Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards Voting Status

UPDATE: These are the final results - voting is now closed. Thanks to everyone who voted :-D

The Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards voting will go on until October 15th 2015. If you haven't already, you should go vote now!

Here is the present status of how many votes have been submitted per category, including how many votes the category has increased with since "approximately yesterday" (since last time I downloaded the data, which I plan to do approximately daily ;-), and including how many votes the category has increased with since I started collecting data on October 2nd.

The SQL category clearly has gathered most votes, but since an APEX developer probably also has an opinion in PL/SQL and SQL, but not necessarily vice versa, this could have a natural explanation ;-)

And here is the present status of the individual nominees within each category with these data:

  • Score (points)
  • Total votes
  • Negative votes
  • Positive votes
  • Percent votes that are positive
  • Rank by score
  • Rank by positive votes
  • Increase in score "since yesterday"
  • Increase in positive votes "since yesterday"

These data I calculate via the methods I describe in my posts on Scraping and querying Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards votes Part 1 and Part 2.

I will endeavour to update this post daily until the voting period ends October 15th. If *you* haven't voted yet, go do so!

(There has been some discussion whether or not downvoting is fair in a competition like this. In my personal opinion it isn't, but technically this is a reuse of a voting system for ideas, so this is how it is and we'll live with it. But I think the final judges should perform these queries after the voting is ended.

UPDATE: Now the voting has ended and mostly ranking by score and ranking by positive votes agree. 1st and 2nd place in DB-Design category is switched around, that's the major difference. Heli has 33 more positive votes than Rob, but due to an awful lot of negativity, she is 2nd place according to score. Then there's two small variances within PL/SQL category. By score Patrick and Sean are tied for 3rd, but Patrick has 3 more positive votes. And by score Bill har 10 points more than Kim, but Kim has 5 more positive votes.
