Dear DSpace community member,
The DSpace committers team are delighted to announce a new member to the group: Sands Fish from MIT.
Sands has been an active member of the DSpace community for some time, contributing patches, helping fix bugs, and to develop new features in the software.
Sands started programming in the early 80's when he discovered the Beginner's BASIC book that came with his TI-99/4a. He earned a degree in Computer Science from Assumption College and has worked on a wide range of software and projects, from embedded code in network analysis boxes, to RPG code for AS220 systems, to managing development groups in the start-up environment. Most recently, he has focused on web applications and services, specifically in the context of DSpace and the semantic web. He currently works as a software engineer for the MIT Libraries.
We are always on the lookout for new developers, contributors, and committers within the DSpace community. Anyone who would like to get more involved is encouraged to do so. You're also welcome to contact us at any time if you'd like ideas of how to start contributing:
Contributions can take many forms, from writing code to editing documentation, or testing new releases or designing new themes for our user interfaces.
(on behalf of the DSpace committers group)
