Jeez! It’s been a year already! A year working at Intersec… Time goes by so quickly! A year ago, I was thinking about giving up the idea of appending “PhD” to my name: I quit the graduate program I was in after only 10 months. Before that I had been working for a year at this other company called… wait! Was it Intersec already? Oh my God! It was!
The goal had been set a day or two prior to the beginning of the hackathon: we were hoping to make Gerrit better at recommending relevant reviewers for a given commit. To those who haven’t heard of it, Gerrit is a web-based code review system. It is a nifty Google-backed open-source project evolving amid an active community of users. We have been using this product here at Intersec since 2011 and some famous software projects also rely heavily on it for their development process.
Our team consisted of five people: Kamal, Romain, Thomas, Louis and Romain (myself).
