UK Python people: is there anyone you know (including yourself!) who has
contributed time & effort into the UK Python community, in any way?
Someone who volunteers at Raspberry Jams, someone who runs Python
workshops, who helps with Django Girls, who does the Python stuff in the
local library's Code Club, who organises a meetup or who turns up at one
to support people, who persuades their company to host a Python Dojo,
who helps answer people's Python questions on StackOverflow or the
ComputingAtSchool forums, who operates behind the scenes of the Python
mailing lists, who answers the same teacher's newbie question for the
nth time, who produces worksheets or cheatsheets or flash cards to help
people learn, who volunteers in the local Adult Education Centre to help
people begin to program, who turns up month after month or year after
year to that Python event, never making a fuss, but standing for the
Do you know anyone like that?
Then nominate them for the John Pinner awards, named after the man who
did so much of that himself, and without whose understated dynamism we
wouldn't have PyCon UK.
Go to this page. Do it now.
Put down whoever you can think of who contributes time and effort to
supporting the Python community in the UK in any way.
PS If you want to gripe about it being a Google form and that, just
email *me* and I'll fill it in for you. Ok?
