Erica saves her pennies to travel the world, see new things, experience new cultures, hike new terrain, meet new people, and understand new perspectives. It makes her uncomfortable and she loves it. Aside from traveling, she’s obsessed with podcasts, plant-based eating, craft cocktails, being out in nature, and making things from scratch.
To fund her travels and various hobbies, Erica owns and operates her own company, Studio RedDesigns, where she works as a UX / UI consultant partnering with companies, agencies, and developers all over the world to craft digital solutions that align business goals with user goals to achieve results. She's a co-founder of Skrift — an online Umbraco community magazine, a 2016 Umbraco MVP winner, and a certified Umbraco Expert, and a huge advocate for decreasing the gender gap in the tech industry.
Kevin Giszewski is a computer nerd living the quiet life of a husband and father in Midwest America.
He enjoys long walks off short piers when things go incredibly wrong while coding.
When not over-engineering code, Kevin enjoys making short videos on YouTube, American sports and binge-watching streamed content.
Kevin occasionally skips 'deployment Fridays' and spoils his kids with roller-skating night.
