Hi everybody,

With this message, I'd like to congratulate our newest employee Pieter for
doing a PowerDNS release on his first day of work!

Even though the trains failed massively this morning in The Netherlands, it
all worked out.

Welcome to the team Pieter!

We introduced him in our recent blogpost http://blog.powerdns.com/2015/02/12/new-powerdns-employee-the-importance-of-testing-rcs-skipping-3-7-0-world-hosting-days-2015/

"Pieter wrote a paper and software on DANE under our mentorship while at the
OS3 program at the University of Amsterdam, and later did an amazing job
converting our documentation to the splendor you can now find on
http://doc.powerdns.com/ Based on this work, we offered Pieter a job and
we’re very happy he accepted!

Pieter (not to be confused with existing employee Peter) will focus on
helping customers, improving our code & infrastructure, fixing bugs and
working on internet standards relevant for DNS."
