Jo spent fifteen years in publishing mostly in freelance and consultancy roles. She has always combined her love of the creative publishing process with a passion for clarity, structure and organisation. It was during a complex software project for HarperCollins that Jo identified that she could successfully combine her publishing skills with her programming skills to create websites. She is a big fan of concrete5 and loves writing clean and concise CSS.
Alex spent fifteen years in telecommunications. He is an active member of the Concrete5 community and regularly contributes to the Concrete5 forums.
On 1st February 2017, Alex died at home after a 9 month battle with bladder cancer. His last message to everyone was "so long, and thanks for all the fish" (the last ever dolphin message from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams).
