Welcoming Akshat Tiwari to the MetaBrainz team!
I’m pleased to announce that we are continuing our long tradition of hiring our best Google Summer of Code participants — I’d like to warmly welcome Akshat Tiwari to the MetaBrainz team!
Akshat has been working on our Android App, continuing the work from last summer to improve the app and to add new features. He has been doing great work and demonstrating the fact that he understands user interfaces and has an eye for design as well as coding. This is a rare combination of talents and since we’ve been in dire need for improving the UI/UX for the MusicBrainz web site since forever, this was the time to finally get this project moving seriously.
Akshat has joined us on a trial contract through the end of the year with the goal of creating a new home page for MusicBrainz (and more hopefully) — the current home page is still stuck in the early 2000s and hasn’t evolved as our projects have evolved.
Our hope is to have Akshat become a permanent member of the MusicBrainz team and once the home page is completed, that he will continue on the UI/UX revamp that Chhavi started several years ago.
Welcome to the team Akshat!
