You've voted and we're stunned!

ASP.NET Team Blog
25 April 2008

I’d like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you out there for voting in the asp.netPRO Magazine Reader's Choice awards. We submitted our ASP.NET tools in eight separate categories. Today, I learned that we have won nine awards in all! Not only did you help us win every category we'd entered, but you'd also helped carry DXperience over the finish line for the Best Product of the Year award!


Best Add-In   CodeRush for Visual Studio .NET  
Best Charting & Graphics Tool        XtraCharts Suite  
Best Component Set   DXperience  
Best Grid   ASPxGridView  
Best Navigation Suite   ASPxNavBar  
Best Online Editor   ASPxHTMLEditor  
Best Printing/Reporting Tool   XtraReports Suite  
Best Scheduling/Calendar Tool   ASPxScheduler  
Product of the Year !!!   DXperience  

The community that has built up around here has also amazed me. So, thank you very much! Jeff put together a little video collage for you. And stay tuned, because there’s more coming.


And now a few words from the CTO...

Yeah, we're saving on bytes and hence money in our Community Server database by me appending my thoughts to Mehul's post. Well, you know, the champers does need to be purchased, suitably chilled, and then most boisterously quaffed.

When Ray phoned me with the news I couldn't believe it. "Won?" said I. "Yes, won." "All of them?" "Yes, all of them." "Not second place, or honorable mention, or thanks for showing up, or anything like that?" "Are you an idiot or something?" he said, "we came first. That's what 'won' means." "Oh, won. Right you are then." was my final riposte, which as you can see was pretty pathetic. It's taken a little time to sink in, but I'm still a bit gobsmacked by it all.

As Mehul said, we came first in every single category we entered, all eight of them, and then in addition we carried off the Product of the Year award. And obviously we couldn't have done it without you, our loyal customers, voting en masse for the products you use every day. And guess what? We're not finished with them: we have lots of new features and new functionality and new products to bring to market. This industry is not a static one and we as a company, from top to bottom, have to continually innovate, surprise and entrance you, and just get on with the sheer hard work of being even better and having even more desirable products in a month's, three months', a year's time. So, if you don't mind, enough with the celebrations, but we've got a job to do.

Oh, is that my glass? Cheers!
