Omar S. Navarro Leija
I am a 4th year PhD student at the University Of Pennsylvania. I am interested in systems programming, operating systems, and concurrency. I spend a lot of time thinking about programming, and I am lucky enough to get to program in Rust for my research projects! I also had the privilege to teach UPenn's Rust Programming class, and will be teaching it again Fall 2019!
Alan Somers has a background in embedded systems and operating systems. He contributed many patches to ZFS, but discovered that that file system could never take advantage of SMR hard drives. So he decided to write his own. He is also maintainer or co-maintainer of eleven other crates, plus the Rust
mock_shootout. When not working with Rust, he frequently commits to FreeBSD, and recently rewrote its
