The CLAMP Steering Committee is proud to announce the 2016-17 winners of the CLAMP Recognition Awards.
Joe Bacal, Applications Administrator at Smith College, has participated in CLAMP since the Winter 2016 Hack/Doc at Reed College. As a relative newcomer, Joe was open and helpful, assisting with the testing of Moodle. He also provided a SQL ad-hoc report for admins to help determine the extent of use for the PDF annotate function, which was invaluable as schools decided whether to enable it for Moodle 3.1 and higher.
Dan Wheeler, Senior Research and High Performance Computing Specialist at Colgate University, has distinguished himself as a member of the CLAMP community by being a long-time attendee at Hack/Doc events on both the hacker and doc’er side. He is always friendly, approachable, and willing to help out others and share his experience. Dan was a member of the CLAMP Steering Committee from 2013-2016, and he organized and hosted the CLAMP Summer Hack/Doc Fest at Colgate University in 2013.
