On December 21, 2018, the DSF made a call for Django Fellow applicants. On behalf of the Django Software Foundation, the DSF Fellowship Committee is pleased to announce Mariusz Felisiak as the newest Django Fellow.
Mariusz is replacing Tim Graham who recently announced his retirement as a Django Fellow after four years of service.
Mariusz has been designing and implementing Python/Django applications for the past 11 years. He is an active Django Core Team Member, focusing on the ORM and Oracle back-end along with triaging tickets, reviewing pull requests and backporting changes. In addition, he has contributed to more than a dozen open-source projects and is a coach for Django Girls Heidelberg.
The DSF received 6 applicants, all of which were reviewed by the Fellowship Committee before coming to a consensus decision on Mariusz. The level of talent and professionalism in the applicant pool made the decision process challenging. We are grateful for all who applied and their desire to participate in this important initiative.
The Fellowship program has been a great success and is only possible through generous support of the Django Software Foundation. If you or your organization benefit from Django and the work of the Fellowship program, please consider a donation. Every dollar amount, large or small, makes an impact.
