Each year at JavaOne we recognize the best speakers of the conference as voted on by attendees through the surveys.  This year the overall reviews given by attendees were higher on average, so I guess we did something right with the content…  :)  However, it also means the criteria for getting awarded a JavaOne Rock Star was even more difficult.

Here are all the folks who made the cut, and were the best-of-the-best at the JavaOne 2013 event.  Give them a virtual round of applause (I linked to their twitter handles to make this even easier to do):
