Georgios KOLOVENTZOS CERN, Geneva - Switzerland
  I am currently a fellow at IT-PES-IS. I am working with the Version Control Systems of CERN. In my job I have to maintain 3 clusters of machines. To accomplish this I have expertise in bash, perl and python scripting languages. Moreover as we have some web servers my knowledge of html, css and php came handy for such jobs. As a technical student I have widen my knowledge in the apache web server introducing a new load balancing scheme for our machines. With so many services in order not to lose anything we have also some databases. So we are expertized in SQL in various backends as MySQL, ORACLE and sqlite.  I have a B.Sc in Informatics from the University of Athens.

In 2010, I became a student at the Mälardalen University, Västerås, Sweden and I have recently graduated with a Master degree in Software Engineering there. During my stay at CERN I am part of the ID-CIS department working on Invenio digital library software infrastructure, notably (i) the database configuration manager and the use of SQLAlchemy for DB independence (MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, Oracle); (ii) help with the migration of Invenio's web framework to Flask/Werkzeug/Jinja platform.
Jan Ǻge LAVIK CERN, Geneva - Switzerland
  I am currently working as a developer and system administrator for the CERN library, focusing on digital library systems such as CERN Document Server and INSPIRE-HEP - the one stop shop for scientific articles in high-energy physics. Also I am involved on the technical implementation and monitoring of the ingestion of content from various sources such as scientific publishers and online repositories. Both systems are built on top of CERN's in-house digital library software Invenio, which is based on the LAMP stack, using Python as the main programming language. In addition to LAMP and Python, I’m familiar with C/C++, Java, MySQL and web technologies such as PHP, JavaScript/jQuery and CSS. I work mostly on the GNU/Linux platform.
Claudia LAZZARO INFN, Padova - Italy
  I studied physics at University of Padova obtaining the master degree in 2006; I took the PhD at ETH (Zurich), involved in the OPERA experiment, working on the software to reconstruct the events. I am currently a post-doc at INFN (Padova) involved in the RareNoise project, to develop the software of analysis data. The project is devoted to the study of non-equilibrium fluctuations in macroscopic systems. The experimental data are analysed using software implemented mainly in C++ language, as standalone program, using the ROOT library. I mainly develop software in C++ languages, and in Linux operating systems.

Petya PETROVA CERN, Geneva - Switzerland
  I am in my last year as a bachelor student in ¨Computer Science¨ at Plovdiv University Paisii Hilendarski¨, Bulgaria. Currently, I am a technical student at CERN and my main project here is to do data migration between two bug-tracking systems. In particular, I have to develop a data importer plugin. So that Savannah project, which has been widely used at CERN until recently, would be replaced by another one - JIRA. In the process of the transition between the two databases I learn a lot about SQL and Java as well as how to handle the occurred problems quickly and efficiently. The experience I gain, while doing the project, helps me a lot in writing my thesis.
