AppThemes announced this morning that they have hired Cristi Burca (more commonly known as scribu within the WordPress community) and a developer named Tyler Carter.
Burca is well known in the WordPress community, both for his contributions to WordPress core as well as his slew of released plugins. Carter is not as well known as Burca, but caught AppThemes’ collective eye due to his activity on Stack Overflow.
Developers are the life-blood of any tech company. It’s no secret that developers make what we do possible. They create great things, fix bugs and make magic happen. They are our modern day wizards and the grand architects of the new technology age.
At AppThemes, we believe that having a team of great developers is essential to accomplishing our goal.
AppThemes cites core contribution and community involvement as major reasons for hiring Burca and Carter. Have you found yourself motivated to contribute more to WordPress and other projects in order to raise your visibility and worth as a developer/designer/whatever?
