We are excited to congratulate Kurt Acker and Neale Ferguson on being chosen as IBM Champions for the second year in a row!
IBM Champions are selected from among technology experts in order to share their knowledge. From the program website:
The IBM Champions program recognizes these innovative thought leaders in the technical community and rewards their contributions by amplifying their voice and increasing their sphere of influence. IBM Champions are enthusiasts and advocates: IT professionals, business leaders, developers, executives, educators, and influencers who support and mentor others to help them get the most out of IBM software, solutions, and services.
IBM Champions are a community of 700+ external experts across IBM offerings and around the world who are recognized by IBM for their extraordinary expertise and contributions to the technical community.
Champions are developers, technologists, consultants, CXOs, managers, faculty, students, engineers, and architects who are nominated and selected annually based on thousands of contributions.
IBM Champions support the success of IBM products by offering feedback from the front lines and technical ideas from the cutting edge. They nurture and support technical communities by running user groups and conferences, writing blogs and articles, contributing code and content to forums, and speaking at conferences.
