Eclipse Community Awards Finalists

  • submit to reddit
The voting for Eclipse Community Award finalists ended on February 26th and now the finalists have been announced.  DZone's own James Sugrue has made it into the Finalist category along with the other three nominees for "Top Contributor".  

Eclipse describes a "Top Contributor" as "The individual who best exemplifies support for the Eclipse community through forums, submission of patches, comments on bugs, tutorials, conference presentations, blogs, IRC and other areas. Contributors are the individuals that participate due to their passion for the community and technology. Typically, they are not paid for their Eclipse contributions."  James was nominated for his work on evangelizing Eclipse on the EclipseZone, Javalobby, and DZone at-large.

The DZone staff thanks all the members of the community who voted for James while voting was open.  Here is the complete list of all the finalists in the Eclipse Community Awards:

Congratulations, James!  Although I don't use Eclipse that much anymore, I still manage to learn a lot about it -- and many other interesting topics -- by reading the articles you've posted to DZone.
