Welcome, Joey

It seems I’ve been remiss in welcoming a new hire to my subgroup of Mozilla Release Engineering.

Joey Armstrong is a Makefile whiz, and he’s going to be taking a stab at improving turnaround time on incremental builds and generally simplifying our Makefile story. John rightly gave up waiting for me to blog about Joey starting, and has written a post of his own explaining in more depth why Joey’s work is important. I’ll just add that we’ve done a lot of work recently in RelEng trying to identify long poles in our current build/test process. This effort has largely focused on re-assorting jobs and using hardware in smarter ways. It is awesome to have someone on the team now who is specifically tasked with trying to shorten the build process itself.

So…welcome, Joey!
