It's that time of year again as web enterprises large and small hope to see their name in lights in this year's CODiEs (news, site) nominations.

Who Codes the Best?

Now in its 25th year, the CODiEs represent the best in development across the spectrum of applications, services, utlities and platforms. With awards across business, education and digital content categories, there is a huge array of talent on show.

With the finalists announced, it is now up to the judges to review and argue the case for the best of the best. Out of the 50-odd categories, which cover just about every aspect of the Web, we'll take a sneak peek at those closest to our hearts. The winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 25 at the CODiE Awards Luncheon, during the SIIA All About the Cloud conference.
