Well a couple highlights of my year:

* I organised the Plone Conference 2010 which was held in the UK this year. We had nearly 300 attendees from 33 different countries. This was a fantastic event, a great community of people and demonstrating the power of python in larger systems

* We launched a python based eMentoring site for Brightside UNIAID, with currently around 60 schemes (each a separate site), 18,000 registered users with 100 logged in per hour. 

* I was elected Vice President of the Plone Foundation.

* We hired another python developer (bringing our small company up to 13 people in total) and gave everyone a 10% pay rise, bucking the doom and gloom of the recession.
