For the month of December, we’re showcasing Keith Pierce, a man of many talents, who has contributed to Mifos in all capacities.  This time, we’re recognizing him for his Drupal expertise.  Keith has been maintaining the face of Mifos, keeping our mifos.org and mifos.com sites running smoothly and securely.

Each month we honor one of our top volunteer contributors from around the world.  This time around we’re recognizing Keith Pierce.  Keith, father-in-law to our very own Adam Monsen is a former volunteer, contract, and full-time developer for Mifos.  Now he’s volunteering his time to help us in maintaining our websites built on Drupal.  In only a couple months time, he’s helped implement a solid and secure development workflow, fixed bugs on the sites, and built out functionality to make the sites more usable for the community.  Keith’s continued commitment to Mifos shows that there are many ways you can get involved.

Star Contributor of the Month – Translatewiki.net Community

Translatewiki.net

For the months of October and November, we’re showcasing the Translatewiki.net Community, who’ve supplied us a robust new infrastructure for translating Mifos and an active community of translators to maintain and extend the languages Mifos is available in.

Each month we honor one of our top volunteer contributors from around the world.  This time around we’re doing a group recognition for several key members of the Translatewiki.net community. Transitioning the Mifos user interface to FreeMarker pages meant we needed to re-translate our entire software.  This could have been a nightmare but it’s been a blessing. Making the switch from Pootle to Translatewiki.net, we’ve benefited from a stable and actively maintained translation infrastructure that smoothly syncs with our Git repository.  Coupled with an enthusiastic community of translators, we’ve been able to maintain our existing Spanish, French, Chinese, and Portuguese translations with the new UI framework and are beginning to translate Mifos into languages like Bengali, Tagalog, Telugu, Tamil, and more.
