We are honored to present 154 contributors from 29 countries with peer bonuses, representing more than 80 open source projects.
The Google Open Source Peer Bonus program was launched in 2011, and over the years became a much loved initiative within open source. Many teams at Google rely on open source projects in their work and are very keen to support contributors who devote their time and energy to these projects. Here are some quotes from our winners about what the program means to them.
“Google's OSS Peer Bonus program recognizes the fantastic work done by people who volunteer their time tirelessly to contribute to open source projects. Society as a large benefits from having a strong community of contributors to open source software. I'm humbled to receive the OSPB award.” – Robert A. van Engelen, ugrep contributor
“It is a very motivating program, rewarding and acknowledging important work [for open source].” - Christoph Gorgulla, VirtualFlow contributor
“Open source is a great chance to work on worldwide use products with other developers. It was a pleasure and, hope I made Firebase a bit better. Thanks a lot!” - Andrey Uryadov, Firebase iOS SDK contributor
“The Angular team is incredibly welcoming and supportive to open source contributors, the support and appreciation they give to any sort of contribution, no matter on size or relevance is really impressive and heartwarming.
