David Lippman

David is faculty at Pierce College and developer of Internet Math Assessment System. He came down to Houston to talk about assessment systems and spent a day sprinting with us on how to edit structured documents. He worked on TinyMCE with Roché and experimented with plugins to allow element extensions to create simple tools for building CNXML/HTML5 semantic markup in TinyMCE. They managed to get an exercise plugin working, and he later added a “section” tag plugin.

Manpreet Kaur

Manpreet is a User Experience expert and former Connexions UI Manager. She helped out at the sprint with a new design for advanced features (coming soon) and with a more usable workflow for creating new versions of modules.

Chuck Bearden

Chuck is an XML guru and former Connexions employee who still contributes at sprints and occasionally on special projects. He did some sprint day XSLT fixes to allow authors to include fancier semantic features even while using Word/OpenOffice/GoogleDocs. (They were breaking the importer before the sprint). He also did some work creating unit tests.

Ying Jin

Ying joined us for the Connexions 2012 sprints and contributed code on the Google Docs CSS import fixes and better failure handling. She has experience with DSpace, Fedora and EPrints so we are hoping to lure her into adding more repositories to the list of places to publish from the importer.
