Happy Cog is tickled to formally announce the addition of developer Allison Wagner to our team.
Allison has been a freelancer for Happy Cog since August of 2009. During this time, she’s shown us she means business, providing invaluable code and QA support for projects for a number of high profile Happy Cog clients. Aside from assisting us with markup and style, she is a ray of sunshine any working environment would be lucky to have. Allison will be working out of our Philadelphia office.
You can catch up with her on Twitter and say hi.
