Chris Davenport

I was born in Battlefield and grew up in Sundorne and I now live and work in the Battlefield area of Shrewsbury as a web developer.

For over 10 years I was a leader of the Joomla project, a global, international, free and open source software project, until stepping down in February 2017. Joomla is a web content management system that currently powers over 3% of all the world's websites. I have travelled extensively around the world to talk about Joomla and open source software.

My interests include open source software development and how we can use it in a "new economy" that supports equality, social justice and environmental sustainability at local, national and global levels. I'm also interested in science and mathematics and I occasionally run a moth trap in Lion Coppice.

A Growing Party

Anyone can be a Green Party person

Anyone can be a Green Party person. All you need is to care for the world near you.

We come from all over and don't have to agree about everything. Everyone's voice is heard no matter how old you are, whatever your sex and you don't have to have a beard, though some do.
