In this first of a series of interviews on the Coding Pad, I talked to Shaun McCormick, MODx Foundation and Lead UI Developer. 1. Hi Shaun, most of us who are members of the MODx community know you better as splittingred (your MODx forums username). Can you tell us a bit about yourself? Hi, I work for Collabpad, the company behind MODx, and work from home in Austin, Texas (the best city in the US). I love my wife Jamie, Jesus, playing any instrument I can get my hands on, audio recording, chess, poker, my church Hope in the City, and fruit snacks. I am also always up for a good game of basketball, even though I will usually lose. Did I mention I love fruit snacks? :) 2. What is your development background? When did you start programming, what languages have you worked with?
