Software products or technologies are to developers as language is to a writer, paints are to an artist, and wood is to a carpenter. They are the instruments used to fulfill a developer's livelihood. Software products can make a job a breeze or cause hours of frustration. Sometimes, you can't live with them, and you can't live without them.
If you participate in beta cycles, or contribute to the software community you may have some influence over the tools with which you work. Many people don't have that luxury. They must work with the products they are given. If you are in that position, here is your chance to voice your opinion of the products at your disposal.
For the first time, Developer.com is presenting a Product of the Year. We will recognize software companies who have the product or technology that excels in their given category. We welcome you; the people who use these products everyday, to help us choose which companies and products should be recognized as best of breed.
We will recognize products in the following categories:
- Technology of the Year
- Development Tool of the Year
- Enterprise Development Tool of the Year
- Development Utility of the Year
- Best DBMS or Related Technology of the Year
- Wireless Development Product of the Year
- Web Service of the Year
- .NET Tool/Add-in of the Year
- Java Tool/Add-in of the Year
The nomination process is now open, and we welcome your input. You are free to nominate products in more than one category. Finalists in each category will be announced at the end of October at which time you will be able to vote for your favorite product of the year. Voting will take place in November. The winners of the Developer.com Product of the Year for each category will be announced in early December.
To participate in the nomination process, go to http://softwaredev.earthweb.com/pyear. Check back to the front page of Developer.com in November for the link to vote for your favorite product or technology of 2002.
