Time to give credit where credit is due.
We know you're out there -- IT leaders and mentors who go above and beyond in reaching out to the technical community to help us spread the word about IBM solutions -- and we want to give you your props. So we're launching the IBM Champion program, recognizing non-IBM employees who go the extra mile in helping us build a Smarter Planet. How? By blogging, posting to forums, speaking at conferences, leading user groups, you name it; there's no shortage of ways you can inspire your peers to explore IBM offerings.
In return, IBM Champions get special recognition and opportunities in IBM communities (such as the "IBM Champion" designation on your developerWorks profile) and at IBM events, along with discounts on IBM conferences, exclusive access to product development teams, and more. Visit our FAQ for more details. If you or someone you know has what it takes to be an IBM Champion, fill out our nomination form today so you can start getting the credit you deserve.
And above all -- thanks! It's folks like you who make the community stronger and the planet smarter.
Until next week,
