The Jolt Awards: We're Back!
I'm happy to announce that the Jolt Awards are back! Granted in a slightly different format, but the goal -- and the judges and categories -- are the same: The Jolt Product Excellence Awards recognize the most innovative, trend-making, ahead-of-the-curve products. Jolt Award winners are the software products, books and technologies that developers should be using today.
Before going any further, I'd like to acknowledge and thank the Jolt Award judges. In particular, I'd like to thank Mike Riley and Jon Kurz for their perseverance and belief in the Jolt Awards. Other judges include Scott W. Ambler, Andrew Binstock, Robert DelRossi, David Dossot, Gary K. Evans, Roberto Galoppini, Seth Grimes, Jon Kurz, Chris Minnick, Larry O'Brien, Gary Pollice, Roland Racko, Rick Wayne, Peter Westerman, and Michael Yuan. If I left anyone off the list, please accept my apologies.
The first round of Jolt Awards will be on or about the first of August. Between now and they I'll be posting The Plan. Check back here for details.
In the meantime, thanks to all for your support and interest. This is going to be fun.
