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 Friday.

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.
