I have had the joy of working as a mentor to Simon since his introduction to the Ubuntu community. He has been incredibly engaged and excited. He is well-organized, keeps focus, but is always exploring new avenues to contribute. Among his regular contributions, he has managed to breathe new life into his LoCo, has been incredibly useful to the Lubuntu Team, working hand in hand with me and other team members, and has consistently contributed to Ubuntu News. Simon is a young man and his sometimes displayed a certain lack of professionalism (albeit rarely). Though this is to be expected to some degree, my observation has been that he has resiliently responded to the criticism he has been given. This is a hallmark of maturity I think many of his peers lack. I would also comment on his care for others. He has shown me many a thing that relates to my own interests, simply for the joy of making me happy. I think this is a sign of a good mentor/mentee relationship. I trust that Simon will continue to grow and will continue to make Ubuntu better. -- wxl 2016-01-30 22:21:35

Simon was very helpful to me while showing me how to contribute to the Ubuntu Newsletter. He was very friendly and nice to me in doing so. Although I didn't end up contributing, he was nice in working with me. I support his application for Ubuntu Membership. -Zoueid NaeƮl on November 21, 2015

My last testimonial written here, now erased, was in November of 2015. From then to now, I have noticed a substantial shift in Simon's attitude towards others and the community. I have observed that he is handling himself in a far more professional manner, and has taken great strides to work well with others in the teams and tasks he's focused on. I have also personally observed his interactions with others with regards to QA, and believe he has made exceptional strides. He's made a substantial amount of contributions, and appears to make more each and every day. I think that, while Simon has some ways to go, he would be a good candidate for Ubuntu membership, provided that he continues to act in a professional manner and have positive interactions within the community. -- teward 2016-01-30 23:01:20

Simon revived the LoCo in summer 2015 with my help and has served as the mentor for many tasks I completed in Google Code-in 2015. He's been a great person to work with as well as a great friend, despite being off-topic at times. I support his application for an Ubuntu membership as he is a great member of the community. -- adueppen 2016-01-31 00:09:15

I've been cooperating with Simon for a while. He's proved being a very smart and adaptative guy. Despite his age, Simon is a really useful guy, having a deep knowledge of coding, bug hunting and ISO testing. I'm fully convinced he'll be a great asset, he learns fast and Linux is a passion for him. I see him testing ISOs daily at the QA group, reporting bugs and cooperating with my IRC group and a few more, spending time to solve problems. I support his membership application. -- rafaellaguna 2016-01-31 14:33:25

Simon has been a wonderful help to QA and an active participant in the greater community whenever there's an opportunity. I appreciate his willingness to help out with GCI, the manual tests project, and image testing. I support his application for membership. -- nskaggs 2016-02-02 03:14:08

I have only had contact with Simon in regard to community QA and the Manual Testcase project. As others have noted, in the past there were times when his professionalism might have appeared to let him down - I've seen no recurrence of that for some time now and enjoy working with him when our paths cross - which they do, frequently. In particular his work with students during the recent GCI on the QA tracker tasks was well received. His enthusiasm for pushing the QA trackers/manual testcase project is commendable. I see no reason why he shouldn't be an Ubuntu Member and support his application. --flocculant 2016-02-03 07:31:08

Simon is greatly energized and in support of our Wisconsin Ubuntu LoCo. He prepares, organizes, and conducts remote meetings regularly and with enthusiasm. -- mikeputnam 2016-02-04 19:27:49

Simon has grown a lot in the past few months and is showing great enthusiasm and passion for what he's doing. He first approached me about re-energizing the Wisconsin LoCo and has since stepping into the contact/leadership role. Together, we've worked on a few pieces, and I've passed on the torch to him. He's working a lot with QA, is active on IRC, and our Wisconsin LoCo. I would absolutely recommend him as an Ubuntu Member. --anthonyhook - <<DateTime: execution failed [Bad timestamp u'timestamp': could not convert string to float: timestamp] (see also the log)>>
