Hi!

My name is Oliver Charles and I've been interested in MusicBrainz since the start of 2006. Around April 2007 I'd entered about 600 edits into the database, and decided to start also taking in interest in the development in MB. On this page you can find out some of the stuff I've done. I worked with MusicBrainz through Google's Summer of Code program in 2008, and am now employed as one of the developers.

Contributions

  • PicardScreencasts: I recorded a few screencasts for new users to Picard
