Meet Basil Kurian - 2nd place in TurnKey's first community development contest

Last week we finally published our interview with Adrian Moya, who won first place in the TurnKey community development contest. Basil won the respectable 2nd place and though we didn't know it at the same, more of his contributions would make it into the TurnKey library when we more than doubled it in the TurnKey 12 release.

Meet Adrian Moya - winner of TurnKey's first community development contest

Two years ago Adrian Moya won the first TurnKey community development contest. We decided it would be a good idea to interview him so the community would get to know him better. Unfortunately we made the foolish mistake of deciding to postpone the interview until his submissions made it into the TurnKey library as official appliances. In retrospect I think it would have been best if we did the interview right after Adrian won the contest. Hindsight is always 20/20.

Meet Rik Goldman

Rik Goldman is the English and Info Systems teacher that led a team of six high school students to help develop 3 new TurnKey Linux appliances for Ampache, LimeSurvey and Elgg.

Rik is the kind of passionate teacher I wish I had in high school. An innovative thinker who isn't afraid to step outside the box to challenge his students to achieve more.

We wanted everyone to get to know Rik better, so we interviewed him for this blog post.
