2001 Readers' Choice Awards

2001 Readers' Choice Awards

The Best of the Year Are Here!
Once again ColdFusion Developer's Journal is delighted to announce its ColdFusion Readers' Choice Awards. For the second year in a row we're proud to be the only publication to present such awards. CF developers and their companies are finally being acknowledged for their product design and excellence. It's recognition that we at CFDJ feel is long overdue and well deserved.

How We Did It...
Our readers nominated products in 15 categories; we then put them up for vote on the CFDJ Web site. The response was immediate and vocal. No one ever said that the CF professional was shy or without an opinion! On the contrary, our savvy readers displayed once again that they keep their ears to the ground when it comes to trends and leading-edge product developments. They keep us on our toes, too, informing us about what they feel truly merits the CFDJ seal of approval. These awards are merely an extension of ongoing dialogue. The stuff either works or doesn't. Period.

Free of Outside Influences
It's out in the field that a product earns its stripes. That's why we created the ColdFusion Readers' Choice Awards. You know that when a product and/or company displays the award, they have passed a rigorous and painstaking inspection of their product or service. Free of outside influences, the awards are a true reflection of what ColdFusion developers are using.

Congratulations!
Congratulations to all the category winners and finalists! Many thanks to the readers of ColdFusion Developer's Journal who made these awards possible by casting their vote on our Web site during the past few months. These awards are the only ColdFusion awards in the industry, and they are given to products nominated and selected by the largest number of professional ColdFusion developers ever assembled for such a purpose.

Once again, congratulations! SYS-CON Media wishes each of these companies and its employees continued excellence in the software industry. Following are the products that you, our readers, selected as our second annual ColdFusion winners.
