UPDATE 1-17-14: They posted the other award winners here. I’m very happy to see my name among so many other librarian coders!
I am happy to announce that I am going to the upcoming code4lib Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina in March.
The conference was able to secure funding from various sponsors for 9 diversity scholarships to cover travelling expenses. I threw my hat into the ring, wrote an essay on diversity and open-source, and now I have some funds to help me get to North Carolina. It was a very pleasant surprise to get that email yesterday morning.
My thanks to the code4lib Scholarship Committee for selecting my essay!
