Damian Mooyman, Principal Developer, is a champion and advocate of open source.
Damian has created numerous open source modules (see GitHub https://github.com/tractorcow) - many of which he wrote in his spare time. Damian's current favourite is Fluent (https://github.com/tractorcow/silverstripe-fluent) - a multi-language translate module for SilverStripe. Damian is enthusiastic and passionate about his craft and intent on making the SilverStripe framework gleam.
Damian studied at the University of Auckland where he worked his first tech job for the UniServices department doing Ruby and C# development. Damian was a member of the SDK (Software Developers Club) back then too - running workshops to teach kids programming using awesome kits like Lego Mindstorms.
Damian is really passionate about gaming, and has far too many steam games to play, but is making a best effort. He also enjoys cartoons and Sci-Fi. "I guess I'm still a big kid at heart", Damian says.
