Chris started programming in high school to support his gaming habits, and co-founded Jarv.us Innovations after dropping out of business school so he could keep playing. He started using ExtJS at version 2 to build administration backends for websites, so when Sencha Touch was released that experience enabled him to quickly train and tool his web development team for building cross-platform mobile apps using the skills they’d already tuned. In addition to leading development at Jarv.us, Chris is the architect of the open-source Emergence platform and helps the Science Leadership Academy apply technology to building the ultimate School 2.0.
Ryon has practiced HTML and CSS ever since since elementary school, when his father brought home a photocopy of an HTML2 tutorial and set him up with a text editor and Netscape to tinker. He is a passionate follower of the latest markup and styling techniques, so designing Sencha Touch applications seemed like a natural fit. At Jarvus, a company started by some high school friends, he has had the opportunity to work with some high-profile clients, working their well-known brands into SASS and HTML5.
