Abner Coimbre started Handmade Network when rallying the Handmade Hero community around a common goal. Abner handles the legalities, financials, and public facing of Handmade Network. In particular, he recruits developers to host their projects, spreads the word through the Handmade Dev Show on Twitch, conducts interviews with well-known programmers, and finds new ways to grow the community. Abner began an internship at NASA in 2014 and received Kennedy Intern of the Year in 2015. He is now a co-op and currently works on the Mars launch control system as he studies computer science.

At 24, Ave is his first attempt to create a public commercial application.
