101communications Launches New Magazine for Software Developers

Chatsworth, CA—Oct. 3, 2001. 101communications announced today the launch of a new bi-monthly publication targeting developers across multiple languages and platforms. Programmers Report will debut as a January/February 2002 publication and reach a targeted circulation of more than 100,000 corporate and government developers.

Programmers Report will be edited by Jack Vaughan, a computer trade-press veteran with more than 18 years experience. “Programmers Report will incorporate key elements of current 101communications titles, Java Report and the Journal of Object-Oriented Programming, and expand their individual coverage to better reflect the breadth of issues faced by the developer community,” said Jack Vaughan. “In today’s world, developers must be adept at using multiple technologies. Organizations can no longer afford to be dependent on a single technology or supplier.”

Java Report, a monthly publication focusing on Java technology, will publish its last issue in October, while Journal of Object-Oriented Programming subscribers will receive their final issue in December. Current readers and advertisers of both publications will be transitioned to Programmers Report starting with the January/February 2002 issue.

“We are determined to build on the proud legacy of the Journal of Object-Oriented Programming and Java Report to give readers inside information on the latest development technologies,” said Vaughan.

The new publication will be aimed at programmers versed in using a variety of object-oriented technologies to build simple and complex applications. In addition to analysis of the software development field, its features will include “how-to” articles, product reviews, book reviews and code samples. “Programmers Report will provide developers with a single source for extensive coverage of C++, Java, C# and other object technologies used extensively every day by corporate and government programmers,” said Mike Bucken, editorial director of 101’s Software Development Group.

“We strongly believe that both our current readers and advertisers will benefit tremendously from the expanded coverage and reach of Programmers Report,” said Gordon Haight, general manager of 101’s Core IT Group. “Programmers Report reaffirms 101communications’ continued leadership in software development publishing.”

101communications will also launch a software development portal Web site that will include unique content from Application Development Trends, Programmers Report and the archive of Java Report and the Journal of Object-Oriented Programming. The portal has a planned launch date of January 1, 2002.
