GNOME at the Open Source Awards 2014, Edinburgh

Best Individual goes to ....


Allan Day!!!

Open Source Awards. Edinburgh - Feb 26 2014

It was an absolute honour to be able to receive the Open Source Best Individual Award for Allan today. He is not only a great designer, but his attention to common sense in usability for UI seems influence a strong culture of accessibility as a default consideration in GNOME design.

Personally, I have only great things to say about my own experience with Allan and accordingly, I am delighted to have been the first GNOME contributor to learn of his award - even more delighted to have been the one to be able to collect on his behalf.

Great work Allan and everyone else at GNOME!
