It's corny to say Apple, but there you have it. I've also got a lot of time for Varien/Magento, they really raised the bar on open source PHP and whilst its _far_ from perfect I've grown enormously from trawling through that code base.
General all round web person but if given the choice would spend more time coding backends and less time fixing f*$%ing style sheets.
Having a meetup that touches on Front End, Back End and Operations is a great idea!
