A few weeks ago we announced that we would be looking for committed contributors for 8+ weeks on Perfherder. We have found a few great individuals, all of whom show a lot of potential and make a great team.
They are becoming familiar with the code base and are already making a dent in the initial list of work set aside. Let me introduce them (alphabetical order by nicks):
akhileshpillai – Akhilesh has jumped right in and started fixing bugs in Perfherder. He is new to Mozilla and will fit right in. With how fast he has come up to speed, we are looking forward to what he will be delivering in the coming weeks. We have a lot of UI workflow as well as backend data refactoring work on our list, all of which he will be a great contributor towards.
mikeling – mikeling has been around Mozilla for roughly two years, recently he started out helping with a few projects on the A*Team. He is very detailed oriented, easy to work with and is willing to tackle big things.
theterabyte – Tushar is excited about this program as an opportunity to grow his skills as a python developer and experiencing how software is built outside of a classroom. Tushar will get a chance to grow his UI skills on Perfherder by making the graphs and compare view more polished and complete, while helping out with an interface for the alerts.
Perfherder will soon become the primary dashboard for all our performance needs.
I am looking forward to the ideas and solutions these new team members bring to the table. Please join me in welcoming them!
