==Main developers==
 
 
 
Endless thanks from all of us goes to those who have contributed substantial and ongoing amounts of time to writing Moodle code and helping it grow. These are people who "get" what developing Moodle is all about and without whom Moodle would be a far lesser thing:
 
 
 
'''Eloy Lafuente (stronk7), Ray Kingdon, Williams Castillo, Petri Asikainen, Henrik Kaipe, Zbigniew Fiedorowicz, Gustav Delius, Thomas Robb, Janne Mikkonen, Jon Papaioannou (pj), Scott Elliott, Shane Elliott, Roberto Pinna (Bobo), Mike Churchward, Petr Škoda (skodak), Penny Leach, Martin Langhoff, Urs Hunkler, Michael Penney, Yu Zhang, Helen Foster, Tim Hunt, Sam Marshall, Jamie Pratt, Nicolas Connault'''
 
 
 
==Translators==
 
 
 
One of Moodle's strengths is the number of translations it has. Each translation takes many hours of work, as there are over 1000 phrases to translate (plus hundreds of help files!) Many of the languages have more than one contributor, sometimes working together and sometimes working serially.
 
 
 
'''[[Translation credits]]''' lists all these wonderful people.
 
 
 
The Translation Coordinator is Koen Roggemans ''translation AT moodle DOT org''.
 
 
 
==Themes==
 
 
 
Themes give Moodle sites some colour and life. Here are all the themes carried as part of the Moodle 1.5 distribution, along with their authors:
 
 
 
* '''standard''' by Martin Dougiamas
 
* '''orangewhite''' and '''orangewhitepda''' by Urs Hunkler [http://www.unodo.de/ unodo]
 
* '''oceanblue''' by Mitsuhiro Yoshida http://mitstek.com
 
* '''cornflower''' by Thomas Murdock http://sand-paper.org
 
* '''formal_white''' by Andrea Bicciolo
 
* '''metal''' by A. Chavan (updated for Moodle 1.5 by Martin Dougiamas)
 
* '''wood''' by Eloy Lafuente
 
 
 
Urs Hunkler is our Themes Manager, providing support and development.
 
 
 
==Supporting Organisations==
 
 
 
* '''Open University, UK''' - contributed to Roles, accessibility in 1.8, Quiz (ongoing) and many smaller things.
 
* '''Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italy (especially Daniele Cordella)''' - contributed to accessibility compliance to W3C guidelines and Italian law.
 
* '''Microsoft, US''' - contributed to development of [[Development:XMLDB Documentation|XMLDB]].
 
* '''Google, US (Summer of Code)''' - contributed to development of Admin interface, AJAX editing and Database activity presets
 
* '''Open Polytechnic, NZ (esp Richard Wyles)''' - for contributions to Moodle Network, Stats, PostgreSQL support, and many other things
 
 
 
(this list is not complete yet)
 
 
 
==Other contributors and developers==
 
 
 
Many other people have contributed (and are still contributing) with constructive discussions, support, testing and various chunks of code and documentation - see '''[[Community credits]]'''. The list is long and always changing, but some names from the beginning of the project include (in the order they were added):
 
 
 
'''Peter C. Taylor, Art Lader, Matt Hope, Tom Murdock, Sébastien Namèche, James Miller, Dustin Rue, Holger Schadeck, Giovanni Tummarello, John Windmueller, Sean Keogh, Mitsuhiro Yoshida, Greg Barnett, Mark Kimes, Mary Hunter, Russell Jungwirth, Przemyslaw Stencel, John "Captain" Eyre, Paula Edmiston, Howard Miller, Claudio Tavares, P. Timothy Ervin, Bob Calder, Ursula Raab, David Delgado, Mad Alex, Gaëtan Frenoy, Bernard Boucher, Bryan Williams, Rob Butner, Koen Roggemans, David Scotson, Torsten Anderson, Eamon Costello, Hannes Gassert, Andrew Walker, Antonio Vicent, Ethem Evlice, Chardelle Busch, Miles Berry, Steve Hyndman, Julian Ridden, Ray Lawrence, Jeffery Watkins, Teemu Sumi, Tony Hursh, Andrea Bicciolo, Ralf Hilgenstock, Stuart Mealor, Dan Stowell, Iñaki Arenaza, Bill Burgos, Jonathon Moore, Daryl Hawes, Richard Wyles'''
