Lukas Kahwe Smith
Lukas has been working on web applications since 1999 mostly leveraging PHP authoring various popular PHP components and being co-release manager on PHP 5.3. Though he was always passionate about database technologies. Initially mostly about RDBMS, then increasingly Lucene based full text search solutions and these days PHPCR, a port of the Java Content Repository specification to PHP. He currently works in Switzerland for Liip AG. When not coding he is busy beating up his body playing ultimate frisbee.
