AnyChart, one of the world's leaders in interactive data visualization, and its new product GraphicsJS, a powerful lightweight graphics library, received the 2017 Devies Award for the category "JavaScript Technologies".

AnyChart, a global leader in interactive data visualization, won the 2017 Devies Award in the category "JavaScript Technologies". This was announced on Monday during a special ceremony at DeveloperWeek, the world's largest developer conference and expo taking place these days in San Francisco, CA:

The Devies Awards celebrate the best companies and industry leaders for their innovative developer technologies. In particular, AnyChart was honored for creating GraphicsJS, a powerful, free, lightweight JavaScript library for SVG/VML based drawing and animation, publicly launched and open-sourced in September 2016.

In fact, the company has been using GraphicsJS for several years as the graphics rendering engine in its popular charting solutions AnyChart, AnyMap, AnyStock, and AnyGantt. That means the library is already involved in operating data visualization for thousands of AnyChart's customers, including Microsoft, Samsung, Oracle, BP, Bosch, AT&T, Ford, Volkswagen, Lockheed Martin, Reuters, Bank of China, and many other companies and organizations from around the world.
