Valve Has Hired Another Open-Source Linux GPU Driver Developer
Joining the work by Timothy Arceri, Andres Rodriguez, Samuel Pitoiset, and others working on the open-source Linux graphics stack while being funded by Valve, Daniel Schürmann is the company's latest hire.
Daniel Schürmann is this new name to Linux graphics contributions. He began his Valve work by contributing some RADV patches for this Radeon Vulkan driver in Mesa.
Valve's Pierre-Loup Griffais has confirmed Daniel Schürmann is part of Valve's open-source graphics group.
It will be great to see what open-source GPU driver improvements they deliver this year.
