Yesterday, the Python Software Foundation posted results of the election for the Board of Directors 2015-2016 term. Thank you to the many individuals that participated and helped with the election. I want take a moment and give special thanks to the 2014-2015 PSF Board for their service and accomplishments.

To the retiring PSF Board members, I love programming in Python, learning from others, and sharing talks. To honor the goodness that each of you bring to the Python community, I would like to highlight some of your talks and celebrate your contributions to Python and our community. Thank you!
