    Kenneth Gonsalves (KG / lawgon) passed away on 3rd Aug 2012. He was leading light, mentor, evangelist and practitioner of Free and Open Source Software. He was a geek up to his last moments. His demise is a great loss to FOSS Community in India. A short bio of Kenneth Gonsalves (Prepared by KG only)” Although he has no formal training in the IT field, Kenneth Gonsalves has been programming since 1986, starting with Turbo Pascal, then moving to Perl and finally to Python in 2003. Since then he has focused on Python in general and the Django web frame work in particular. He is an open source enthusiast and has spoken and written on open source right from 1995 when he was first introduced to it. He has conducted over 50 seminars and workshops in python and Django. He was the founder president of the Indian Python Software Society and a member of the team that has organised the highly successful Indian python conferences from 2009 to 2011. He is now based in Ooty where he writes and consults on open source. He also conducts a job oriented course in python and django. His other main interest is golf and he holds an international certification as a golf referee and has refereed several national level golf tournaments. He writes a regular column called ‘Foss is fun’ for the LFY monthly. Most of his code contributions are here: http://bitbucket.org/lawgon/” He was a good mentor and friend to many of us.
