I'd like to welcome Britta Weber ("brwe") to our team (long overdue...). Britta is almost done with her PhD in computer science, developing Machine Learning algorithms to process electron microscopy image data.
She has already contributed to elasticsearch the new Term Vector API implementation, and a wonderful new Function Score query (including support for built in decaying functions). With someone as smart as Britta, I'm excited about what she can contribute to our company and product.
p.s. we are hiring.
