The Silver Camel goes to ... Mark Keating
At the end of the London Perl Workshop this year, we presented Mark Keating with a Silver Camel, to acknowledge everything he has done, and continues to do, for the Perl community, and particularly the UK Perl community.
Here's Mark shortly after being presented with his Silver Camel:
In case you're not familiar with Mark:
- He has been chief organiser of the London Perl Workshop since 2008
- He is co-founder and co-leader of North-West England Perl Mongers
- He's been involved in the Google Summer of Code
- He's director and secretary of the enlightened perl organisation
- He's chair of The Perl Foundation's marketing committee
- He's been a key player in the scheme to send newbies to conferences
- He's talked about Perl at non-Perl conferences
- His and Matt's company (Shadowcat) are long-term supporters of Perl
Here's a close-up of the Silver Camel:
Wendy has more pictures of Mark and his camel on flickr.
Because he's a committee member on The Perl Foundation (TPF), Mark's not currently eligible for a white camel award. But we wanted to acknowledge the range of things he does for us, particularly LPW.
Thank you Mark, for everything you do for us and Perl.
