JAX Innovation Awards to Reward Excellence in the Entire Java Ecosystem!!

Software and Support Ltd have launched a new worldwide award that aims to recognise the spirit on innovation in the Java ecosystem. Winners will be nominated and voted on, from the community, by the community.


Software & Support Media Group, organizers of the worldwide JAX conference series, has launched the JAX Innovation Awards 2011, a new 3-month programme designed to recognise and reward innovation within the Java Ecosystem.

By organising the JAX Innovation Awards, 2011, Software & Support Media offers a vehicle that celebrates and rewards innovation in the entire Java Ecosystem. From today, nominations are open in the following categories:
• Most Innovative Java Technology
• Most Innovative Java Company
• Top Java Ambassador

Speaking on the importance of a reward programme, Software & Support Media publishing director, Sebastian Meyen, comments, “The achievements of the Java Ecosystem are unique in the history of IT. Since it‘s early beginnings in the mid 1990‘s, Java has evolved towards a model of open innovation. Java is not only a technology, but also a room for innovative business. Therefore the JAX Innovation Awards feature more than a single dimension - one rewards the most innovative Java technology, one rewards the most innovative business model in the Java ecosystem, and one is for the most influential ambassador/evangelist of the Java ecosystem”.

The JAX Innovation Awards utilizes a 3-stage nomination, shortlist and judging process. Nominations are collected from across the Java Ecosystem, with companies and individuals free to nominate the people, technologies and companies they feel most deserve recognition for their value to the world of Java. Nominations can be made at http://jax-awards.com/submissions.html, closing on May 9, 2011.

Following the nominations stage, a panel of industry experts will convene to narrow down the nominations to a shortlist of 5 finalists per category. The panel will also determine the winner of a Special Jury Award category.

Finalists will be announced on May 24, 2011, at which point final voting begins online. Worldwide Java communities, organizations, companies and individuals will be invited to cast their votes and determine the winners.

Winners will be announced on June 22 at an awards presentation hosted by JAX Conf, in San Jose, CA. www.jaxconf.com The winner in each category will receive recognition as best-in-class as determined by their industry peers, and a cash prize of $2,500 will be provided to each winner by Software & Support Media.

Article: Q&A with Cyrille Martraire on the Book Living Documentation

Cyrille Martraire argues that we should rethink how we work with documentation when building software systems — we should embrace documentation that evolves at the same pace as the code. In the book, he describes the concepts and ideas that are the base for living documentation and uses practical examples on how documentation that is always up-to-date can be created.
