With our 2020 year ending with continued dashed hopes for members to gather in person, OASIS Open held a virtual Distinguished Contributors & Open Cup Awards and Year-End Update. Distinguished Contributors Award is awarded to a select group of OASIS members who have made significant contributions to the advancement of open standards and/or open source projects, similar to a “Lifetime Achievement Award” or “Hall of Fame.” Open Cup is in recognition of exceptional advancements within the OASIS technical community. Two groups were awarded the Cup this year, one for Outstanding Approved Standard and another for Outstanding New Initiative.
The Awards Ceremony concluded with a musical review of our year together. (There are things about 2020 that will make you smile.)
