Update: Nominations close Thursday, Oct. 15.

In fall 2019, announced the inaugural RealLIST Engineers honorees — newsroom-curated roundups of influential software developers and other technologists. The goal was to highlight meaningful contributors to product development and solving the technical challenges at their workplaces who are also committed to bettering their local tech communities.

Across our markets, we highlighted nearly 50 pros. They’re mentors, meetup organizers, company leaders and much more. Check them out:

The RealLIST Engineers is returning for 2020, and we want your nominations for these markets plus Delaware and Pittsburgh. We’re looking to include those who not only commit code, but solve problems and build solutions — and who go above and beyond to guide the next generation of technologists. We’ll aim to include both those who are established and below the radar.

Below, tell us who you think should be on this year’s RealLIST. Submissions will be vetted by a panel of technologists as well as the newsroom. Multiple nominations will not increase the likelihood of being included. You can nominate yourself, as well as anyone you nominated last year who didn’t make the final list.

Nominations close Thursday, Oct. 15.
