DPDK Community Awards Recognize Development Excellence

By September 27, 2020Blog

For the past three years, the DPDK developer community has honored some of the most outstanding contributions across the project over the past year. While things are quite different this year, we still wanted to take some time to call out some of the amazing success of our developers. While normally, the community meets together in person for the DPDK Userspace Summit (previous locations include Bordeaux, France and Dublin, Ireland) to share knowledge, collaborate on best practices and community alignment, this year’s event was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Not to break tradition, 2020 winners were still recognized during the event on September 22’s Opening Remarks by  DPDK Board Chair Jim St. Leger. We were pleased to welcome even more attendees to this year’s event, given folks were able to join from their own homes. 

Please join us in congratulating all of our nominees and winners!
