Kasper joins Rails core

Posted by dhh

It’s a privilege to welcome Kasper Timm Hansen to the Rails core team, and I’m not just saying that because he’s a fellow Dane, though it helps 🇩🇰! Kasper started contributing to Rails during the 2013 Summer of Code program where he worked on the new Loofah-backed sanitizer. It was a big job and Kasper aced it.

Since then he’s racked up almost seven hundred commits on a wide variety of projects and PRs. He’s helped countless contributors polish their pull requests to the point that their work can be committed to the framework.

He’s also continued making substantial, individual contributions, like the new partial collection caching scheme, wildcard template dependencies, and big improvements to the test runner.

He joins the core team as lucky #13 😎✨👏
