Dierk König, author of the best-selling "Groovy in Action" book, received the prize in the name of the Groovy community, after having presented several sessions on Groovy at this conference. Dierk took a picture of the prize if you want to see what it looks like. 

This award proves how innovative, creative and influential the Groovy project is for the Java community. After a 1.0 release this year, and a book, with IDE makers working on IDE plugin support for the language, with many companies betting on Groovy for writing business rules or for scripting their products, with dedicated news sites and feed aggregators, with dedicated conferences and tracks, and with over 10 sessions about Groovy and Grails at the upcoming JavaOne, Groovy stands out of the crowd and proves it's a very successful and mature project.
