Congratulations CNCF Community Award Winners!

December 13, 2018 Amanda Katona

It was a very proud moment last night for the cloud native community as the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) recognized 14 individuals for their outstanding contributions over the last year. The packed room cheered as the surprised winners joined Chris A. on stage to receive their awards – a metal bucket with a side of wood tucked inside. WOW - what a moment. This is one of the many reasons why we love the open source community - we recognize that this community thrives because of individual contributions.  

Chop Wood/Carry Water Award: The CNCF TOC and Staff selected 14 community members who helped behind the scenes, dedicating countless hours of their time to open source projects + completing often thankless tasks for the ecosystem’s benefit. Thank you for your devotion to the community!

We are extremely proud of what our team members did to support the community.  

Tim Pepper: As the self-proclaimed “worrier in chief” for the Kubernetes 1.12 release, Tim’s participation further cements the notion that “open source mostly only moves fast in aggregate” and that team work is the key to success.  

Kris Nova and Jorge Castro, our newest team members, we are stoked to have you on the board and can’t wait to see what we can do together.

 

CNCF Top Ambassador: Michael Hausenblas A champion for the cloud native space, Michael helps spread awareness of the CNCF and its incubated projects. He leverages multiple platforms, both online as well as speaking engagements, driving interest and excitement around the projects. We’re excited to work with @mhausenblas on Harbor.  

CNCF Top Committer: Jordan Ligget Jordan was recognized for excellence in technical contributions to CNCF and its projects. He’s made key commits to projects and, more importantly, contributes in a way that benefits the project neutrally as a whole. @liggitt we look forward to seeing what the new year brings, and to hear some music.  

Congratulations to All! We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings.
