As many of you will know, Ross is going to be taking a 6 month sabbatical from MaidSafe, spending sometime travelling with his family. Much of Ross’ job involved working with the community to keep you updated with development updates, provide support, organise test feedback…etc… With his impending departure we needed someone to step in who is both familiar with our technology and the community ethos surrounding it.
I’m therefore pleased to announce that Francis Brunelle (@frabrunelle) will be joining the MaidSafe team. Francis will work remotely from just outside Montreal and will be focussed on many aspects of community/developer support including:
- Help manage the RFC process
- Monitor the forum and provide support where necessary
- Set-up new repos as and when required
- Assist in helping to manage community and developer documentation
- Organise and help organise meet ups
- Manage the Community Engagement Project
- Maintain the App Directory
Francis has proven himself over the last 2 years to be a committed and hardworking member of the community and I think he will be a great addition to the team. Welcome on board, Francis!
