Jukka 'Gocom' Svahn joins the Textpattern team

With great pleasure we may announce the latest addition to our team: Jukka ‘Gocom’ Svahn joins the Textpattern core developer team.

Jukka has been an avid volunteer contributor of bug fixes and new features during the development of the latest releases, develops a Textpattern staple with his ‘rah’ series of Textpattern plugins, and has attended the Textpattern community for quite literally years.

He’s on a mission to…

…upgrade the existing code base, make it consistent up to the styling, document it and make the core tools useable by 3rd-parties.

Tervetuloa Jukka!
