Things have been going well at Crowd Favorite, in fact we’ve been busy enough (slight understatement) that I’ve had the opportunity to bring on another great local developer: Mike Hostetler.
I met Mike a few years ago and we’ve kept in contact with semi-regular lunches ever since. I’m thrilled that we were both at a place where this move made good sense. Since Eric joined Crowd Favorite at the end of May, we’ve been fortunate to have a variety of interesting projects come our way; too many fun projects for Eric and I to handle on our own.
Here is a brief bio on Mike (also on the Crowd Favorite About page now):
Mike got hooked on computers after using a Tandy TRS-80 in the mid 1980’s. He earned his BS in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin and has been working with the Internet since 1998. Before joining Crowd Favorite, Mike was focused on conceiving new ways to bring web applications to embedded devices and crafting new methods of human-computer interaction.
Off hours, Mike loves spending time with his family and the outdoors, preferably enjoying both at once.

I knew it! Crowd Favorite is going to take over the world, one local developer at a time!
For so long it was just you, Alex, and now there are 3 CF’ers… Amazing. Congrats, guys.
Ooooh, a Badger. The important question in my mind is whether he follows Mike Eaves’s guys or not. Gotta love the Wisco hockey tradition, from Badger Bob forward.
But seriously: congratulations to Mike and to CF for taking off.
[…] evidenced by the recent quick growth of Crowd Favorite and lack of blog posts here due to busy-ness, things are going quite well […]
Yes, i know hin, too. Alex. 🙂
Congrats Mike! We met last fall at one of the Denver Drupal user groups. You tipped me off to XAMPP (thanks for that, by the way — it’s been invaluable as my dev tool). Alex is doing some awesome work and I can’t wait to see what’s next…
