Subject: [Foundation-l] Announcement: Priyanka Dhanda joins Wikimedia
To: Wikimedia developers <wikitech-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>rg>, Wikimedia
Foundation Mailing List <foundation-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
I'm very pleased to welcome Priyanka Dhanda to the Wikimedia
Foundation as Code Maintenance Engineer. Priyanka joins us from
SourceForge Inc., where she worked since 2002 as a software developer
and also was involved in operations, working on most pieces of the
infrastructure, and integrating third party software with the
SourceForge platform (including MediaWiki). Priyanka holds a Master's
Degree in Computer Science from the University of Toledo, Ohio, and a
Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering from the
Pondicherry Engineering College in India.
She is starting today and will work in the San Francisco office.
Priyanka will be a key interface between software developers and the
operations team, helping us to catch up with our code and bug review
backlog, to mentor new developers, to push projects to completion, and
to improve testing and automation. Please don't swamp her immediately
with requests as she'll need some time to get more deeply oriented in
the MediaWiki codebase. :-) You'll be seeing her in the IRC channels,
on SVN, Code Review, BugZilla, wikitech-l, and so forth.
Please join me in welcoming Priyanka to the Wikimedia team! :-)
