Emma Jane Hogbin
Emma Jane Hogbin has been working as a web developer since 1996. Her infectious enthusiasm and ability to explain concepts without using technical jargon puts even the greatest technophobes at ease. Passionate about helping people to acquire knowledge, Emma Jane volunteers with the Drupal and Ubuntu documentation teams, has co-authored a best selling book, Front End Drupal, and has written several articles for Linux Pro Magazine. In 2010 she is open sourcing her business with monthly DIY open source business kits (www.100mileclientroster.com).
Well-known in the open source community for her technical knowledge, Emma also uses her enthusiastic Canadian humour to bring open source to a wider audience…such as the Drupal socks and their GPLed pattern. Through her consulting company HICK Tech, and at conferences around the world, Emma Jane has inspired people to overcome fear, uncertainty, and doubt and to tackle problems head-on. She chronicles her adventures at www.emmajane.net.
