Lilith Lysistrata, Information Management

When Lilith heard that I was having trouble with a giant Excel file, she offered to help me work with the data in Access, which I wasn’t very skilled at. Lilith patiently showed me how to build all the tables and queries, and answered follow-up questions by email. She saved me hours – if not days – of time and frustration, and I’ve already used the skills she taught me to work with similar files for another project. Thanks Lilith!

Tuan Vo, Louis Tam and Nick Lam, Information Management

I want to specially commend Tuan Vo, Louis Tam and Nick Lam, for the work they did to undertake and complete the Public Records database, application and file storage migration, which came to completion Wednesday this week. This was a very clean and smooth process and the team operated as a well-oiled machine.

Jenny Acevedo-Barga, Judah Altaras, Ryan Grant and Ryan Hagg, Information Management

MAJOR kudos to Jenny, Judah, Ryan G and Ryan H for their most excellent work on More Purple. The microsite was beautiful, the ticker was so much fun to watch, and they busted out an entirely new capability to track individual school’s matching challenges. Beyond that, Jenny went above and beyond helping finalize the More Purple logo, create graphics, facebook cover photos and avatars. You all are so fantastic to work with, we can’t thank you enough!
