The CKAN Tech Team is happy to officially welcome its two newest members: Brett Jones (@kowh-ai) and Patricio del Boca (@pdelboca). They have both been involved in the maintenance of CKAN for a long time and have made valuable contributions across different areas.

Brett is a DevOps Engineer and CKAN Contributor at Link Digital. Now based in Berlin, Brett has spent the last 29 years working a number of varying roles with the most recent focus on container technologies, build automation, bespoke toolsmithing, application performance monitoring and data engineering. In the last 2+ years he has been regularly involved in the CKAN community and made a number of contributions to CKAN, mainly in the DevOps area.

Patricio is an Information Systems Engineer working as a Senior Software Developer at the Open Knowledge Foundation. He is an Open Data and Civic Technology enthusiast and a proud member of Open Data Córdoba. He enjoys working on Civic Tech projects and data analysis and is a big fan of the Open Data movement, as well as an amateur photographer.

While welcoming new faces, we also say good bye to David Read (@davidread) and Tyler Kennedy (@tktech), who after many years contributing to the CKAN project, have moved on to other endeavors. We wish them luck in their new adventures!
