Conclusion: Recognizing Geeky Excellence
As we said in the beginning, there is no single factor that indicates developers love for any particular technology, nor is there a single reason why developers love these technologies in the first place. These technologies cover many different aspects of the software development market, and this awesome brew of JVM languages, IDEs, app servers, build & productivity tools are all celebrated choices of geeks…
And on that note, RebelLabs is happy to announce its own annual Geek Choice Awards to recognize technologies like these!
Some technology awards are based on submissions, which means the outcome is greatly determined by the number of incidental supporters that cast votes during a specific time period. We think it’s better to already be awesome and then receive the recognition of an award for no reason other than to say “Thank you for making the software game brighter!”
So to kick off the very first Geek Choice Awards, we’ve decided to give an award to each of the technologies covered in this report. We’ll be announcing it more loudly in conjunction with the folks we talked to in this report later on, so stay tuned for more from us on that. Got a technology you think rocks and should be considered for an award next year? Let us know in the comments section below, or by tweeting us @ZeroTurnaround.
