On July 3rd, we launched the trAin your brAIn contributor contest. The focus of the contest was content written about Artificial Intelligence (AI), the topic of our newest Zone. In addition, we asked DZone's awesome contributors to submit posts on AI-related topics, namely Security, IoT, and Big Data.
Posts published to the AI Zone counted for quadruple pageviews, while posts to the Big Data, IoT, and Security Zones counted for double pageviews. Those ten contributors with the most cumulative pageviews by the end of the contest would win prizes, as would the contributor who published the most posts to the AI Zone.
Now, let's announce the winners.
And the ten winners with the most pageviews are...
