Eclipse Awards at EclipseCon
The nominations have been made for the Eclipse Community Awards, so it's time to go vote. It is awards season after all!
Voting is open until February 21st, with the winner being announced on March 17th at EclipseCon.

I'd really encourage people to vote - these guys really deserve it, and it will encourage more people to contribute to the Eclipse Community.

Here's a breakdown of the categories with the nominees.

Top Ambassador

  • Tim Barnes
  • Jeff McAffer
  • Ed Merks
  • Philippe Ombredanne

Top Committer

  • Chris Aniszczyk
  • Nick Boldt
  • Trip Gilman
  • Mik Kersten
  • Paul Webster
  • David Williams

Top Contributor

  • Jacek Pospychala
  • Remy Chi Jian Suen

My Predictions

These predictions are only my own opinions on who I think deserves the awards.

Firstly, for Top Ambassador I think that it'll be Ed Merks. He's done a great job always promoting Eclipse and his work on the modelling project is an example for all other members of the community.

Next, for Top Committer I think that Chris Aniszczyk deserves it, if only for the BugDays that he's set up. It's a brilliant idea and really gets people focussed. Of course, he's done a pile of other things, but that really stands out for me.

Finally, for Top Contributor, I'm going to leave that one at 50/50 - both guys seem to have done a lot of work to deserve it.
