White Camel

[ #39429 ]

This year at OSCON, I received a White Camel award. Since I didn't attend OSCON, my good friends Liz and Wendy arranged a little ceremony at the end of YAPC::Europe 2009 where David Adler gave me a big box containing a "Schrödinger White Camel".

Even though I knew about the award and was warned about the ceremony, my little thank-you talk didn't come out so well: I was too moved to make sense.

Here's what I wanted to say:

I'm deeply honoured and extremely proud of receiving this award.

First I would like to thank the people who decided I was worthy of it.

And I would like to add that I'm actually driven by example: in this room I see plenty of people who organize Perl workshops and conferences all over the world, that run mongers groups and technical meetings... All these people are setting the example I followed in my work with the French Perl Mongers and the YAPC Europe Foundation.

So, thank you very much to all of you, for setting such a good example to follow.

Thanks to everyone involved, and thanks a lot to the Perl community for being what it is: a large group of friendly people achieving wonderful things, both technical and non-technical.
