In memoriam: Jacques Guignot

Post by ton » Mon Feb 28, 2005 8:14 pm

Hi everyone,

Yesterday the sad news reached us that Jacques Guignot died of a heart attack last February 6th. He was one of very active developers in the Python team, especially contributing to the full Python API recode project.
According to the people who worked with him, Jacques really enjoyed working on it, and was quite proud of his achievements in Blender Python coding. Jacques was one of the winners of the Suzanne Award for "Best development contribution" 2003.

I remember Jacques especially from his occasional visits on IRC, which he consistantly kept "to the point", getting the information he needed and then immediately back to work. :)

Jacques, we'll miss you. My thoughts are with you and your friends and family.
