Update Working Group Member Development Aug 2014 Aug 2016

I slowly entered the world of Joomla via a friend in 2010. Not long after we started developing extensions together. About 6 months in I found a really annoying JUser bug which I submitted a PR for (it took 3 years to merge it but it was totally worth it!!). Since then I've been part of the documentation team, the bug squad team and have helped out in many sub groups focussing on code in the CMS and Framework (including unit testing, postgres fixes, the tinymce 4 update and many more). I've broken much code in the CMS in the past - but overall think I'm probably in credit. Recently I've taken up the post of making Michael Babker's life hell - which I fully intend to continue for the forseeable future.
