About the authors

Cal Evans

Cal EvansMany moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We’re using the term “computer” loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC’s.

For the past 10 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux, OSX, and Windows. He has built a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of “management by wandering around”.

These days, when not working with PHP, Cal can be found working on a variety of projects, most of which require a higher security clearance than you have so they can’t be listed here.

Cal is currently based in Nashville TN where he is currently gainfully unemployed as the Chief Marketing Officer of Blue Parabola, LLC.

Cal is happily married to wife 1.27, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 wonderful kids who were both smart enough not to pursue a job in IT.



Kathy Evans

The Lovely and Talented KathyThe lovely and talented Kathy was born in Youngstown, OH. Realizing her mistake, she ventured forward into the world at the tender age of 20 to make her fortune. While working at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL, she met and married Cal Evans based largely on the premise of “He makes me laugh”.

Kathy is an accomplished graphic designer, having worked in print, video and on the web. She loves the design process so much that she can often be found helping others learn the concepts of good design. She has taught everything from on-line workshops to college level courses at the Art Institute of Tennessee.

When not elbow deep in a project, Kathy is the mother of two, and for some reason none of his friends can explain, still married to Cal. She enjoys music, sings in the church choir and accompanies Cal on scuba diving trips.
