Dear developerWorks accredited authors,

As part of our ongoing site improvement and personalization plans for developerWorks, we are developing a new contributor recognition program that will take advantage of the IBM Open Badge program. If you've not yet used Open Badges, they are an industry-wide standard that allows you to digitally display and share your achievements and technical mettle.

As a result of the change, we are sunsetting the Author Achievement Recognition Program, effective immediately.

We thank you for your participation and continued support of developerWorks and look forward to seeing you in our new program when it launches later this year.

We are still in the early development of this new program and welcome any input or feedback as we move forward.

Please visit Help and feedback and fill out the form for any questions.

What are Open Badges?
