Jesse Nickles (Lead Developer)

Jesse is the founder of the SlickStack open source project and the main contributor of technical code, patches, and new features. The history of SlickStack is directly connected to his web hosting service, LittleBizzy, which was started in response to the lack of portable, single-site-per-server web hosting services in the WordPress community.

These days there are several premium server deployment services available, but none of them are open source or portable.

His passions include free speech, FOSS software, and the open web, and he dedicates his time and efforts to projects like SlickStack (and other online directories and review sites) that aim to fight censorship and cronyism, and support small businesses and individual voices on the internet.
