The Django Software Foundation (DSF) is proud to announce the winner of the 2016 Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize: Aisha Bello!

Aisha (@AishaXBello) joined the Django community when she attended a Django Girls workshop during EuroPython in 2015. From that point on, Aisha's trajectory in the Django world was unstoppable.

She is not only a talented developer but her desire to keep learning and sharing her knowledge with others is simply inspiring.

She organized or helped organize a huge number of Django Girls workshop in her home country of Nigeria. Thanks to her, Nigeria is on its way to be the world-record holder of most Django Girls events organized.

She's coached at other Django Girls events, introducing even more people to our community.

She's spoken at several conferences (including PyCon Namibia and DjangoCon US) sharing her unique knowledge and insight with the rest of us.

You can read more about her and her history at Your Django Story: Meet Aisha Bello.

She embodies the values of the Malcolm Tredinnick prize and we can't wait to see what she will achieve in the future.

Congratulations Aisha!
