Coda and Odyssey are the work of many people,
spanning many years. The contributors are listed below in alphabetic order,
together with the dates they were affiliated with the project. Associated
with each person is a brief list of specific things they have contributed.
Note that this list is incomplete in almost every case. Many people have
done things for the project that aren't specifically mentioned here. For
example, helping track down difficult bugs, dealing with hardware problems,
helping to restore server state after a major clobber, and so on.
This is the most recent picture of the group, taken in February 2000:
Back row: Jan Harkes, Adrian Pavlykevych, Mahadev Satyanarayanan
(Satya), Peter Braam, Dushyanth Narayanan, Phil Nelson
Front row: Tracy Farbacher, Jason Flinn, Shafeeq Sinnamohideen
Here are some other pictures of the group over time: January
1998 , March 1996 , April
1995 (note the Coda t-shirts!).
Here are some pictures taken in Fall 99 when Jay, Chris, David and Brian stopped
by Satya's house after attending James Landay's wedding: with
Deborah , also with Deborah
, with Satya , another
with Satya .
Here's another bunch taken in April 2000 in San Jose, CA at a get together
with Jay, Puneet, Lu, Hugo, Clement and some of their families: making
a mouse for the kids, the whole
group, another of the whole group.
