It’s time to share who the Qt Champions for 2017 are!
As always, all the nominees were incredible people. It is hard to decide who is most worthy of the Qt Champion title. I asked for help from our lifetime Qt Champion Samuel Gaist, and together we faced the tough decision.
And without further ado, here are the new Qt Champions:
@mrjj and @kshegunov have been granted the Community Builder title. Beside answering questions on the forum @mrjj is always ready to try or build test applications in order to help fellow members to solved their problem. @kshegunov‘s deep C++ knowledge and insightful comments are always appreciated for moving the debate further.
@dheerendra is this year’s Ambassador for all the work he is doing in India that promotes the use of Qt through local meetups, training and also the forum.
@aha_1980 is the 2017 QA Champion. While being present on the forum he’s also very active on the bug reporting front helping on triaging, improving the reports and fixing these nasty bugs especially on the QtSerialBus module.
The Developer title goes to @orgads. His work on Qt’s internal might not be visible to the outside but his gerrit record speaks loudly. Between his own patches and reviews, his helpfulness and friendly nature is praised by his peers.
Our Maverick Of The Year is @benlau ! Ben provides numerous helper libraries covering interesting aspects like promises handling for QML and C++, custom Android components and more.
Thank you everyone for your involvement in Qt, you make the community a better place for everyone!
And congratulations to all the Qt Champions!
