@Testimonials by our @Annotatiomania @Champions

Alexandre Grison, Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2016

@algrison, @Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2016

One can't disrupt the whole industry without annotations. And then, our company created @DisruptIndustry.
Antonio Goncalves, Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2015

@agoncal, @Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2015

As you know, Java 8 brought @Repeatable annotations. This means that I've migrated all my imperative loops to @Repeatable and now support looping up to 1000 iterations. I love looping through annotations
Roberto Cortez, Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2014

@RadCortez, @Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2014

Thanks to the recent developments in Java EE, I've successfully started a new business selling QW@RTY keyboards. Enterprise professionals can get 3 for the price of 2!

@Gregor_Riegler, @Annotatiomaniac of the Year 2013

As professionals we care for what we do, and we always strive for the best. There is no room for mistakes, no room for bugs. Just recently, we have reduced the errors in our code by ~60% using a brilliant invention: The @CatchNullPointerException Annotation.

You can continue writing annotations, of course. Or, you get back in control of your SQL with jOOQ.
