Java Champions

The Java Champions are a select group of passionate Java technology and community leaders sponsored by Oracle who are nominated and selected by Java Champions.


About Java Champions

Java Champions come from a broad cross-section of the Java community. They are leaders; candidates are leading Java-related projects, JUG communities, and so on. They are technical luminaries; the candidate should be a Java engineer or architect who is relatively senior and has lots of experience. Java Champions are independent-minded and credible. They are also involved with applications of Java Technology or some humanitarian or educational effort openly available to the Java community (vs. a company-proprietary or government-classified project).

Java Champions are also able to evangelize or influence other developers through their own professional activities (via consulting, teaching, writing, speaking, etc.). They have the opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and direction that will help Oracle grow the Java platform. This interchange may be in the form of technical discussions and/or community-building activities with Oracle's Java Development and Developer Program teams.


How are Java Champions selected?

Candidates are nominated by Java Champions and selected by Java Champions through a peer review process. If you are a Java Champion and have identified a candidate based on the guidelines above, please nominate them via this form. Please read the information there and follow the guidelines carefully. Please note that Oracle employees are not eligible.

Java Champions are an independent group who use a consensus review process to select new members. All communication and discussion are conducted via the Java Champions mailing list.
