The Organizing Team

WordCamp Montreal is a community-run event that includes as many people as possible in our decisions, however the core responsibilities tend to fall in the hands of a few key organizers who make sure that all the work gets done.

Carl Alexander is a PHP developer that loves learning about advanced technology topics. Besides helping with WordCamp Montreal, he organizes the other WordPress events during the rest of the year. His other interests lie with nutrition and sports science, weight training and, most importantly, video games.

Richard loves the web and really loves WordPress. After attending his first WordCamp Montreal in 2010, he was hooked! Now a Happiness Engineer with Automattic, Richard wants to help spread the WordPress goodness to anyone else who’s interested in the web. When he’s not tinkering with his sites, he loves going to Mexico to eat spicy tacos and ride around on the metro!
