About the reviewers

Dave Myburgh has been involved with computers even before the Web existed. He studied to be a molecular biologist, but discovered that he liked working with computers more than bacteria. He had his own computer business in South Africa (where he grew up), which involved technical support and sales. He even created a few static web sites for clients during that time.

He went back to science for a few years when he first came to Canada, and then got sucked into the world of Drupal when a friend wanted a site for a local historical society. Since then, he has once again started his own company that now builds web sites exclusively in Drupal (he doesn't "do static" anymore). There is no lack of work in the Drupal world, and he now balances his time between work and family. He has also reviewed several Drupal books, including Drupal 5 Themes and Drupal 6 Themes.

Paul Lovvik is a Principal Engineer at Acquia and a contributor of Drupal. He received his B.S. in Computer Science from California State University. He has spent the last 15 years developing software at various technology companies, including Parallax Graphics, Sun Microsystems, and Openwave Systems. He has experience with developing in C, C++, Java, JavaScript, and PHP.
