O’Reilly Open Source Award 2011

I just got the O’Reilly Open Source Award 2011 at OSCON at Portland, for my work on Jenkins. I’m quite humbled and honored, (and I certainly hope I can finally convince my wife that I’m doing my part in making the world better.) For the past 7 years of the life of this project, I’ve…
