Google Code-In 2012 Mentors
David joined the project as a high school sophomore in 2007 after joining the #PySoy IRC channel on Freenode. He didn't have a lot of knowledge but was interested in learning and helping where he could.
He started by compiling and packaging PySoy for Windows users, fixing Windows-related bugs, and working on our build system. He then started using Ubuntu and has since worked extensively on virtually every part of the engine's codebase including our Firefox plugin and migration to a "cloud" architecture.
Offline he's an avid cyclist and plays a fair number of console games, his favorite game is Portal.
He's now a freshman at British Columbia Institute of Technology.
Nikki is a professional web designer who's mentoring multimedia projects. While she doesn't have much technical experience with PySoy she knows most of our developers well and has a great deal of experience with the FOSS community overall.
She lives in New York City.
