl has been active in the community providing support as well as posting tips and tricks when the mood strikes him. A lifelong programmer, he is currently employed by iO1, a company that actively participates in the development and consumption of open source software.Lynette Miles has worked for fifteen years in professional software technical support, mainly for Alcatel-Lucent.
