Get to Know the Avalon Team: Chris Syversen and Evviva Weinraub

In our series Get to Know the Avalon Team, we're providing a closer look at the individuals who are working each day to develop the Avalon Media System


Chris Syversen

Chris started working at Northwestern University Library in mid 2013 and began working on the Images/DIL project where he helped update the project, add in automated tests, and develop MENU. He previously worked as a consultant in the trading and financial industry, a startup, and a credit card processor. He's used many programming languages and frameworks and is really excited to contribute to an open source application that will be used in education. He'd be really excited to never do anything intense in PERL again.
