Jonathan M. Hethey

Jonathan M. Hethey has been writing code since the age of 14 and has actively participated in shaping and experimenting with the IT systems around him. After finishing his finals and an apprenticeship as an IT supporter, he studied Multimedia Design in Kolding, Denmark, followed by studies of Web Development in Odense, Denmark. Besides his studies, he has been working on several web projects—both on a freelance basis and in his company which was founded in 2011. Because programming and working in teams efficiently are keys to success in a rapidly changing industry, whether we are speaking of app development or creating beautiful web experiences, he quickly became a fan of Git, and started looking for great implementations of it on the server-side that would allow newcomers to pick it up quicker and extend it with additional functionality and usability.
