Jolt Awards: And the Round 2 Winners Are...
Round 2 of the Jolt Product Excellence Awards in the App Libraries and Frameworks category is complete and the winners are.... wait a minute, we need a drum roll, please. There, that's a little better.
Telerik's Premium Collection for .NET is this year's recipient of the Jolt Product Excellence Award in the Application Libraries and Frameworks category. As Jolt Awards judge Robert DelRossi explains here Telerik's library is both deep and wide. It's deep in that the components included deftly handle a significant number of common developer needs. It's wide in that the covers the range of Microsoft platforms including ASP.NET, Silverlight, Windows Forms, and WPF. Telerik rounds the package out with additional libraries for report generation, object relational mapping, and code analysis. Congratulations Telerik.
Also in the Application Libraries and Frameworks category, /n software's Red Carpet Subscription is one of two recipients of a Jolt Productivity Award. As Jolt judge Mike Riley is quick to point out in this report /n software's selection is a smart choice to consider if you have mission-critical cross-platform software projects that rely on secure business processes.
The other Jolt Productivity Award in the Application Libraries and Frameworks category goes to JUCE, short for "Jules' Utility Class Extensions" -- a C++ class library for developing cross-platform applications. And, says judge David Dossot in his report, "cross-platform" includes the iPhone.
Congratulations to all of the winners in Round 2. Due to the high number of quality software tools nominated, the judges had a tough time in evaluating and selecting the winners. So thanks to the judges for a lot of late nights.
Looking ahead, judging is already underway for Rounds 3 and 4 -- Mobile and Web Development and Development Environment, respectively. Which means it isn't too soon to begin the nomination process for Round 6 -- Testing and Debugging Tools. If you have a deserving product or know/use one, send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org right away!
