An Interview with Wade Warren
Wade Warren is a central figure when it comes to…well, the internet.
Over 30 years in the technology world he's been a part of 4 IPOs, more than 20 mergers and acquisitions, involved in the creation of what became the Apache webserver at Organic, kicking ass at LoudCloud building the foundation for OpsWare, scaling the infrastructure at Netflix to a massive percentage of all broadband usage, heading operations at VeriSign, and now at Wikia, where he serves as the Vice President of Platform Engineering.
His confidence in the benefits and bright future of the new stack of modern static web tech has led to Wikia both using Netlify, and co-sponsoring the Static Web Tech Meetup with Netlify. At a recent meetup (where we got to be in the room for the launch of Jekyll 3.0!!) Wade took some time to talk to us about the role of static web technology in Wikia's world.
The Static Web Tech Meetup is a monthly gathering of developers and tech forward-thinkers who want to learn and share their insight about the technology that will power tomorrow's internet. Join us at our next event by connecting with us on Meetup!
