NomineeReason

Paul KingPaul's contributions over the last 12 years to the groovy project have

benefited us all, both directly, and indirectly via gradle.  He's also

given speeches and written books on groovy to enlighten us all.  In

2010 he received the RockStar award at JavaOne.

Tim AnsellI'd like to nominate Tim Ansell for the Rusty Wrench Award. Over the years he has done a lot for Open Source in Australia, including:

- founded pyconau
- done video at many LA conferences for many years, including personally funding a huge amount of development to get us to where we are today
- massively improved the open FPGA space
- done tomu
- run SLUG
- etc etc
- and been a generally nice guy

I think the timing is nice as he is getting dragged to the US for FPGA things, and I'd like a way to say that we've appreciated his efforts over the years.

Joshua HeskethJoshua exemplifies what it means to be a community leader in open
source. His efforts in Linux Australia and in linux.conf.au 2017 in
Tasmania, his diplomatic style, attention to detail and all around
respect make him a role model for others to aspire to.

Joshua HeskethI'd like to nominate Josh Hesketh as he is the community member that we should all aspire to be. He goes above and beyond when volunteering for this organisation. He helps us Council members when in need of wisdom, advice, help with that pesky MemberDB. He helps and chairs the Diversity Team and brings a level headed and fair approach in whatever situation he is thrown into. And finally he is just an overall decent person.

Richard JonesFor his years of work making PyCon AU happen, for his work on Python and PyPI, and his continued support of young Python developers through initiatives like https://pyweek.org/
7
Christopher NeugebauerFor his years of work organising PyCon AU, Linux.conf.au, Lightning Talk Tzar For Life, and continuing to bring python conferences to life even after leaving Australia. By 2019 he would have been working to help make space for people to learn and teach open source ideals for at least a full decade; not bad for someone so (relatively) young.
