monzie writes: "It's the time of the year again and our brave geek-warriors need to know who's the head of the tribe. Our home-working geek warrior of 2011-2012 is Manish Chakravarty who specializes in Ruby, Ruby on Rails and Selenium. He's supposedly working on a book too. The result is surprising to say the least becasue he's not only the youngest to win the presitigious award, but also has a near-perfect feedback score of 4.88/5

Leave your comments here in wishing him all the best. Slashdot will cover the story further as it unfolds"
