Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Award

We're over the moon to share the exciting news that Djangonaut Space has been honored with the Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Award! This recognition holds a special place for us, as we follow in the footsteps of Django Girls as the second-ever organization recipient. 💚 We're eager to launch into the future and continue the legacy and make a meaningful impact. 🚀

Though none of our organizers had the chance to personally interact with Malcolm, we've delved into the past through community memorandum posts. It's clear that Malcolm deeply cared about the community, its people, and the pursuit of knowledge—an ethos that has become integral to the Django community. We're committed to paying it forward, acknowledging the debt we owe to those who paved the way for us. 🫂

In our work at Djangonaut Space, each person we assist on their journey is a testament to the collective effort of those who opened doors and invited others in. We extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us, cheered us on, promoted our cause, participated in our initiatives, and worked tirelessly to make Django a more inclusive and welcoming community. 🥰

Here's to honoring Malcolm Tredinnick's legacy and fostering a community that values collaboration, learning, and inclusivity for years to come. Thank you all for being a crucial part of this journey! May our shared efforts be as boundless as the cosmos. 🌌

For those that weren’t fortunate to know him, we invite you to take some time to read some of the impact he had within the Django community.
