Luke joined SilverStripe as an intern during the 'Summer of Tech 2014'. He stood out from other candidates because of his experience developing with the SilverStripe CMS and Framework – he brings a variety of skills ranging from front-end design to back-end development.
He joined the ‘Big O’ team after 2 years of graphic design study at Massey University. Developing automated tests provides a great opportunity for Luke to extend and apply his skills, having come from a test analyst background, working on the stuff.co.nz website at Fairfax Media for the past 3 years.
Much of his wider web development knowledge comes from previous contracting roles both designing and developing websites for a variety of clients. His interest in the SilverStripe platform began with his brother Joel joining SilverStripe and suggesting he use it in his web development projects, this dabbling has since progressed into Luke becoming part of the SilverStripe community and now the team.
Luke has a passion for design – especially typography (don't let him catch you using Comic Sans). Particularly fond of devouring delicious creations concocted by his brother while playing a game of The Settlers of Catan or 7 Wonders with his family. When he's not doing that, you can usually find him quoting SpongeBob with his friends while playing video games.
