Hello Tanner. Thanks for sharing your motivation and passions with us. 
We're glad to have you. Let us know what we can do to help you. Where 
does your interest in QA lie? If I may ask, what brought you to looking 
at quality?

Here's a few links to get you started on learning more about the team.


Feel free to also drop by on IRC #ubuntu-quality on freenode and say 
hello as well. Welcome!
