Melanie MillandOpenSimulator Core Developer
As an OpenSimulator Core Developer, Melanie has been one of the most active contributors to virtual world software in general, and OpenSimulator in particular. As her avatar "Melanie Milland", she was a long-time Second Life™ resident and gained much experience in using virtual worlds. Melanie has been involved in a number of virtual world projects including creating, with a team of up to 12 developers, her own "spin" of the OpenSimulator software which powered the Avination Grid. Much of the grid's code, when shared back to the core code, was the base for many of the new OpenSimulator 0.9 update features.
