IBM developerWorks Author Achievement Recognition Program

The program in a nutshell


When you participate in the IBM developerWorks Author Achievement Recognition Program (dW author program), you earn an IBM author designation by accumulating a minimum number of publication points and participation credits that are defined for each achievement level. Publication points are a measurement of your overall contributions to developerWorks, and participation credits reflect your presence in the developerWorks universe through other activities.

Here's how it all works:

  1. Sign up.

    Simply register to participate in the program. Registration is very easy and shouldn't take you more than a minute or two to complete.
