SonarSource is a winner of the 2009 Innovation Award organized by the Open World Forum (OWF). The jury acknowledged it as one of the world’s most promising start-ups and praised especially its mission, to make code quality management accessible to everyone.
OWF’s annual award is open to all Open Source projects and solutions getting ready for commercial launch or already on the market. The jury is looking at those projects and solutions most likely to have a significant impact on society and on the marketplace.
Note that Sonar is now SonarQube.
