… 7 old friends officially on board. Indeed it has been a couple of months, but as they say, better late than never. So we’d like to formally introduce you to our latest additions to the team:

Mike Becker – NRPE for Icinga Development & Improvement
Mike has been playing round with Icinga since the first release and has been with us since September 2010. Technical Support Engineer at PlusServer AG, he’s no stranger to Nagios and monitoring in practice.

Ronny Fauth – IDOUtils
Ronny too has been working with Icinga since version 1.0, and has been on the team since August last year. His day job as Oracle/MySQL/MSSQL Database Administrator at DB Systel makes him a fine contributor to our Core & IDOUtils team.

Lars Engels – Core & Packaging
Oracle Solaris and FreeBSD user, Lars helps us out our where he knows best – in keeping Icinga portable and running on non Linux platforms. He’s been on board since October 2010.

Mike Dupont – Core
Founder of FLOSSK, a free and open source software community in Kosovo, Mike helps Icinga with debugging, documentation, enhanced testing and development. With over 12 years experience in C, C++ and Perl, he’s been with us since February 2011.

Thomas Dressler – IDOUtils Oracle
As an Oracle database administrator for over 20 years, Thomas has much experience in database operations with RHEL-Linux and Solaris,  plus internal database monitoring and automation. So he’s felt at home on our IDOUtils team since he joined in March 2011.

Matthew Brooks – Core
Hailing from Northern California, Matthew is an IT consultant with a passion for our Classic UI/CGIs. From submitting his first patch as early as October 2009, he joined the team in May 2011 and developed our new tactical header introduced in v1.4.

Amanda Mailer – Marketing & Community
Contributing to the website, blog and marketing, Amanda is already known for her Icinga webcasts on Youtube. She is a longstanding Icinga fan and helper who officially came on board in May 2011 to help out more with our media and event opportunities.

So a big belated welcome and thank you to these guys for committing to the coolest open source monitoring tool around! Our doors are always open, so feel free to contact us if you’d like to join too.
