Matt "Cosine" Walther
Matt, @mashiox, has been developing software since 2007. An Applied Mathematics undergrad, and video game geek, he thought up Whozawhat in 2012 when he was in need of a better way to inspect his raid team pre-raid instead of opening a million Battle.net armory tabs.
In his free time, he likes reading, playing neat games, and writing his own games.
Started in mid-2012 as "Misfit Audit" after the World of Warcraft guild name Cosine was apart of and Raid Leaded for.
Whozawhat eventually evolved into "Misfit Audit 2" before taking on the name of Whozawhat. Whozawhat saw it's first Beta release in November of 2012 attracting the attention and criticism of a few raid leaders in need of a tool like Whozawhat. After more polish was applied, Whozawhat was offically released on 10 July 2013, with great aspirations for future development.

To make Raid and Guild administration just a little easier. We want to make a tool that audits the status of a group of raiders and provides feedback on what is less than optimal about the group's attributes. And we want to do this in a way that works cohesively with other existing optimization technologies.
In a purist sense, Raiders. Specifically, raiders in charge of organizaing guild events. However, Whozawhat can be used by a single hardcore raider maintaing several raid-ready characters, or a PvP battleground group leader, Arena team managers, etc.
Whozawhat is still very young, as far as projects go. I am very interested in community feedback as to what leaders find important on their spreadsheets, and have set up a board specifically for this purpose.
That said, a long term goal is to give leaders control over what stats are displayed on the spreadsheet. We'll get there soon, Raccoon!
