Expanding The DEV Core Team!

We are so excited to officially welcome two new software engineers to the DEV core team: Anna (@lightalloy) and @rhymes.

Anna was one of our earliest DEV members (her user id # is lower than 1000!). She has actually been working with us for a few months now. She's been a major contributor to the code base and has led some serious refactoring campaigns. You can read more about Anna here:

Our newest team member is Rhymes -- who probably doesn't even need an intro! Rhymes has been a prolific contributor to both the platform and codebase. We used to dream about Rhymes joining the team and we're so happy that it’s become a reality. You can learn more about Rhymes here:

The DEV Team is almost 20% located outside of the US now :)

Happy Coding!

Congrats to both! I knew about Anna but didn't expect @rhymes to also join the team. I have been following their contributions on Github and they are amazing, I expect great things to happen here in the future!

Wow, if this was mentioned to me before it totally flew over my head.

I knew Anna was a longtime member, but I had no idea just how longterm. Sooo cool!
