Nominating szabgab for the White Camel Award

[ #36581 ]

I alread sent it to and, but here it is just in case:

I'd like to nominate Gábor Szabó (the Hugarian-Israeli Perl programmer, not the Jazz musician) for his contributions to the Israeli and Global Perl Communities. See:

Gabor Szabo is responsible for the fact that the Israeli Perl community, and that of other dynamic languages has took off. So far he:

  1. Set up an alternate mailing list, which proved to be more active -
  2. Set up a tradition of monthly Israeli Perl meetings, which have turned out to be popular.
  3. Organised 3 YAPC::Israel conferences - YAPC::Israel::2003, YAPC::Israel::2004 and YAPC::Israel::2005 and an OSDC::Israel conference - OSDC::Israel::2006.
  4. He helped organise the Hungarian Perl Workshops in Hungary, and a Hungarian YAPC.
  5. He set up CPAN Forum - as a way to get help and ask questions with individual CPAN distributions. Also allows users to tag their modules using delicious-like tags.
  6. His commmercial venture - - has been responsible for training material and sessions for Perl and other FOSS technologies, as well as general FOSS development and support. Some of its material has been made available online free-of-charge.
  7. He has written many weblog entries, comments, emails and other material about communal and technical issues.
  8. Aside from all that, he has done numerous contributions of code, and documentation.
