Discussions, news and rants from the CTO of DevExpress, Julian M Bucknall

Jolt Awards Productivity Winner

When we entered CodeRush (with Refactor! Pro) to the Jolt Awards this year, we weren't very hopeful. In fact, I'll admit it took us some effort to be enthusiastic and prepare for the entry. Not that we're indifferent about our IDE Tools -- hardly that, good heavens, Mark Miller is always ready to transgress good taste on behalf of them (no, I'm not linking: you're reading this at work) -- but that this was the third year in a row we'd entered the products with nothing really to show for it. We were all of the opinion that CodeRush doesn't really fit into any of the Jolt Award categories (heh, for some reason my fingers want to type Jolly Awards).

Then we heard in February that CodeRush was one of the finalists in the Development Environments category, alongside five others. Five IDEs to be precise. We were like Gimli joining the Fellowship of the Ring, everyone else was bigger than us. Things were looking up [pun intended].

Anyway, to cut a long story short, last night they held the awards ceremony at SDWest. The aforementioned Mr. Miller was our representative, and I understand is very fetching in black tie. We didn't win the Jolt Award in our category, but were a second-place Productivity Winner instead. Awesome!

So it's congratulations to the IDE Tools team. We'll be popping open some champers next time we're all together.

Congrats guys - the only .NET product to win an Award.

IMO 2nd to Suns Java IDE at the Jolt Awards is an epic win.
