“For our 2011 Community Choice awards, we continued to see a surge in community participation,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro. “Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine and DevProConnections awards programs are unique in that the product-nomination process is open to readers. We don’t just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Instead, the community both nominates and votes for the best products of the year, ensuring a nice breadth of inclusion in the surveys. The winners of these awards are truly the community favorites. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”
