Philippe Bruhat

Award received in 2009.

Most of the past yearly French workshops have happened not because BooK organized them, but by his constant nudging of the de jure organizers. He's bootstrapped almost every monger group and Perl monger activity in France in the past decade. His role as YAPC Europe Foundation (YEF) treasurer is relatively new, but he's been on that board since 2003 and one of the few members that has put in real work to make the foundation work.
