The byte5 core team

Founder

Christian

Christian Wendler founded byte5 in May 2004, though he has been an entrepreneur since 1996 – he never did something else and will probably never do. He is always very keen for new ideas and passionately works on the companies’ strategy.

Dennis

Dennis Zille has been part of the byte5 developer team since June 2015. Even before day one of his work, he rushed into Umbraco topics. And for sure, for him now, it's not an option to become an Umbracian, when he attended Umbraco CodeGarden during his second week at byte5. 

As an ASP.NET and AngularJS specialist he started some of his first projects on his own. And as a byte5 dev team member he finished the certification course as an Umbraco Certified Developer with 10/10.
