And The Winners Are… – 1st Annual Codequeeze Reader AwardsFiled Under Announcements
Before I announce the winners, I want to give a big thanks to those that participated. It was a lot of fun interacting with readers offline about different topics and guest posts.
Because so many people did cool things in different ways, it was really hard to score people using my original “score sheet” method. So I decided to hand them out categorically…and the winners of the 1st Annual Codesqueeze Reader Awards are…
Best Overall Reader – James Ehly from DevTrench! Not only did he write the guest post – 25 Signs That You’ve Got a Bad Client, but he also added me to his blogroll and ran StumbleUpon ads across his post. For his heroic efforts he wins the iPod donated from MonkeyJunkie.com!
Best Guest Post – Jason Gibb wins the best guest post award for his white hot post – Software Teams vs. Superheroes: Why the Solo Developer is Dead. He will receive the sweet laptop bag generously donated by Atlassian!
Best Commenter – Jeremy Neuharth has been adding his 2 cents since the start of this blog and brought the heat the last month and wrote the guest post – Sharpen Your Axe Before Starting Your Next Project. He will receive a signed copy of the new book Continuous Integration donated by Stelligent.
A big thanks to all my readers that participated, but a final thanks to my gift sponsors:
- James Deboe – CEO of MonkeyJunkie.com home of the best deals on consumer electronics!
- Jon Silvers – Director of Marketing for Atlassian makers of the best damn continuous integration, bug tracking, and code coverage tools available.
- Burke Cox – CEO of Stelligent – a company chalked full of talent ready to give your company coaching on continuous integration and software productivity.
Thanks again everybody, hopefully next year will be bigger!
