NZ Open Source Awards
IITP were pleased to be a Silver Sponsor and in attendance at the NZ Open Source Awards this week, and boy were there some awesome entries.
There's a great roundup of the awardees over on NBR(external link). Our favourite was the Catalyst Open Source Academy(external link), an excellent "code camp" style initiative run each year to teach school students how to code using open source.
Speaking of Catalyst(external link), it's not possible to comment on the awards without tipping one's hat to the great work Catalyst IT does in the open source space, and this was evidenced by the remarkable connection so many of the finalists and awardees had with the country's largest open source company. As one of the two Platinum supporters (alongside InternetNZ), Catalyst also continues to capture the spirit of our industry by giving back to their community - well done folks, and thanks.
