Hello World!

There’s nothing like starting a new year with a new job.

This is officially Day One on the job (I’m counting yesterday as Day Zero) as Yorba’s production engineer. I wear quite a few hats here: I sit on the front line of support and testing and also take care of the website, office matters and systems.

I am also the self-appointed director of happy hour.

I’ve known Adam for several years and it’s been very exciting to watch from the sidelines and see how Yorba has gone on build the most widely used photo manager on Ubuntu. It’s a real pleasure to be a part of the team and help contribute to these awesome products and the free desktop.

A little about me:

I’m a general purpose nerd. I’m an avid board game fan, I love pinball, can’t get enough of BSG and can solder a mean joint. San Francisco truly is a paradise for us geeks!

I dig communities. I’ve managed developer relations for software companies for the past several years and am BIG on making sure you guys and gals are having a good time with our products (or at least letting me know where it hurts).

So don’t be a stranger! I look forward to getting to know some of you, our users, in the coming weeks.

  1. Glad to hear that! My wish would be that the blog of shotwell would be updated a bit more frequently, mainly in respect of planned new features.

    1. You should expect to see some blog posts to this effect soon! Everyone is heads down preparing for our release of Shotwell 0.12. We’ve got some goodies for you coming up :)

  2. Since you maintain the website now you could update the Shotwell page to say Fedora 16 instead of 15 :)

    Enjoy your new post!

  3. Congrats! And I wish you will have a very productive year(s)!

    May I ask you (and Yorba in general), how do you monetize these kind of products and how you’re able to pay salaries for employees?
    I’m a huge fan of open source software and I wish to be able to run similar endeavor, but I don’t know how to bring funds with this.

    Thank you!
