Congratulations to Real Software – REALbasic wins Best Programming Language

Code Project has long been one of my favourite sites for example articles, ironically mainly in the MFC space.

I was surprised and impressed to read this morning that it held a Member’s Choice award for the first time and that REALbasic won the Best Programming Language category.

I hadn’t realised that REALbasic users were in the CodeProject community because there are zero articles on there about REALbasic. I guess the awards were publicised and people voted. I’m not disagreeing with the deserved result but I think it is ironic that a site which has a bunch of .Net categories, even listing C++/CLI separately under their language categories, found itself awarding this unknown language. Maybe now REALbasic will appear on there.
