Howdy Bugzilla Developers,
Per Bugzilla:Developers:Introduction on the wiki, here's my whack at the
Full name: Kip Hampton
IRC /nick: ubu
City: Los Angeles, CA, US
Profession: Rake and Roustabout
What do you want to help out with:
In the immediate term, there are a few items on the "Good Bugs For
N00bs" list that I'd like to knock down. In the longer term, to do
whatever I can to keep Bugzilla at the top of the go-to list for issue
tracking software. I'm generally a Perl + XML and RDF Guy so Buzilla
seems the most natural place to volunteer to the larger Mozilla effort.
What other technical projects have you worked on in the past?
10+ years in the Web/Web Services business, working with organizations
that cover the gambit from tiny 3-person teams to giant Fortune 100 Web
Depts. In terms of Open Source work, I'm an Apache Software Foundation
committer (and project management contact) on the AxKit project, I wrote
/XML Web Publishing With AxKit/ for O'Reilly, and, apart from AxKit, I
have several XML and RDF modules available on CPAN
What other skills do you have that might be applicable?
Given sufficient prep time, my Carne Asada brings eyesight to the blind
(sorry, vegans). More seriously, my DBA-fu is pretty strong (especially
on Postgres) and I've done tons of UI/design work as well.
So... I suppose that's an intro. If anyone has specific questions,
please don't hesitate.
