Dr. Axel Rauschmayer Wins
The last few months have built up to the final poll for the Software Engineering Teacher of the Year. The poll was extremely close for the first few days, with Erik Dietrich in the lead for a while, however many votes came in for Axel later and he ended up with a large majority of the votes (69%), showing just how popular his training, books and talks are.
Axel has been programming since 1985 and developing web applications since 1995. He held his first talk on Ajax in 2006, and has done extensive research into programming language design.
Axel has taught software engineering at the University of Munich and web development as a lecturer at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences.
This year Axel published the book Exploring ES6 on Leanpub.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who voted. I recommend also reading about the runners up who are all excellent teachers with great blogs:
I will be organizing another Teacher of the Year contest towards the end of 2016.
