I recently won Erlanger of the Year at the Erlang User Conference 2008 in Stockholm.
I couldn't go to accept the award in-person, but here's a picture of me accepting it from my daughter, in a small ceremony at home.
It's an honor and a surprise to win this award. I hardly feel deserving, Erlang has been a key part of the success of CouchDB and it's such an astonishingly good match I was lucky to have discovered it when I did. Thanks!
