When we launched the Brackets open source project nearly one year ago, we set a few goals to measure the success of the project. We quickly exceeded our modest goal of 12 external contributors in the first year (currently approaching 70) but we hadn’t granted commit rights to anyone outside of the core team at Adobe. Today, we’re pleased to announce not one, but 5 new committers to the Brackets project!
In no particular order, we’d like to introduce the newest members of the Brackets core team:
Jonathan Diehl is a senior PhD Student in the HCI group at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) advised by Prof. Borchers. He is also a lecturer for iOS Application Development and Mobile Usability. His research focuses on exposing the runtime of software applications to support software prototyping and development. His main contributions to Brackets so far have been his work on the Live Preview, the Extension Manager extension, the Debugger extension, and a prototype for making Brackets work in the browser. You can find Jonathan on github.
Jon is a software architect at AboutWeb LLC with a passion for open source technology. He’s been described as having technology ADD but is currently in infatuated with NodeJS, AngularJS, Mongo, mobile apps, and of course Brackets. In addition to closing issues, Jon has created several extensions for Brackets. His latest extension provides live development support for theming Drupal sites. You can find him online at jrowny.com, @jrowny on twitter and GitHub.
