Sue Spielman just called. Apparently the Pragmatic Starter Kit just won a Jolt Productivity Award. I’m blown away: we had some stiff competition, and the books haven’t been out that long. I’m thinking that the judges were probably thinking what we’re thinking: these kinds of basic skills are becoming crucially important if we’re to keep software development competitive in this country.
Anyway, a big “thank you!” to everyone involved, and congratulations to the winners.
