Hi everyone,

it is with great pleasure that Daniel and I would like to announce that 
Giuseppe Lavagetto is joining the TechCom. Giuseppe works in the  Technical 
Operations team, which is responsible for the reliability, availability and 
performance of the WMF infrastructure. Within the team, he  works on a great 
deal of different problems, but mostly focuses on the MediaWiki  and the other 
services that constitute our application layer, and on automation of the 
infrastructure. He has been involved in the work to transition our 
infrastructure to use HHVM, and has put a lot of effort in our project to serve 
our application layer from multiple datacenters.  He is also  one of the early 
advocates for our current effort to use Kubernetes and containers for our 
services layer. We are very excited to have him join the TechCom where he will  
have even more impact on our mission. Welcome Giuseppe!

Warm regards,

Victoria & Daniel
