The KMyMoney Development Team
Who we are and what we do...
||Thomas Baumgart - project
administrator, maintainer, and developer.
ipwizard at users.sourceforge.net
Open minded, solution oriented, helpful, eager to learn, Thomas Baumgart started to work on the KMyMoney project mid September of 2001. "I was on the hunt for a good M$-Money replacement, which was the last application I was actively using on M$-Windows." Shortly after 0.4. was delivered, Thomas was elected a project admin and maintainer for this project.
Thomas rewrote most parts of the core engine (MyMoneyXXX) objects and introduced the double entry accounting stuff. He also rewrote the register code (ledger view), added multi-currency support, GPG encryption and some widget improvements. This all is now part of 0.8. "I would like to see KMyMoney become as well known as some other KDE programs like KMail, Kopete and others."
Uses:"I am mostly using openSUSE distros. Currently, I have openSUSE 11.3 on 32 bit and 13.1 on 64 bit. For bug-hunting in KMyMoney I use VirtualBox based virtual machines and load whatever is required. Also, I have already accessed a FreeBSD machine of one of our users through the internet to solve some problems."
||Alvaro Soliverez - Developer
asoliverez at users.sourceforge.net
Alvaro has worked in the IT industry since 1997, doing anything from application support to software development and project management. When he switched to Linux in 2005, he became aware of KMyMoney. This was the last application he was missing to make the final switch to a full GNU/Linux environment. Having programmed in C at an early age and developed in Java, he found his way around with Qt C++. He is also an activist in the local Free Software community, helping others make the switch to Linux.
He is currently the maintainer of forecast and reports, and moderator of the forum and mailing lists.
Uses: Kubuntu and Xubuntu 7.10
||Fernando Vilas - Developer
fvilas at users.sourceforge.net
Fernando's interest in computers was inevitable after his parents found him trying to take apart the family car -- as a toddler. He started using Slackware and FreeBSD as part of a school project in 1997. Since then, as his taste in operating systems and programs matured he converted completely to Slackware in 2002. He is striving to convert his entire family to Linux operating systems -- under the threat he won't maintain their Windows boxes anymore.
He came across KMyMoney in search of a stable and Linux-friendly money management software. Currently, he is working with Tony on the database backend. Once that is stable, he hopes to add support for investment derivatives as well as a watch list for potential investments.
Uses: Laptop and Desktop - Slackware-current. Ancient Laptop - Xubuntu.
||Cristian Oneţ - Developer

Cristian is a young Romanian who came in touch with Open Source Software during his studies at the Timișoara computer science faculty between 2002 and 2007. After spending some time with development in C for embedded devices for the automotive industry, he now develops desktop applications for Windows using C++.
In 2007 he started using KMyMoney and joined the developer community a year later. Before he became an official member of the team, Cristian developed a set of plugins for the application. Nowadays, he's one of the driving people behind the KDE4 port of KMyMoney.
Uses: Desktop - Gentoo Linux with KDE and VMs with varioius OSes
