Welcome Rihards Gravis to the IOTA Foundation

IF Team Aug 16, 2018

Rihards Gravisis the lead developer of the Trinity desktop wallet and long standing member of the IOTA community. After graduating from The Vidzeme University of Applied Science she has been gaining development-related experience over the past 10 years. He started as a front-end developer and recently led the technical team of an award winning digital agency. For the past three years he was the technical co-founder of a web design communication platform. By creating this product he not only gained technical experience on cross-platform application development, but also a deeper understanding about all the small details that make a piece of software usable.  

What immediately fascinated and pulled me into IOTA, were the boundless possibilities and the enormous and almost incomprehensible magnitude of the Tangle. To understand it with a more visual sense I created one of the first Tangle live visualisers (which now offline, but is open sourced https://github.com/iota-community/tangle-visualiser) and many (http://iota.dance) more (http://fog.sh) IOTA experiments.

Rihards (aka @iota.dance) has been our secret weapon at IOTA. He has been diligently working behind the scenes to bring Trinity desktop to fruition. He also brings with him a wealth of UI, UX and community knowledge. Please give Rihards a warm welcome!
