The Jolt Awards have been described as "the Oscar's of our industry". (Really. It's on the front page of the site.) The list of past book winners reads like an essential library for the software practitioner. Even the finalists and runners-up are essential reading.
Release It has now joined the company of finalists. The competition is very tough... I've read "Beautiful Code" and "Manage It!", and both are excellent. I'll be on pins and needles until the awards ceremony on March 5th. Honestly, though, I'm just thrilled to be in such good company.
