The finalists have been chosen for the Best of Tech•Ed 2008 Developer Awards presented by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro® and SQL Server Magazine®.
One name that made list that we are all familiar with is Telerik's Sitefinity CMS. It was named as one of four finalist for the Developer Tools category.
Telerik is a provider of developer tools and components for .Net. Their Sitefinity CMS product has been designed for the both the developer and the end user. According to Telerik CEO Vassil Terziew, they have worked hard to provide a product that includes a comprehensive development platform for developers, but is still easy to use.
Their hard work seems to have paid off. Still, they are up against some pretty stiff competition including the popular NetAdvantage Suite from .Net Infragistics, Intercept Studio's AVIcode and JNBridgePro's JNBridge.
Have a look at who else made the list from the 65 products and services submitted for the contest and stay tuned on June 6 for the big announcement of the winners.
