My name is Menno Finlay-Smits and I start today as the Lead Developer and Project Manager for the Cacophony Project. We've got a real chance at solving the problem of invasive predators in New Zealand and I'm really excited to be part of the effort.
My role has three major aspects:
1. Providing technical leadership and direction, especially in terms of the software parts of the project.
2. Working with the rest of the team to develop and implement the field and server-side systems.
3. Encourage and coordinate external contributions of all kinds. The project is completely open and anyone is able to contribute. Look out for suggestions of how to contribute to the project on the website soon. I've already been getting up to speed with Grant and Cam over the last few weeks and am hitting the ground running today. I look forward to getting to know our key partners and contributors soon.
