Behdad Esfahbod won an O'Reilly Open Source Award!
Sent by:

Some of you probably have heard the news already, but in case you haven't,
Behdad won the prestigious O'Reilly Open Source Award, announced last

Here's the announcement:

Selected quotes:

"The O’Reilly Open Source Awards recognize individual contributors who
have demonstrated exceptional leadership, creativity, and collaboration in
the development of Open Source Software. [...]

Behdad Esfahbod (HarfBuzz): Through the HarfBuzz project Behdad is working
relentlessly to get all languages supported in Free Software operating
systems, word processors, devices and browsers, no matter how complex
their scripts are."

I wish to congratulate Behdad for his achievements, which has really
helped make open source way more accessible to billions of users around
the world. I'm eagerly waiting for his amazing magic and superhacker
skills to bear even more fruits over the years to come. I'm proud to have
been able to call him a friend, colleague, and collaborator for more than
fifteen years now.
