We’re happy to greet out next speaker – one of the guys behind default themes Twenty Thirteen and Twenty Fourteen, Konstantin Obenland.
Konstantin is a Code Wrangler at Automattic, where he’s working on WordPress Core full-time. He has a long history of contributing to WordPress, starting out with releasing plugins and reviewing themes as part of the WordPress Theme Review Team, before he focused on bundled themes, co-leading the development of Twenty Thirteen and Twenty Fourteen. At Automattic, Konstantin is also a leading contributor to Underscores, a WordPress starter theme that is featured in the WordPress Theme Development Handbook and recommended by the Theme Review Team.
Born and raised in Germany, he moved to the United States two years ago where he now lives in Ventura, a small coastal city in Southern California. There he enjoys the great weather and sandy beaches, tasty Mexican food, diverse craft beer, and the year-around strawberry season.
