AoP is driven by community, and our diverse network of friends is a fundamental part of the bedrock below it. Our friends are drawn from technical, creative and professional backgrounds, ranging from folks we regularly meet on the event circuit to people we make an effort to catch up with when we’re in their area. This page is a shout out to the amazing talent who help us deliver our services and a showcase of what lovely people we get to spend time with from time to time.
