It is that time of year again when we recognize someone from our community in memory of our friend Malcolm.
Malcolm was an early core contributor to Django and had both a huge influence and large impact on Django as we know it today.
Besides being knowledgeable he was also especially friendly to new users and contributors. He exemplified what it means to be an amazing Open Source contributor. We still miss him.
The DSF Prize page summarizes the prize nicely:
The Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize is a monetary prize, awarded annually, to the person who best exemplifies the spirit of Malcolm’s work – someone who welcomes, supports and nurtures newcomers; freely gives feedback and assistance to others, and helps to grow the community. The hope is that the recipient of the award will use the award stipend as a contribution to travel to a community event — a DjangoCon, a PyCon, a sprint — and continue in Malcolm’s footsteps.
We will take nominations until Sunday, December 23rd AoE and will announce the winner soon after.
Please make your nominations using this google form.
If you have any questions please reach out to the DSF Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
