Mike Schinkel

Atlanta GA USA

Ga. Tech engineer who founded then grew VBxtras to#123 in the 1999 Inc 500 (later renamed Xtras.)

In 2010 co-hosted The Business of WordPress Conference and in 2015 co-founded The Atlanta WordPress Coder's Guild.

I've architected and co-developed a law firm CMS product, an intranet for a Fortune 500 global marketing group and numerous other WordPress-based apps.

Today my primary focus is on WPLib — a foundation library for complex WordPress applications — and helping agencies architect and build complex WordPress sites for their clients.

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