Stephen Hahn

A couple of weeks ago Stephen Harpster sent this mail around to the various engineering teams here at Sun about Stephen Hahn. I'm putting it here in my blog for safe keeping because I think it's important to live outside the company as well.

Stephen Harpster on the promotion of Stephen Hahn:

It is my great pleasure to announce Stephen Hahn's promotion to Distinguished Engineer. Stephen joined Sun in 1997, right out of Brown University where he received his PhD in physics. At Sun, Stephen has been a tour de force, first driving the work for Resource Management which earned him the Chairman's Award in 2002, followed by SMF (Service Management Facility) which earned him a second Chairman's Award and InfoWorld's Innovator Award in 2005.

Today, Stephen is the tech lead for OpenSolaris. He has been instrumental in the success of OpenSolaris, from the initial strategy and implementation planning, to how the community and program are evolving today. He works with both the community outside of Sun on adoption and governance, as well as with engineering, marketing, and legal groups inside Sun on taking proprietary projects out into the open.
 
Please help me in congratulating Stephen. This is a major step that will benefit both Stephen and Sun, and one that is certainly well deserved.

Congratulations, Stephen!

Indeed. Congratulations, Stephen. :)

Stephen is the man. OpenSolaris wouldn't be where it is without him.

(Too many Stephens in this thread...) It has been a great pleasure to interact with Stephen Hahn in the OpenSolaris community through the various lists and boards. Stephen's comments are consistently professional and useful, and I have learned a great deal about OpenSolaris through him. This is truly a well deserved honor.
