The magazine will debut in January with a controlled circulation of more than 100,000 corporate and government developers. It will incorporate key elements of existing 101 Communication titles: Java Report, which publishes its last issue this month, and the Journal of Object-Oriented Programming, which is folding in December. Current subscribers to those titles will receive Programmers Report.
The new publication will provide analysis of the software development field and 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.
101communications also will create a software development portal that will include content from Programmers Report, Application Development Trends and the archive of Java Report and the Journal of Object-Oriented Programming. The portal is scheduled to debut Jan. 1.
