VANCOUVER, British Columbia – June 3, 2002 – ActiveState is pleased to announce the second annual Programmers' Choice and Activators' Choice Awards. The awards honor the unsung heroes who *actively* contribute to open languages and display excellence in their programming efforts. This year we're expanding the categories to include each of our key technologies: Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, and XSLT. The Programmers' Choice recipients are nominated and chosen by members of the programming community – like you. Know someone who's really made a difference using these languages? Tell us about them! We'll also be acknowledging our personal favorites with the Activators' Choice Awards. While you're busy voting for your favorites our development team will do the same, selecting one deserving programmer in each language. Get out the vote and stay tuned! Nominees will be announced July 2, 2002. Perl, PHP, Python and XSLT winners will be announced at OSCON July 23, 2002. Tcl winners will be announced at the Tcl conference in September.
