Mike Schinkel

Georgia Tech engineering who founded and grew VBxtras to #123 in the 1999 Inc 500 (later renamed Xtras.) In 2007 I organized the Atlanta Web Entrepreneurs and co-hosted The Business of WordPress Conference in 2010. I've architected and co-developed several WordPress-based platforms including a large law firm CMS product and an intranet for a Fortune 500 global marketing group. Today I am a co-founder of a soon-to-launch company The Coder's Guild to empower startup founders to build their own web app MVP, using WordPress and to help agencies source talent for WordPress projects.

Oh and when I was a teenager I raced motorcross, too.
