Phil's passion for open source software and the Ruby community has led to his contribution to many other important projects, many of which are dependencies of Refinery.
Uģis set a goal to be part of the core team in 2011 and with his hard work, here he is! Uģis is a talented Ruby developer who will help shape the future of Refinery and has so far made the second largest contribution to the project.
Like Uģis, Rob set a goal to be part of the core team within a year. Unlike Uģis, Rob's approach was to stick his nose into the middle of things and pretend he'd been part of the Core Team all along.
Rob's a clever developer who has been programming since he first got bored in his high school math class and decided to make games on his TI-86. He now manages our community, keeps our mailing list flowing, and deals with a lot of support issues inside of IRC.

Refinery CMS was originally founded by David in 2004 at Resolve Digital.
With limited Rails CMS options at the time, he built CMS capabilities for each project he was working on and eventually assembled the common features into a single project that would become Refinery CMS.
Other CMS user interfaces were developer focused, but he wanted something that could be used by anyone.
Refinery CMS would go on to become simple, clean and understandable to non-tech savvy people who are ultimately the people who update the content on their site.
Since then, Resolve Digital has deployed over 100 websites using Refinery.
Steven is a notable Rails developer who has made regular significant contributions to the Refinery project and helped to drive our vision and online presence forward.
Steven now spends his time studying toward his impressive future qualifications and as the Vice President of Operations and Finance at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada.
