New co-maintainer, Alain — thanks 2017 sponsors

WP-CLI welcomes its second maintainer, thanks to the support of our 2017 sponsors.

New co-maintainer: Alain Schlesser

First, I’d like to formally welcome Alain Schlesser as WP-CLI’s newest co-maintainer. If you’ve been following the project over the last month, you may have noticed him diving deep into WP-CLI’s internals. We’re excited about the infrastructural improvements coming in the next release, and the new features they’ll enable.

Alain is new to the WordPress community, and brings years of experience developing for other platforms, from hobby game development to large enterprise projects in a government environment.

I’m wildly excited about the opportunity to join Daniel and work on WP-CLI. This project represents a special facet of the WordPress ecosystem and comes with a unique set of requirements and challenges. I can’t wait to explore the possibilities!
— Alain

With Alain joining the project as a co-maintainer, the WP-CLI project is restoring capacity to meet current demands (e.g. support), and ramping up on new feature development and evangelization. We’ve already improved the build time by 33%!

Come say hello to Alain at our new office hours every Tuesday. Office hours start tomorrow, Tuesday, April 4 at 16:00 UTC

Thanks 2017 sponsors

Maintaining an open source project requires a substantial, ongoing commitment of time and energy. WP-CLI is a dependable tool loved by thousands because it’s actively maintained, which is made possible by the generosity of its sponsors.
