Who's the team?

The team consists of volunteers, usually paid as part of their work, and CodeRefinery staff paid by NeIC. If you are an instructor for two workshops or otherwise consistently contribute to material or CodeRefinery organization, and occasionally come to our online meetings, please request to be added to the list above. Likewise, we remove people after they are inactive for a year.
