Sigrid Suski (Development)
Sigrid lives in Schaafheim, a small village near Frankfurt on the Main in Germany.
She studied electrotechnics before she started to work as a software engineer for industrial products using Microsoft C++/MFC.
Since 2009, Sigrid works full time for the Sobi projects.
Her programming experiences started with the programming languages Pascal and C, followed by C++ which is a good basis for developing software for Joomla!, especially since the well known to her object oriented developing techniques find their way into PHP.
Besides her development work for the Sobi project, she is mainly responsible for design solutions, support, quality management and for all business affairs and public relations. Sigrid is also in charge of the translations and documentations for SobiPro. Additionally she created and maintains most of the Sigsiu.NET websites including the shopping and club site.
Sigrid is member of Mambo e.V. (hopefully soon renamed to J and Beyond e.V.).
Sigrid enjoys cuisine and the outdoors in her leisure time, including spending time working in the garden. She also enjoys taking photos, although she doesn't have as much time for photography lately.
Radek Suski (Development)
Born in Poland, Radek lives in Germany for ten years.
Since 2006 Radek is providing high quality extensions for Joomla!. He continues his educational studies of Science of Informatics at Hochschule Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences and works full time for the Sobi projects.
As the development leader, Radek is the mastermind for developing SobiPro and the additional applications. As the system administrator he is also responsible for the setup and maintenance of all servers, the forum as well as the demo sites.
Radek is former First Chairman of the PCJ Open Source Foundation Council, member of Mambo e.V. (hopefully soon renamed to J and Beyond e.V.) and OSM Board Member.
Some people are seeing Radek as a guru, geek or even a nerd. None of this is true of course. He sees himself as a kind of digital vampire. However, instead of blood he needs coffee to live and work. But the sunshine on the monitor is definitely very dangerous because it interrupts the virtual live and doesn't allow to work.
Sławek Sikora (Support)
Sławek lives in Poland in the industrial city Zabrze in the Upper Silesian region.
He studied informatics on the Silesian Institute of Technology before he started to work as an IT specialist in the User Service department of a big shopping centre.
Already in 2009 Sławek helped Sobi2 and SobiPro users in the Sigsiu.NET forums, where he soon became a forum moderator. Due to his ongoing work with the Sobi components he gathered a lot of experiences with SobiPro.
Since 2011 he works full time to support and assist the SobiPro users and in testing of SobiPro software.
Sławek is member of the PCJ Open Source Foundation.
Sławek spends his free time with his family and enjoys virtual flying.
Isidro Baquero (Support)
Isidro lives in Seville, the capital city of the Spanish southern region of Andalucía.
He left his Telecommunications Engineering studies to work as a web freelance, almost focused on Joomla!.
One of his first web projects was based on Mambo, so the first step after that was, of course, Joomla!. After a few years using it, he started contributing to the community in 2008 through his blog gnumla.com. Those contributions kept growing with the time, and he started being more actively involved in the Joomla! Project, where he's actually member of the Community Leadership Team (CLT), as well as member of many other teams in the Joomla! Project (forums, Spanish translation team, JPeople, the upcoming Template Directory...).
His relation with Sigsiu.NET started a few years ago, when he completed and corrected the Spanish translation for Sobi2. Since then, he maintained that translation, and also translated completely the brand new SobiPro. That collaboration lead to him becoming part of the SobiPro team as support and testing team member.
He tends to fill all his free time with new Joomla! community projects, but he still finds time to spend with his family and friends, and has more hobbies than time to spend on them.
