Christof Jauernig, Chief Editor – The International List Of Famous Waldorf Alumni

Opher Segev responded to my request for voluntary web programming support. My hope had been to find someone who would revamp the website of “theWaldorfs”, a private and voluntary initiative founded in 1997 in order to promote Waldorf education related topics and home to “The International List of Famous Waldorf Alumni”. To be honest, I hadn’t been too confident to really find someone who would do web programming free of charge. And if so, I NEVER would have expected that there would be someone on this planet willing and able do this in a manner as professional, creative, reliable, enthusiastic, patient and proactive as Opher did. He brought our website into shape, made it look beautiful, set up a new MySQL database, did all the big and little things required to really get a website going, was constantly available for a period of two months and responded to every request in such an amazing speed, that I kept asking myself when, if at all, he caught sleep. I am certain that there are quite some paid web programmers that wouldn’t by far come up with such a level of engagement and professionalism as Opher showed, in his case not for money but solely on the basis of wanting to help the good cause. My deepest respect goes to him for that. It has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with him, and I am deeply thankful that he crossed our project’s way. Anyone who will be equally lucky can be certain that his cause and website will profoundly be taken care of.
