The elders are those who are willing to help organize the events. If you are interested in supporting the community, please reach out to any of the current elders. Everyone is welcome.
An early co-organizer of the group, Michael has given several presentations, performed 'cat-herding' logistics, and sponsored the rare MeetUp. An advocate of Open Data, he founded and sponsors the PEI Open Data Book Club as a side-project within the PEI Devs umbrella. Outside of tech hobbies, Michael enjoys running and dabbling with guitar and piano.
Mike has been a professional developer at silverorange since 2002 and hasn't gotten tired of it yet. Anything web or mobile is sure to interest Mike. He began assisting the group in 2016. ⚔

My name is Nolan and I like to pary.
Founder of the PEI Developers group. Dustin carried the group for the first year and helped mold it into what it is today. Dustin stepped back from a leadership role in 2015 to focus on his business and family.
Another original member of the group. Bob was an early speaker at many events and helped run many of our most successful events. Much of the growth of the group can be attributed to Bob's work with Hackathons. Bob left the elder group after an employment change. You will now find Bob hosting Security B-Side conferences.
One of the original members of the group. Derek was an active elder in 2013-2015 where he helped spread the group across the island, bring the group through Summerside and beyond.
Original Member of the group. Ryan taught the group early about tinkering with gadgets and Continuous Integration. Ryan was always a positive influence on the group until an employment opportunity took his talents to Toronto.
He lived in Summerside for 2-3 years and was a co-organizer for some meetups and esp. the August 2013 hackathon. He was also a sponsor on occasion. Steven now lives in Sweden.
An avid sports fan, Matt spends most of his free time running in marathons and playing on his block's cricket team. You will find Matt in his down time using the PEI Devs slack channel as his personal Rubber Duck.
Michael is a full stack developer that hates talking about himself. As the picture suggests, he likes a wide range of activities, most unrelated to software development. Michael has been a long time member of the group.
