Matt has been an awesome new contributor. He's mostly been concentrating on delivering workloads to Ubuntu, especially on POWER8. You can see the result of his work here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b03UR0hJeGg Thanks to him we also finally have a Tomcat development story for Ubuntu that actually works! An area for improvement I'd like to see is more involvement in your local Ubuntu community. +1 -- jorge 2014-09-17 14:29:05
Matt has been an excellent community ambassador. His work in the Charm Audit, Charm Review Queue, and assistance in IRC is an exemplary display of his craftsmanship, attention to detail, and level of care in having a great all around Juju experience. His drive to learn more about Ubuntu technologies is an inspiration. He receives my resounding thumbs up. -- lazypower 2014-09-04 13:58:10
Matt has been an excellent asset inside the Juju team. Interactions with him have always resulted in a successful piece of work, even though he n'acked many of my merge proposals! Going serious, Matt has done an awesome work inside the Juju community and I feel and believe his contributions are pretty much valuable for the Ubuntu Community as a whole. I can proudly say I've learnt a lot from you, mbruzek. Hope to see you as a Member soon! -- jose 2014-09-09 03:12:38
It sounds like Matt has been approved for a community member [congrats], but I still wanted to leave my +1/affirmation. I work with Matt on the Juju Solutions team. Matt is not only willing, but has a passion to help others get their problems resolved. You can commonly find Matt helping others in #juju, mailing lists, or AskUbuntu to get their worklolads deployed on Ubuntu. Matt ensures folks understand the solution and feel comfortable with the resolution thereby enabling them to help others with similar questions. In addition to Matt's technical contributions to the Ubuntu community working to deploy workloads Matt is patient, listens, and you if you have had the opportunity to join him in a G+ Hangoug (VUDS) you'll quickly note his kindness and Bruzek smile. A great addition to the Ubuntu community.
