TeamCity Plugin Contest 2016 Winners Announcement

Greetings, everyone!

We’d like to thank all the entrants for making this year’s contest a success!

You have to know that making the final call on the winners was really tough: many of the contestants came up with good quality plugins, some made more than one submission. Several of the plugins were quite simple but well written, some were much more functional. Some covered popular technologies, others implemented integration with less known tools. However, we are sure each plugin will find its audience.
