The Board of the Django Software Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2019 Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize has been awarded to Jeff Triplett (@webology).

Jeff has been heavily involved in the Django Community basically since there was a Django Community. He's served on the Code of Conduct committee for many years but most notably Jeff helped found DEFNA which has run DjangoCon US since 2015. Jeff is also a Board Member of the Python Software Foundation.

Sara Gore, who nominated Jeff, gave this as her main reason for nominating Jeff:

Jeff has served the Django community through the DSF, DEFNA, and the PSF. He turned DjangoCon US into the amazing volunteer run conference that it is today, and mentored many conference organizers and junior developers. He is a true ally who stands up for people in our community.

The other nominees this year were:

Every year we receive many nominations and it's always hard to pick the winner. In fact, some people like Jeff have been nominated in multiple years. Malcolm would be very proud of the legacy he has fostered in our community!

Congratulations Jeff!
