Meet the Staff: The New Activetuts+ Writers

Mon, 02/14/2011 - 09:51 — julie

Every week we’ll introduce you to an Envato staff member or team. This week we meet the new Activetuts+ staff writing team. This was originally published on Activetuts+.

A couple of weeks ago we advertised for a new Staff Writer at Activetuts+. The response was phenomenal! We had a pile of submissions to wade through and the quality of all applicants was of such a calibre that we chose to take on four new staff writers! There’s a good chance you’ll recognise these guys, come and meet them..

Next to each writer you’ll find a short introduction, links to go and check out more of their work plus their recommendations for essential RSS reading. Say hello and let them know if there’s anything specific you’d like to learn!

Sean McCracken has been getting over his unfortunate last name by pwning web plug ins since the year 2007. Coming from the world of music production/motion graphics he quickly found a love for Flash + pure AS3 projects, but after growing tired of Flash’s 3D shortcomings, he set his sights on Unity3d.

Sean has spent the last 2.5 years as Director of Research and Development at Influxis, and is currently at Wardenclyffe as Lead Developer/ Director of R&D. When he’s not coding he’s hanging out with his wife and 2 awesome boys. Sean’s current three month obsessions include: ChipTunes, Quantum Entanglement, Dr Who + Torchwood, Artificial Intelligence, The Command Pattern, and other things you would have to sign an NDA to hear about.
