Welcome Devin Smith, new part-time Application Programmer on the PAD team
We are delighted to announce that Devin Smith has joined the Publishing, Archives, and Digitization group as a part-time Application Programmer, starting today, May 16, 2022. Devin will be working closely with the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory on Open Access and OSTI reporting related projects. Devin will be part of a team that is responsible for the design and maintenance of a diverse portfolio of web-based applications and services that support the publishing, research, and learning activities of UC faculty, students, staff, and the general public. Working with product managers, the tech lead, other developers, and campus partners, Devin will assess and implement external tools and platforms, develop new features for existing services, analyze and fix bugs that occur on production systems, and take ownership of the operations for specific components of our systems. He will report to Mahjabeen Yucekul.
Devin arrives at CDL from an eclectic career involving commercial music, tech, and writing/editing. He spent several years with the karaoke app company Smule, leading a team of content creators and helping to design specs. He’s been working with the Prelinger Library since 2017, as a host and developer of their idiosyncratic discovery service, the Stacks Explorer.
Outside of work, he continues to record music, develop creative tools, and has been training for a 70.3 triathlon in early May. He has a lovely tortie housecat named Joan.
Please join us in welcoming Devin to the PAD team!
