Announcing the Honorees for the 2019 DevOps Dozen Awards
We are pleased to announce the 2019 DevOps Dozen honorees. I would say DevOps Dozen winners, but truth be told every single one of the finalists in this year’s DevOps Dozen was a winner.
When I launched the DevOps Dozen in 2015, I hoped they would grow to reflect and recognize the best of the best in the maturing DevOps space. This year, there is no doubt in my mind that the winners are unsurpassed in the DevOps community. In fact, the whole process of nominations was open, from the public making the selections of finalists to the criteria the judges used, with the results showing they really do represent the best in the community.
Congratulations to the honorees in the 12 categories—it is quite an accomplishment to be selected. Congratulations also to all of the finalists, who should be proud to be part of such an impressive list.
Since the nomination process began, our team has gone through thousands of votes to pick out the finalists in each category. It was not an easy task, as we couldn’t automate (DevOps) it; we had to do it by hand. Also, many thanks to the judges—Jayne Groll of the DevOps Institute, Mitchell Ashley of Accelerated Strategies (more on that soon) and Charlene O’Hanlon, managing editor of MediaOps—for making the hard calls. Thanks also to everyone here at DevOps.com for helping out. Technically, I was a judge this year as well but only voted in the case of a tie. With three other judges, I was spared from having to pick any of the winners this year.
Thanks to everyone who voted and nominated candidates. Stay tuned for 2020 DevOps Dozen and, as always, thanks for supporting DevOps.com and the rest of the MediaOps family of communities. If you have questions, please write us DD@devops.com.
