With 2023 in the rear view mirror, we still need to take time for one last year end tradition on Today we are recognizing all of our authors as well as those recognized as the Rookie and Author of the Year. Many thanks to all of the authors for their continued contributions and thank you to the community to helping to select the 2023 winners.

We are once again excited to announce the tenth annual Author and Rookie of the Year. In 2020, we made a few changes including splitting the Author of the Year into four categories - DBA, Developer, Business Intelligence and Cloud Professionals. We also included new ways for Authors to garner votes with additional community promotions, impactful ideas and more. Authors that had at least 10 published tips qualified for the Author of the Year and new authors in 2023 that had at least 5 published tips qualified for the Rookie of the Year.

Please congratulate the contenders and winners in the form below! All of these authors deserve significant recognition for all of their contributions. Many of these authors have been contending for these awards for 5+ years. We also want to publicly encourage all of the authors to get out of your comfort zone in 2024 to solve new and challenging problems!
