Luke Leber Programmer/Analyst III

I am a strong proponent of open source, web accessibility, and security.  I believe that elegance can be achieved through simplicity, that a unified strategy forms the most durable foundation for any project, and that open collaboration serves as the most effective way to harden applications.

I am currently employed by the Pennsylvania State University as a Programmer/Analyst Level III.  Most notably, I am part of the team that manages the Penn State World Campus family of websites.  I am also an active contributor to the Drupal content management system.
