Gracias al amigo Ricardo Muñoz(y en forma transitiva a Ariel Sobrino) me entero del resultado de estos premios. Transcribo los ganadores ya que hay una serie de enlaces interesantes de visitar. Que lo disfruten:
What a great response we've had this year - All the votes have been counted and four SharePoint experts from around the globe have awarded their scores.
Just to clarify the scoring system, it follows the Strictly Come Dancing format. The first half of the score comes from the votes cast on the website (amazingly over 6000 unique votes were cast). The finalist who received the highest number of votes in each category were given 5 points, then second highest got 4 and so on. The second half of the score came from four ‘SharePoint Experts’ all ranking each of the finalists in each category from 5 (the best) to 1 (their least favourite). The four scores from the Experts for each finalist were then added together and divided by 4 (number of Experts).
Hope you are following this. Then the score from the voting was added to the average score from the Experts to get a score out of ten for each finalist. In the event of a draw I had the casting vote. Well, they are my awards!
So here are the Winner and Runner-up in each SharePoint category. These companies will all be receiving a special ‘Seal of Approval’ in the next ten days.
