Comments
from the
Editor
==========================================================


It is October 31st and for many this is a day of tricks or treats. Halloween
is a time to watch a scarey movie, eat lots of candy, and freely scare the
neighborhood kids. Strangely, that also sounds like many code reviews I’ve been
to.


Speaking of treats, next week I’m off to the DevConnections conference in Las
Vegas. If you are planning on going, drop me an email. It is always great to
meet people in person, so if the chance allows, I’ll see you there!


Until next week…


Brad!
