Introducing Shruthi Rajaram, Mifos Community Engineer

Hello Mifos and Fineract communities,

I wanted to formally introduce Shruthi Rajaram of Conflux Technologies who
is just starting out her role as Mifos Community Engineer as of yesterday.
You'll hopefully be seeing a lot of her on the lists as she's stepping into
the role that Nazeer once filled in presiding over the community. I'll let
her introduce herself and her background.

The Mifos Initiative as fortunate enough to secure funding from DIAL
through one of their catalytic grants to get the Dirty Jobs work done. Her
role is made possible by this grant.

As you've seen over the past several months, there have been delays in
shipping releases, merging pull requests, fixing bugs, building new APIs.
Having a dedicate person in this role will certainly help with these delays
but I don't want it to reduce the pressure or remove the need for our
committers and community at large to be helping with these vital duties
because our aim is to help make the Fineract and Mifos communities
self-functioning without intervention of funded dedicated developers.

For the near immediate future, she'll be working on the APIs that our GSOC
students need and getting the outstanding pull requests merged for Fineract

Her scope of focus across Fineract and Mifos will include:

* - Review and merge pull requests from interns, partners, and volunteers
in our community to the Apache Fineract platform- Review and merge pull
requests from interns, partners, and volunteers in our community to the
Mifos X web and mobile apps- Guide the QA process and release management
process as part of the Apache Way to publicly release Apache Fineract-
Prepare and package corresponding Mifos X web and mobile app releases that
consume the stable Apache Fineract platform. - Triage incoming bug reports
and feature requests. - Fix critical and show-stopping bugs and security
vulnerabilities that arise and release them promptly as hot fixes.  - Fix
outstanding P1 bugs and feature requests from our backlog that requires
deep platform-level knowledge that volunteers can’t take on. - Develop new
APIs, integrations, and minor features which are dependencies for other
projects which will be developed upon by interns and volunteers.-
Architectural Design and Technical Onboarding - as new external
contributors come to the project, we need an expert on our platform to give
them an initial technical onboarding and help them properly design new
features they’d like to build - Dev Ops to maintain continuous integration
servers and build pipelines to push merged code to our staging server and
push stable releases to our demo servers. *Join in welcoming Shruthi to our
