I just attended the 2007 Jolt Awards at the SD West Expo in Santa Clara.

 

In case you haven’t already seen it, Microsoft had quite a few nominations and received two “Productivity Awards” (honorable mentions), and one Jolt Award!  See below:

 

Jolt Award Winner:

  • VSTS For Database Professionals - Database Engines and Data Tools category (Matt Nunn accepted)

Productivity Awards:

  • Team Foundation Server – Change and Configuration Management  (winner was AccuRev)
  • IronPython – Development Environments  (winner was NetBeans IDE)

There were other tools that won or were mentioned that complement, integrate, or support either Visual Studio or the .NET platform.
