I Did. You Should. Here's the Nomination Form. Here's Why:
The Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards celebrate and recognize technical expertise and contributions in the Oracle Database community. We all have an expert in our lives. Here's your chance to nominate them for an award. Who is that expert? Sometimes we're inspired by a technical presentation at an Oracle User Group event or SIG; but more often it's that person who is on the discussion space with an answer or suggestion just when you need it. Either way, it's easier to develop great solutions when we "know" someone in our community...and they are is rooting for us, and even helping us along.
Here's my nomination: John Stegeman. And he will be embarrassed and might send me a howler for nominating him.
John Stegeman is a regular in the Oracle Database Community. When he's not answering questions in the Oracle Database General Questions space, he's commenting on social discussions around the Watercooler. He's a Grand Titan with 243,225 points on the Oracle Community platform and an Oracle ACE. He might not be digging in coding an app today, but then again he just might be because he's clearly got SQL chops. And, while he may not realize it, he's been a tremendous help to me as a community manager because his activities help me keep a pulse on what's going on in the community :)
Here's what you need to know:
- Nominations are open through August 15.
- A panel of judges, composed of Oracle ACEs and Oracle employees, will then choose a set of finalists.
- The worldwide Oracle technologist community votes on the finalists from September 15 through October 15.
- The winners of the Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards will be announced at the YesSQL! Celebration during Oracle OpenWorld 2015.
Get your nominations in ASAP!
Ciao for now,
