Cory Webb is a senior full stack developer hailing from Waco, Texas, home of Dr. Pepper, Baylor University, and shiplap (that’s a reference to HGTV’s Fixer Upper for the uninitiated).
Before joining the team at Reaktiv, Cory ran a small web development company specializing in Joomla. He also did a brief stint as a senior technologist at Sears Holdings Corporation. His educational background is in engineering and business, but his true passion has been web development since he built his first web page as a freshman electrical engineering student at the University of Texas in 1997.
When he’s not busy manipulating 1’s and 0’s, you can usually find him spending time with his wife and 3 kids, traveling, watching movies, and serving at his local church.
The power of open source
I owe the last decade+ of my career to open source technology and to communities like Linux, PHP, WordPress, Joomla… the list goes on and on. Open source software has literally changed the world and my life, and I strive to contribute in whatever ways I can.
