Zend Framework Takes Home a Jolt Productivity Award

p. Last night, SDWest hosted the 18th annual “Jolt Awards”:http://joltawards.com/. “…the Oscars of our industry” according to Chad Fowler. Both “Zend Framework”:http://framework.zend.com and “Zend’s DevZone”:https://devzone.zend.com were nominated for Jolt Awards this year. Zend Framework walked away with a “Jolt Productivity Award”, for a project that is still in it’s 1.x version, this is awesome!

p. I’d like to offer a huge round of congratulations to the entire Zend Framework team and all contributors. Since there were only 2 PHP related nominees in a field of 300, it’s a great honor and I know the entire Zend Framework community is beaming with pride.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at http://blog.calevans.com and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
