uProfiles of 2019

The year is coming to an end, and last week we got to publish the last uProfile of 2019. It’s with enormous joy and honour that we each month got to share a unique Umbraco story written by one of our many dedicated community members.

Each uProfiler has been asked more or less the same questions, but as you’ll discover in a minute, each of them has their own story to tell! 

Some of them are newbies, others are “seasoned” Umbracians, but each and every one of them has their own experiences, favourite moments and interests which all highlight different aspects of what it means to be a part of such a diverse community! 

We’re sending out our biggest SuperTak’s and H5YR to all 2019 uProfiles. 

Now, if you missed any of these, this is your chance to catch up, as we’ve collected them all for you. Happy reading 🕶

January 2019: Fedosja van der Lee

Maybe you've seen her talk at Codegarden, because if someone knows something about how to make your editor love you, it's Fedosja. But that's not even the full story...

March 2019: Joke Van Hamme

Joke is a firm believer in positive communication - no wonder she fits perfectly in the Umbraco community. Other than that, she's engaged in the Belgian Umbraco community, and she has a dream (that might have come true at this year's Codegarden)
