Nominate Perl heroes for the 2017 White Camel Awards

We're looking for nominations for the 2017 White Camel Awards that recognize significant non-technical achievement in Perl and its community. Each year we recognize work in the broad categories of community, advocacy, and user groups. These people keep the Perl community going and deserve to be recognized!

To nominate someone, you can send me a name and your reasoning through any means you like. Reply here, post on Twitter (note @briandfoy_perl or use the #whitecamelaward tag so I'll find it), send me email, hire landscapers to write out the names in tulips then take an aerial photo you post to instagram, or something more creative. Note, however, that the method of nomination does not factor into our decision!

Just went to the WhiteCamel site. How in the world has Damian not won one of these?

I think it's about time. As evidence, I present: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob6YHpcXmTg&t=2s&index=1&list=PLlD3K-igA84dGmROLTKuPnNvNGgKjyADd

From this work, we gain the ability to modify the Perl language in ways that we have never had before. These mods are at the Perl level, not the XS or core C levels. so that the larger community can more easily use them.
