Ahead of the Curve
The Jolt Awards are underway and judging for the first round -- Books -- is heating up.
At the same time, it isn't too early to kick off nominations for the second round -- Application Libraries and Frameworks -- even though the schedule would suggest we'd be ahead of the curve. That's okay. Early is better than late. (And believe me, I know all about that "late" part.)
So if you're using or if your organization has developed an application library or framework that you think is "Jolt-worthy," don't wait -- nominate by sending in your recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org now! And if you want talk with your fellow developers about likely candidates, just strike up a conversation by logging on and adding a Comment below.
Did I mention the new DVD? Just in case...Dr. Dobb's Developer's Library DVD Release 6 is now available. In case you're not familiar with it, the fully searchable DVD includes:
- 21 years of Dr. Dobb's Journal
- 14+ years of C/C++ Users Journal
- 10 years of SysAdmin magazine

Plus a bunch of other stuff -- videos, podcasts, source code, and the like. An all-around handy source of information that helps you stay ahead of the curve.
