I'm thrilled to announce that Jeanne Boyarsky, my wonderful co-author and close friend, has been granted the very exclusive title of Java Champion at QCon today!

What's special about these titles is that Java Champions are community nominated and come from a wide variety of areas. They are chosen by demonstrating excellence in the Java community, often assisting their peers, and being an influential member of the Java world.  Jeanne has done all of these things as a successful author, public speaker, and active member of the online community.

I'd like to wish Jeanne a hearty congratulations!  You do a lot for the Java community, more than can be measured.  You were always a Java Champion to me, even without the title
