Another brave horseman steps up

I am pleased to announce another horseman joining the ranks in my Community team at Canonical. This time it is Jorge Castro, also known as whiprush to his friends. Jorge is coming on board as the External Projects Developer Liaison. He starts on Monday, which is my birthday, rather conveniently. :)

Jorge will be working with upstream projects (read projects that are available in Ubuntu) and downstream projects (read Ubuntu derivatives) to help make their work with Ubuntu as smooth and productive as possible. I am looking forward to Jorge getting in the saddle and kicking arse with Daniel and myself. Interestingly, Daniel does DnB, Jorge plays bass and I am now playing drums in Seraphidian – we are 33% of the way to an Open Source equivilent of Slipknot… :P

Welcome to the rollercoaster, Jorge… :)

    Congratulations Jono on a good decision. Jorge is an all-’round great guy and will definitely be a great asset to Canonical and the open source community!

    Cheers,

    Jorge ya era hora!

    I have missed his comments and participation… Looking forward to 2 things:

    Reading his blog at the planet (he will post, right?) and maybe packaging iFolder?

    Cheers mate!
