Chris Kelly is a GitHubber!

Our marketing and community efforts recently grew in strength and size with the addition of Chris Kelly to our team.

Chris got his start with computers in 1993, learning to write HTML and viewing his work in Lynx. From there he studied philosophy, attempted to modernize the publishing industry, and perhaps most importantly, worked at a company that printed Star Wars and Disney scenes...on window blinds. About the only thing he hasn't done is pioneer one of the 90's most important fashion trends. We'll try to forgive him.

Tal Niv is a GitHubber

GitHub is proud to welcome Tal Niv to its misfit Legal team. Tal is our open sourceress, IP wiz, and all-around agitator.

When not fomenting rebellion at work, Tal plays the harp, teaches intellectual property and cyberlaw, and thinks deep thoughts at 4 am. She is a former IDF lieutenant, start-up veteran, a spectacularly sub-par software engineer, and a Tel-Aviv-ian.

Tal prefers prime single origin Konga beans in her sixteen daily cups of coffee, and thinks that coffee filters are for children (and only very young ones, at that).

Welcome, Tal!

Easel is a GitHubber

We're super excited to announce that GitHub has acquired Easel.

easel

Matt Colyer and Ben Ogle started Easel because they weren’t satisfied with the workflow of designing for the web and believe that iterating on design should be straightforward and free of repetitive work. We could not agree more.

We're elated to now have Matt and Ben on the GitHub team!

For more on Easel, see the Easel blog post.
