Sawyer X

Award received in 2015.

You can hardly go to a Perl conference (or Amsterdam X Perl mongers) without hearing Sawyer X talk about the wonders of the Perl community (e.g. The Joy in What We Do). He writes the Perl 5 Porters weekly summaries and has been a driving force in the Dancer community. No matter where he shows up, in person or online, he's been the shining light of kindness and helpfulness that makes the Perl community a nice place to move bits around.
