The Visual Studio Magazine 2017 Reader's Choice Awards Are Out
For the 24th year the readers of Visual Studio Magazine have weighed in with your thoughts on products you love best for the 2017 Reader's Choice Awards.
You shared what tools you rely on day-to-day to get your job done -- along with our favorite Visual Studio IDE, of course!
Across 36 categories, more than 400 products were voted on, with the top three entrants in each category receiving Gold, Silver and Bronze badges, respectively.
Readers voted on solutions ranging from individual component collections to full-fledged frameworks in categories that span the gamut from security solutions to Web hosting to developer training.
We also asked a series of open-ended questions, touching on categories such as the most highly valued development tool, data-centric development tool, mobile dev solution and more.

There's no better source of guidance about tool selection that the opinions of fellow coders.
