LizardTech’s Matt Fleagle leads the editorial efforts for the blog, with many staffers regularly supplying content.

“LizardTech has been around for 15 years, something most people don’t realize,” said Matt Fleagle, LizardTech’s technical writer and Zoom editor. “We began as a small software company with a commitment to our customers.
