Nuwan Waidyanatha

Nuwan Waidyanatha has been with Sahana since 2006. The Sahana Software Foundation has granted Nuwan membership along with a post in the Standards and Interoperability Committee. Prior to that he was also a Sahana Project Management Committee member. He regularly mentors students in events such as the Google Summer of Code (since 2009) and Google Code-In (since 2010) to help the Sahana foundation with community and code developments. This marriage with Sahana provides a platform for him to contribute his experience towards developing the Sahana Messaging/Alerting Broker, a much needed tool for multi-agency situational-awareness that allows for integrating national and international organizations for the vertical and horizontal exchange of risk information.
