Individuals can and do make a difference, but it takes a team to really mess things up!
Observium's team is truly international, with members from 4 different countries on 3 continents speaking a total of 6 languages.
Adam is a veteran of the British service provider and telecommunications industry having spent more than a decade building and rebuilding networks around the UK.
He founded the Observium project as a network engineer in 2007 out of frustration at the lack of effective network monitoring platforms available and to provide a platform fellow network engineers would want to use.
Tom likes McDonalds, Lego, Alfa Romeos and avoiding writing introductions like these.
Tom has been involved with Observium development since 2010. Amongst other things, Tom is responsible for much of the power, environmental and sensor handling infrastructure in Observium. He also maintains many of the "enterprise"-centric features, such as LDAP authentication and printer monitoring.@sid3windr
Mike (Mikhail) has a degree in astrophysics and worked in the Special Astrophysical Observatory of Russia's North Caucasus as an astrophysicist until 2005 when he made the switch to telecommunications and never looked back. He currently serves as CIO of a major telecommunications company in Russia.
Mike has been involved in Observium development since 2012 and chose Observium because he was disappointed in other similar products. He is currently focused on improving the quality of the codebase and refactoring legacy code.
