Andrea Campolonghi - Project Lead
Andrea Campolonghi lives and works as freelance web developer in Milan Italy. He is a technologist enthusiast and has been a CFML developer for 6 years. CFML has really changed his “developer life.” In the last years he focused his attention in the development of high traffic web applications with CMS backend and in the production of ajax based GUI. Andrea loves especially Object Oriented Programming and is awed by a well done software architecture.
Andrea leads the Railo Ajax project that was rolled into the core engine! As part of the volunteer team he would like to give the community a better way to promote and establish their projects that improve and extend the Railo Engine.

Andrew Mercer – Community Manager, AU
Andrew joins the Railo Team to continue his efforts to promote CFML in Australia and the rest of the APAC region. He brings close to 10 years of web development experience with him, 5 as a ColdFusion User Group Manager, and recently as a speaker as webDU and cf.Objective(ANZ).
Andrew is one of the many that believe for CFML to be widely adopted by the web development world there needs to be a free version – and that is how he discovered Railo. Impressed by its compatibility, performance and rapid response for the support team, he not only adopted it to run his own website and projects, but approached and helped many framework developers get their product running on Railo. These include ColdBox, MangoBlog and Farcry CFM.
Paul Klinkenberg - Extension Provider Manager
Paul Klinkenberg loves to program stuff. Ever since he was rescued from the dungeons of Perl, CFML has been his favoured language. Once introduced to the concept of opensource CFML, and Railo in particular, he even became fanatic! This great language will finally become famous, and get the attention it deserves, has been his hope ever since.
For the sake of mankind, and sometimes to the desperation of his wife Emma and daughter Luce (though Luce does not yet understand the concept of desperation), he is coding opensource CFML applications in his spare time, at projects like the Railo Log Analyzer, the Tomcat Virtualhost copier, and all kinds of other projects, found via his blog, which is called RailoDeveloper.com.
Paul joined the Railo team in 2010 as the voluntary Railo Extension Manager. In this function, he is responsible for making Railo extensions the best asset Railo has! He needs you, other people, and businesses, to get enthusiastic about creating and using extensions. Paul can also be found on Twitter.
Robert Zehnder - Railo Volunteer
Peter Boughton - Community Documentation Coordinator
Peter first encountered CFML in 2002 on a university placement. A couple of years later he finished uni and started a CFML development job, improving and maintaining a variety of CFML-based systems, whilst continuing to work on assorted CFML hobby projects in his spare time. In 2006, Peter encountered Railo and was immediately attracted to it, and the improvements it was bringing to CFML. In 2011 his attention and focus on open source CFML and personal projects intensified even further.
Peter is a supporter of free/libre software, and an advocate of usability, reminding people that computers are supposed to make things easier for humans - not the other way round! Outside of software development, he enjoys photography and digital graphics, and is a keen boulderer. You can find out more about Peter at his blog.
In 2011, Peter joined the Railo Team as Community Documentation Coordinator, responsible for improving the Railo documentation, and intends to help significantly raise both the quantity and quality of all the documentation.
