For most veterans of our community Yuri needs no introduction. However, for those who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him over the years, Yuri has been pursuing web development for the better part of two decades. Yuri began working with ExpressionEngine v1.6 back in 2007 when ExpressionEngine’s Multiple Site Manager was the perfect solution for a set of websites he needed to build for a financial company. It must have been love at first site as he quickly began to dive deeper into add-on development for EE and soon after started intoEEtive.com.
Our community wouldn’t be the same without Yuri’s contribution over the years, including some of his more recognizable addons such as Threaded Comments, Protected Links, Social Login, Social Update, and Member Categories. In total, Yuri has over 100 addons in his portfolio ranging from simple to very complex.
Yuri lives in Ukraine with his wife and two sons (9 and 3yrs old). When he’s not working on EE Core, he enjoys woodworking and relaxing in his eco-built house.
“My aim is to make ExpressionEngine great. I hope that together with the team, we’ll be able to bring the system to a new level - more powerful, easier to use, and more prominent”
Yuri has had a great impact on our community over the years and we look forward to the excitement and skill he brings to our team and to ExpressionEngine.
