I'm happy to announce the newest addition to the GitHub team, Nick Hengeveld. Nick introduced me to a little version control system called Git back in 2005. His first commit to the Git codebase was in September of that year - about 5 months after Linus started it.

Nick also has his assistants, Fezzik and Maverick, on hand at all times to help out with really difficult problems here at GitHub.

Please help welcome Nick and his assistants into the GitHub fold. You can find him on GitHub and Twitter.
