Letha: Talk about wearing many hats, Letha is our writer, user experience designer, business manager, and gigantic horse specialist here at Bits and Fields. She has over 15 years of experience in the software industry making consumer-facing web sites, software for homes and businesses, and award-winning documentation. Letha has a Percheron, Moonie, whose goal in life is to prove that draft horses are not the calm and quiet beasts they’re reputed to be. Her retired show horse, Cosmo, is currently trying to break the world record in grass consumption. Letha’s three dogs are her loyal and snoring office mates.
J.J.: Every organization has its gurus. Ours is J.J. He proves again and again that nothing is impossible on the internet. Our chief architect and technologist, J.J. makes sure that we’re making smart decisions from the ground up, which means our websites are always flexible, reliable, and scalable. When J.J. isn’t breaking boundaries in Rails programming or patiently explaining strange CSS nuances to Letha, he’s likely to be found playing guitar or trying to convince the world that the television show The A Team is art.
Various designers, photographers, coders, and testers: It takes a village to raise a website. Well, not always. But sometimes we need help! Thankfully we have friends we’ve worked with over the years who are able to step in and help us in a crunch. If you’re interested in helping us out on a freelance basis, we’d love to talk with you. Just contact us and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Where our name comes from: The words “bit” and “field” both have different meanings in the horse world and the computer world. A bit is either a device for steering and stopping a riding horse, or it’s a tiny piece of information on a computer. A field can be a pasture with happy horses grazing, or else an item in a software tool or a web page, such as a button or text box.Share
