Member of the Week – George Stephanis – Automattic Code Monkey
By day, George Stephanis is a mild-mannered code monkey on the Jetpack Pit Crew for Automattic. By night, however, George is a Core Contributor to WordPress, and a Team Fortress 2 aficionado.
His obsessions include human readable code, typography, open-source software, letterpress printing, the oxford comma, bread-making, semantic HTML, making lists, and minimalistic markup. He also runs the Lancaster WordPress Meetup group.
Automattic is a company best known for giving the world the free and opensource blogging platform WordPress and for running the website.
The company has about 190 employees and nearly all of them work from home (or coworking spaces:). Employees are scattered across 141 cities and 28 countries.
