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…

Brad!
