Palo Alto, CALIF. — DevX.com Inc. ( http://www.devx.com ), a leading online resource for the global application development community, launched the DevX Source Code Library, designed to be the ultimate resource for developers searching for a key piece of code for their programming projects. The library – with a highly evolved architecture that allows keyword searching or category browsing – is free and open to the public.
“This is the latest in a number of site enhancements we have put in place to provide a one-stop-shop for corporate developers who need crucial content and tools to do their jobs effectively,” said Peter Horan, DevX.com Inc. CEO. “Some sites give access to code of unknown quality, posted by anonymous users. Through the library, developers working in variety of programming languages can now quickly and easily find thousands of expertly written code routines that have been vetted and selected by DevX staff and its advisory board.”
Associated with many of the entries in the code library is the DevX trove of technical articles, including archived articles from Fawcette Technical Publications’ ( http://www.fawcette.com ) leading development magazines. The library’s search feature indexes the articles alongside the code routines and sample applications, and categorizes them so users can find routines quickly. The DevX Source Code Library’s specialized search functionality was developed for the company by Mohomine Inc.
DevX is the category leader in its space, with 2.5 million unique visits per month (Nielsen I/PRO DevX.com network audit for July, 2000), 350,000 registered email users and 8,000 paid “Premier Club” members.
