2017 Spring DEVELOPer of the Term

2017 Spring DEVELOPer of the Term

Congratulations to Austin Counts, selected as the Spring 2017 DEVELOPer of the Term! Austin was nominated by the Wise County and the Idaho Center Leads for his remarkable communication and collaboration skills. He worked on a multi-node, collaborative project and helped to ensure successful end results, even though participants were separated by two time zones and nearly 2,000 miles. He not only pre-emptively identified problems and solutions, but his hard-work ethic was contagious and motivated team members to accomplish project goals with little direction from project or node leadership. In essence, he embodied a leader's personality while still maintaining personable team relations.
