Since it's 2018 launch, the Swift Server Workgroup focused on building out a robust server ecosystem,
and has incubated significant projects that power production server systems.
Members of the SSWG are elected for a two year tenure. Over the last two years Johannes Weiss (@weissi), Logan Wright (@loganwright), Tanner Nelson (@tanner0101), and Tom Doron (@tomerd) have been instrumental in providing direction and leadership to the server community. With their tenure ending, we would like to announce the following changes to the SSWG:
Logan and Tanner are departing from their formal role as workgroup members, making room for new voices and perspectives. Johannes will continue to serve a second term, while Tom will continue to participate and work closely with the workgroup in his capacity as Swift Core Team member.
To help support future efforts, the following members of the community joined the workgroup on December 9th, 2020:
