JANUARY 5, 2011 - EXPERTS OF THE YEAR

Congratulations to this year's Top Experts and all of the exceptional people that make up Experts Exchange. Without you, Experts Exchange would not be the #1 technology site in the world. While we all know that seeing your name in lights on the Annual Awards page is gratifying to the ego, don't you want something a little more?

The winners of the Sixth Annual Expert Awards will receive a platinum-plated trophy in the spitting image of the hard drive that recorded the first solution on Experts Exchange, back in 1996. As nice as the trophies are, though, they pale in comparison to the thanks we want to give all our Experts for a truly outstanding year!

demazter

Although he had a lot of competition from DrDamnit (easily the most frequently viewed article ever at EE), alanhardisty (whose articles have been used as solutions countless times) and matthewspatrick (consistently high quality), demazter's work that spans all three criteria make him our Author of the Year. His article on migrating to Exchange and Windows 2008 from SBS is the default Internet standard on the subject.

Solutions posted through mobile.e-e.com

BooMod

BooMod first made his mark as a Moderator by developing a couple of programs that helped make Cleanup an organized and consistent system; since then, his work has touched almost every aspect of EE, from the TA consolidation to the newsletter to his current project: protecting the work of EE's members from scrapers. Almost always in the background, his contributions have consistently had a profound impact on the direction of EE.
