Eclipse Community Award Winners Announced

Chris Mayer

The first day of EclipseCon has been celebrating innovation within the Eclipse ecosystem, with awards handed out to projects and individuals. Read on to find the big winners…

As EclipseCon North America 2012 gets into full swing in Day 2, it’s time to reflect on yesterday’s action which mostly focused on rewarding some of the hardest working Eclipse contributors with the Eclipse Community Awards.

In a glitzy awards ceremony in Reston, Virginia, the following people scooped top honours:

Individual Awards – voted for online by peers

  • Top Committer: Sven Efftinge
  • Top Contributors: Stephan Herrmann and Alex Blewitt
  • Top Newcomer Evangelist: Lars Vogel 

(Lars wrote on his blog that ‘receiving the award is a great honor’ and he hoped that his work ‘as Eclipse Evangelist will continue to help other learning and embracing the Eclipse platform.’)

  • Lifetime Contribution Award: Ed Merks

Project Awards – voted for online by peers

Technology Awards (Eclipse-based open source projects and commercial products) – special panel of judges. 



Congratulations to all the winners at this year’s Eclipse Community Awards!
