The publication of the 29th issue of the journal brings with it several changes to the editorial board.
Following on the heels of the special diversity edition, we are walking the walk and welcoming four new editors:

Meghan Finch Digital Assets Librarian, Oakland University
Péter Király,  Cultural Heritage/digital  humanities developer, Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung mbH Göttingen (GWDG)
Junior Tidal,  Web Services & Multimedia Librarian,  New York City College of Technology, CUNY
Ruth Tillman, Metadata Librarian for NASA Goddard (Cadence Group)

Being an all volunteer committee, we are ever grateful when talented individuals are willing to give of their time and expertise to make the Code4Lib Journal a reality, and are exceedingly happy to have them on board.  We also grateful to Ruth Tillman for taking on the role technical editor, keeping this site up and running.

This issue we also sadly say goodbye to two gifted editors:

Shawn Averkamp, New York Public Library
Kelley McGrath, University of Oregon

We will miss their expertise and wish them will as they move on to focus on other priorities.
