Thanks Chris!

I'm extremely excited and honored to join the ranks of
the IPMC. I will do my best to measure up to the high
standard that the project has been known for.

As for myself, I'm a software engineer who's been lucky
enough to be involved in open source projects for
pretty much all of my career. I grew up with UNIX
(later Plan9) and for 11 years I was a happy
hacker at Sun microsystems working on quite a few
different projects (C++ compilers, development tools,
DTrace tools, cloud storage -- you name it!).

Nowadays, I like my software extreme -- it either has
to be huge and intimidating (like Hadoop) or small
and beautiful (like Lua). And if you believe this divide
can be bridged then we'd love to see you in Apache
Bigtop ;-)

I'm originally from St.Petersburg, Russia but these days
you can find me on the other side of the globe in
Silicon Valley (I'm currently employed by Cloudera Inc)
mulling about at various Meetups and Board game events.


P.S. And the most crucial bit of info: I use vim, 4 space
tabs and mutt.
