The Duke’s Choice Award is dedicated to all members of the Java Community! For the past 14 years, Duke’s Choice Award winners have been announced at JavaOne, the world’s biggest Java technology conference and gathering of Java community members. The Duke’s Choice Award celebrates extreme innovation using Java technology. The primary judging criteria for this prestigious award is innovation, putting small developer shops and individual developers on equal footing with global giants.
All 10 Duke’s Choice Award winners received a free JavaOne full conference pass, a Duke statue, 2016 winner badge, inclusion in Oracle press release and corporate social media programs, and most rewarding of all, community recognition as an elite member of the Java ecosystem. This year’s celebration will be at Duke Café
