This week's book giveaway is in the Other Languages forum. We're giving away four copies of Functional Reactive Programming and have Stephen Blackheath and Anthony Jones on-line! See this thread for details.
With only one week remaining for submissions to the JAX Innovation Awards, S&S Media has made a final call for entries. The 3-month JAX Innovation Awards program was launched last month to recognize and reward innovation in the Java Ecosystem, from across the World.
Nominations are still open in 3 categories:
• Most Innovative Java Technology
• Most Innovative Java Company
• Top Java Ambassador
A large volume of nominations across all categories have already been received, but S&S Media is calling for even more submissions to ensure the JAX innovation Awards reflect opinion across the entire Java Ecosystem.
Companies and individuals are free to nominate the people, technologies and companies they feel most deserve recognition for their value to the world of Java. Nominations can be made at http://jax-awards.com/submissions.html
When nominations close on Monday May 16, an expert panel will review entries and determine a shortlist for voting. The panel includes RedMonk’s James Governor; Groovy, Grails and GPars committer, Dierk König; Kito Mann, editor-in-chief of JSF Central, Duke's Choice Award 2005 winner Fabiane Bizinella Nardon; Ted Neward of Neward & Associates; Bruno Souza, Java champion and evangelist, industry reporter Darryl K. Taft; and Sebastian Meyen of S&S Media.
Finalists will be announced on May 30, 2011, with voting opening online June 1. Worldwide Java communities, organizations, companies and individuals will be invited to cast their votes and determine the winners.
