Welcome. I have been a MediaWiki developer since 15th of May, 2008 (under the commit name ashley).
In addition to my contributions to the core MediaWiki software, I have written lots of extensions on my own and contributed code to many extensions not written by me originally.
I'm familiar with MediaWiki's skin system and I've written and maintained plenty of skins.
I also maintain the various social tools, of which the most notable one is the SocialProfile extension.
You can see some of these tools in action on wikis such as Halopedia.
I've also had a major role at open-sourcing some major projects using MediaWiki, namely Wikia, ArmchairGM and wikiHow.
Before my involvement, Wikia and ArmchairGM weren't open source and wikiHow's tarball of their source code wasn't updated very often.
In addition, I'm a bureaucrat on this wiki; if you need my assistance (i.e. you'd like to request a rename, a promotion or you would like to have some code commits reviewed), please do not hesitate to contact me.
Since March 2012, when MediaWiki and the majority of maintained extensions were forcibly moved into git and we switched to gerrit as the code review tool, I haven't been very active with MediaWiki development due to multiple reasons, of which the biggest two are git and gerrit.
From August to November 2012, I was the volunteer product manager for Wikimedia Foundation's admin tools development work.
I've been a staff member (Head of the Customer Support Team) at ShoutWiki since its very foundation (2007).
