Following on our earlier announcement, the Islandora Foundation would like to announce that Daniel Lamb will be our Technical Lead, starting August 1st. The Islandora Technical Lead is responsible for providing leadership, technical guidance, coordination, and support to the open source community in the interests of releasing ongoing enhancements and maintenance to Islandora.
Danny comes to us from discoverygarden, Inc, where he has spent the better part of four years working with Islandora. He is uniquely suited to taking on the role of Islandora’s Technical Lead as both a long-time committer to the Islandora 7.x-1.x project and the primary architect of Islandora CLAW. He is also an experienced presenter and Islandora Camp instructor, an official Committer on both Islandora teams, and has long been a leader in the Islandora community. We did a Meet Your Developer interview with Danny back in 2014 if you want to learn more about his background and his approach to development.
