Iris Adä: one of the last to join the team. She quickly changed her name to be first on this list. She is responsible for the data generation nodes in KNIME and the only one with taste in the team.
Christian Albrecht: quickly changed his name from "Aalbrecht" to avoid getting in trouble with Iris. He is the one who plays with all browsers on all operating system 1982 and newer to make sure our WebPortal also works in the future.
Michael Berthold: arguably the author of the first line of KNIME code and the fearless scientific leader. He is also the one who keeps adding features to already closed release lists (which others then have to implement).
Christian Dietz: the man behind the Image Processing Extensions (together with Martin) and one of the prime reasons why the community is so strong in this area. Unfortunately his faible for terrible german soccer teams makes him the victim of many obvious jokes, too.
Thomas Gabriel: arguably the author of the other first line of KNIME code and responsible for the R integration, the database nodes and much more.
Heather Fyson: she makes us a truly international, multi-continental team and also makes sure we use the real English!
Aaron Hart: Our chemist!
Heiko Hofer: the lonely north german on the team who has time and peace (until kid #3 shows up) to implement really cool new nodes for the KNIME platform.
Martin Horn: is usually somewhere else, trying to kill himself doing what he calls "sport". When unbroken, he takes care - together with Christian - of the Image Processing extensions.
Tobias Kötter: ponders bisociative creativity support and in his spare time continues to improve the GroupBy node and a number of other KNIME modules.
Thorsten Meinl: the man behind the KNIME build machine. He is also responsible for the chemistry extensions and is the only one on the team who believes Genetic Algorithms work.
Peter Ohl: arguably the one who wrote yet another first line of KNIME code. The man behind the increasingly magical File Reader node and the only one who has a hunch about book keeping.
Martina Pavlakovic: our swiss team member. Now that Aaron has started to code nodes and Phil is using the Java Snippet node she is the sole representative of the non-programmer group. She still
does not fancy sushi and eats fruit but that will change soon...
Sebastian Peter: the youngster. And he jumped right in and implemented the Web Analytics plug-in.
Rosaria Silipo: has been mining data all her (professional) life (since 2006 using KNIME, of course) and is now mining for KNIME, too.
Kilian Thiel: the other bisociative thinker. Plays ping pong with Tobias and is responsible for the Text Mining plug-in and R integration.
Phil Winters: the oldest (by far) on the team. But also the one who actually knows how to really mine data. 'Cuz he's been doing it for ages!
Patrick Winter: the youngest (by not so far) on the team. He is working hard on bringing KNIME node and workflow searching to a desktop near you soon.
Bernd Wiswedel: the one who likely did write the first line of code and still understands it. Bernd kills ducks with his bare hands and is the man behind all of the data handling in KNIME.
