As Chairman of OpenNTF I would like to thank all of the people who participated in the contest and to IBM Business Partner We4IT for their sponsorship. I would also like to thank IBM's Niklas Heidloff for driving the success of yet another development contest within the community. Ever since I started working with Niklas a few years back, he has always wanted to have a development contest like this. You have all helped to "knock this out of the park (again)" for not only the IBM XPages community but for Niklas.
