CMP's Dr. Dobb's Announces Finalists for the 18th Annual Jolt Product Excellence Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- CMP's Dr. Dobb's today announced the finalists for this year's Jolt Product Excellence Awards. The 98 finalists in 16 categories were chosen by a team of esteemed industry insiders, columnists, and technology leaders.

For the past 17 years, the Dr. Dobb's Jolt Product Excellence Awards have been presented annually to showcase products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. Jolt Cola, the fabled soft drink quaffed by software developers for sustenance during project development marathons, sponsors the awards presentation.

"The Jolt judges have selected these finalists from among hundreds of qualified nominations. The nominees represent a cross-section of innovative tools for every phase of the software development lifecycle," said Amber Ankerholz, Conference Manager for Dr. Dobb's Events. "In the next round of the process, the judges will take an in-depth look at the finalists, examining the standard criteria of audience suitability, productivity, innovation, quality, ROI, risk, and flexibility, but also seeking products that are: ahead of the curve, universally useful, simple yet rich in functionality, or that have solved a nagging problem in their product space."

The awards ceremony will take place on March 5, 2008 at the 21st annual Software Development Conference & Expo West at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

One Jolt Award and three Productivity Awards will be presented in each category.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
