Chris Payne

Chris’ passion for open source software was sparked by Orchard and is a relatively new thing. By day, he can be found crafting CMS solutions for some of Europe’s (and hopefully at some point soon- the world’s) biggest online casino brands. By night, he can usually be found taking in the culture of his hometown- the same place that gave the world Sting, Billy Elliot, and of course, Newcastle Brown Ale. Chris has a penchant for squeezing every last drop of performance from his applications and can often be found tinkering into the early hours just to shave those final few milliseconds from the time to first bite. His pet hate is writing about himself in the third person.
