We announced the winners of our v important, omg-worthy NET/WORK Awards last night. The winners were voted on by you, the people, and, we must say, you created a nice little snapshot of who’s doing solid work in Philadelphia’s tech community.

Let’s get straight to it, shall we?

Best Side Project

(Runner-up: DataRefuge)

Muth thanked SEPTA for making the project possible and proceeded to check IsSeptaFucked.com before he went home to Ardmore that evening.

Best Meetup Organizer

(Runner-up: Karin Wolok, DataPhilly)

Here’s McDougall’s speech that she sent to us beforehand because she couldn’t make it:

I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY. Code for Philly stole my heart, but I’m continually impressed by the cohesion and caliber of Philly’s entire tech ecosystem. Thanks Technically for always telling the story of our community, and thank you to our talented and engaged members, incredible leadership team and advisory board, open data advocates, government collaborators, and sponsors who make Code for Philly possible.

Best Tech Twitter Account

(Runner-up: Mikey Ilagan)

Here’s Ancona’s speech (more news on her staying in Philly to come!):

I’m sorry I couldn’t be there, but want to thank everyone in the Philly tech community for supporting one another — it’s why I’m happy to be staying in Philly.

Best Coworking Manager

(Runner-up: Blake Hunter, Benjamin’s Desk)

Least Worst Recruiter

(Runner-up: Mark Constan, independent)

Best CTO

(Runner-up: Jody Hamilton, ZivTech)

And here’s Shiftan’s acceptance speech that he sent to us beforehand since he couldn’t make it:

Thanks for the great honor, including being included in this list of respected CTOs in the first place. And it is honestly undeserved — being a CTO is a walk in the park when you’ve got the kind of tech team we’ve got at Curalate. 100% of the recognition here should go to the team of AWS assassins, Scala slayers, and Javascript Juggalos that are building the future at Curalate. You the real MVP. And if you’re interested in joining this team of real MVPs, please check out our booth!

Best Office Slack Channel

  • #parking-hall-of-shame, URBN
Laughably shameful.

For example.

(Runner-up: #puns, Benjamin’s Desk)

Best Office Pet

  • “This Is Fine” dog, Brio Solutions
Meme gold.

Meme gold.

(Runner-up: Sammy the Dog, BuLogics)

This Is Fine dog did not attend the NET/WORK Awards.
