Since a few weeks ago, Aslak Knutsen (GitHub, Twitter) has joined the HyperKitty developers team and contributed a few pull requests already!

Aslak is a developer working at Red Hat on the Arquillian project, a testing framework for JBoss applications. He has already improved the HyperKitty REST API and built a very nice interface above it to integrate with his project. Check out his video:

He’s also squashed a few bugs and improved the speed of some database operations. A very good start!

Welcome Aslak, we’re very happy to count you in!

HyperKitty is still marching forward, and there’s been quite a few improvements since the last time I blogged about it (a.k.a the Pleistocene). I’m keeping our development server current, have a look at it if you’re interested!
