Joe is the Lead Web Developer at Triangle Park Creative and part of the Lullabot training staff. He has been doing programming since 2003, and is the person who first introduced Drupal to Triangle Park Creative. The open-source software appealed to him not only on its own merits, but because its strong, active programmer community made it a good fit with Triangle Park's own mission and outlook. In the intervening years, he's becoming an active member himself of both the local Drupal community and the worldwide community at drupal.org. He's also worked to develop a set of best practices for developing Drupal sites, and is particularly skilled at explaining technical concepts in ways we can all understand.
