Travis Swicegood is part of the AppDev team at Ning helping to build the platform that lets you create a social network. He's been programming professionally for nearly a decade, but would still be doing it for fun even if he was selling cars for a living.
He is actively involved in the development of several open-source automation tools in the PHP community, including several testing frameworks. He is also an active member of his local programming community, founding Lawrence Programmers. When not learning new programming languages or tools, he's normally found on one of his many bikes, tasting his latest culinary creation, or experimenting with a new home brew.
