Oh, so he jumped from the Gatsby team? :-) I remember him writing patently marketing articles on the Gatsby blog ("After all, Udemy named Gatsby the #1 emerging tech skill to learn. And Stack Overflow’s survey of nearly 65,000 developers found that Gatsby is one of the most loved and one of the most wanted web frameworks.")
At this point, Gatsby looks a very strange proposition. But the five-years-younger me swallowed it up, line, hook, and sinker, without question. In those early days, many thought it cool.
Wonder what WP Engine is hiring Node devs for.
