This Week’s Topics






Comments from the Editor

It is hard to believe that it is already
2009. I remember when the book 2001: A Space Odyssey seemed like a distant
future. The follow-up book focusing on 2010 seemed even farther away. In
another year, both dates will be in the history books. Unfortunately, it
looks like our space technology won’t be even close to what either story
suggested.

Here on Earth, however, there is one key thing to note. In 2008,
Codeguru had a lot of great articles published by many of our members just
like you. Some of our top articles of the year include (in no specific
order):


Kudos to these authors for their submissions. These were among the
highest read articles that were contributed in 2008. It will be
interesting to see what topics and authors reach the top in 2009. Maybe
you can even make the list by submitting an article!

Until next week…

Brad!
