This Week's Topics

Comments from the Editor

Welcome to the January 20th, 2009 issue of Codeguru's eNewsletter. Today the United States has a new President, but here at Codeguru, we continue with the same leadership! You can expect to get the same great articles, videos, and posts for the next four years and beyond! We will have change, but only in regard to improvements on the site!

If you had a chance to watch the inauguration, then stop by the chit chat forum and let us know what you think! After all, not everything on Codeguru has to be seriousness and code!

Until next week...

Bradley L. Jones
