[From the BoD] Chris Chandler Named Content Silverback
- PCGen's Board of Directors is happy to announce that, after a short
round of discussion and a unanimous vote of approval, Chris Chandler,
aka Barak, has accepted the position of Content Silverback.
Chris has been a member of the PCGen team since 2001, when he started
working on output sheets, eventually working his way into the position
of OS Silverback. As the OS Silverback he worked with the code and
data teams to create the then new (now old and familiar) "Weapon
Block" that displays all of the various ways you may use a weapon to
attack and all the proper attack numbers for doing so, saving an
immense amount of space on the output sheets. He also began dabbling
in dataset creation through this period.
When CMP was incorporated Chris began working for them on a contractor
basis doing output sheets and data sets. Chris eventually became their
content manager, first for the PCGen side and later responsibility for
the eTools data portion of their business was added. With his time at
a premium he stepped down as the OS SilverBack, feeling that he could
not contribute enough time to do the position the justice it deserved.
Since that time Chris has served as CMP Liason to the PCGen Board of
Directors and has assisted the data team with the design of new
functionality for PCGen.
Chris has also authored many of the LST File Classes currently
available in PCGen's Documentation.
The Content Silverback serves as the leader of the Content Team which
includes the Data, Documentation and Output Sheet sub-teams, and holds
a seat on PCGen's Board of Directors. The Content Silverback's
responsibilities include determining how the Content Team should be
run, the overall goals of the team, and how these goals in turn fit in
with the overall goals of the project.
PCGen Board of Directors
- Congratulations, Chris, and thanks a lot for all the effort you put into
this wonderful tool!
