DevProConnections Community Choice Awards let the community nominate and vote for their favorite software products. Any product is eligible and product categories span the software industry. In the 2011 Community Choice Awards, Kentico CMS was awarded a gold medal in the Best Forum Application category and a silver medal in the Best E-commerce Application category.

The silver medal in the Best E-commerce Application category confirms that the solution is highly popular among its users,” said Petr Vozak, Technical Leader at Kentico Software and the main person behind the E-commerce module.

The Community Choice Awards are truly community-driven, with both nominations and voting left to members of the DevProConnections community rather than to a jury of chosen individuals. This ensures that the awards really reflect how products are perceived by the people using them and provide a relevant comparison of products nominated in individual categories.

“For our 2011 Community Choice awards, we continued to see a surge in community participation,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro. “Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine and DevProConnections awards programs are unique in that the product-nomination process is open to readers. We don’t just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Instead, the community both nominates and votes for the best products of the year, ensuring a nice breadth of inclusion in the surveys. The winners of these awards are truly the community favorites. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”
