Hello from your new Old Weather developer!
« on: February 16, 2015, 03:31:06 pm »
Hello everyone! :)

My name is Perry, and I've recently joined the Zooniverse team as a web developer, working on Old Weather full time for the next few months. My focus is going to be building a brand new user interface to handle a variety of new log formats whilst making it easier, faster, and more efficient to use.

I'll also start a new thread for you all to post any suggestions, ideas, things you like/dislike with the current system, etc.

I look forward to meeting all of you :D

Perry

Have fun. You'll find us friendly but about as easy to organise as a collection of cats but we do get there.

Hope you enjoy the challenge.

Welcome, Perry!  I'm sure we'll have plenty of ideas to share with you - and some of us may even agree with one another .... :D

Hi Perry! I'm Darren/DZM, Zooniverse's community builder.

I don't think we've met yet, but I'm sure that I'll see you around the Zooniverse and this forum.

I'll definitely be around to help you out with the suggestions and the new interface. I'll shoot you an email through Zooniverse channels. Nice to have you with us!!

We do have a bit of a shopping list here, Perry, although it's in stream-of-consciousness format  ;D

I was just going to say I thought Maikel was underestimating the number of ideas  :D

Hello, Perry. Good luck!
