John Thomas of Wings-of-Wind.com started a community poll. Originally he was calling it the Spirit of Delphi award, but then it was pointed out that the Spirit of Delphi is awarded by the Delphi R&D team. Well John didn’t let this discourage him, so he renamed it the Delphi Legends Community Award.
John kicked off the poll process by nominating Zarko Gajic of Delphi.About.Com and Peter Below of TeamB. Then the community nominated a number of others, including myself. Just being nominated among such other great Delphi legends is quite an honor.
In the end around 500 developers voted and I received 11% of the votes, ending up with 4th place, making me a Nominee. The other winners are:
- Daniel R. Wolf of Delphi PRAXiS with the Gold award,
- Zarko Gajic with the Silver award
- Peter Below with the Bronze award.
Other nominees include
Also Primoz Gabrijelcic won the nobility prize for encouraging other to vote for Peter Below.
