(San Francisco) April 12, 2001—Winners of the 11th Annual Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards honoring the best software development products of 2000 were announced Wednesday, April 11th, 2001 by CMP's Software Development magazine editors. The awards ceremony was held at the Software Development West Conference and Exposition at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose CA. Co-sponsored by the Rochester, NY-based Jolt Cola, the Software Development Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards are given to products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the difficult task of creating corporate software faster, easier and more efficient. Jolt, "the most powerful cola," is the fabled soft drink used by software programmers to get them through complex development projects.
"Almost all of the important new development paradigms that surfaced in the past ten years—the Unified Modeling Language, open-source software, the Web, and Java—have been recognized with Jolt or Productivity Awards," said Technical Editor Roger Smith. "This years winner's—highlighting trends like lightweight methodologies, support for multiple operating system platforms, and innovative modeling solutions—continue that excellent tradition into a new decade."
Editor in Chief Alexandra Weber Morales adds, "We're pleased with the increasing reader and industry response to this venerable competition, and we plan to keep it evolving and growing. Roger and I also have a ball every year putting on the awards ceremony."
The six categories of tools nominated and chosen by a team of Software Development writers, contributing editors and columnists are Languages and Development Environments, Design and Management Tools, Books and Computer-Based Training, Libraries, Frameworks and Components, Special/Other, and Utilities and Deployment Tools. One Jolt Award and two to three Productivity Awards are given for each category. Jolt award winners receive a coveted trophy: a can of JOLT Cola encased in Lucite.
