This Week's Topics

Comments from the Editor

I'm traveling a bit this week, so a short newsletter. I happen to meeting with one of our corporate Vice Presidents. We'll be discussing some of the changes we need to make to Codeguru. This should be the start of some better things for the site.

I'd like to thank everyone that has provided feedback in the forums. We really do listen and hopefully over the coming year you'll see some great improvements!

Until next week...
