I’m back for installment three of your weekly community roundup. This is what you’re talking about at the moment…
First up is a big one. After months of blood, sweat and tears, we launched our new logo last week. Alex and Harley not only did a stellar job of the updated logo itself, they also put together a really great article outlining the process that they went through. As is always the way with rebranding, some of you loved it
and some of you didn’t love it quite so much.
Fair enough – you can’t please all of the people all of the time. As long as you still enjoy our content, then we can live with a little negativity.
Unfortunately, due to an Amazon outage on Friday I wasn’t able to run my weekly ‘Caption This!’ here on sitepoint.com but our Facebook friends had a good go at it, and Jon Edwards won my heart with this entry on the right:
Things have been fairly quiet on the Twitter front this week. You must all be too busy working. I tried to stir things up a bit by giving away a free copy of one of our latest releases, jQuery: Novice to Ninja 2nd Ed and the winner was @D_mitar for this tweet:
I need a light comedy book to read on the beach, jquery ninjas sounds like it fits the bill
If Facebook Likes are anything to go by, then your favourite posts of the last couple of weeks have been the hoops that our ex-Online Editor Aaron Osteraas (who left us last Friday for a new job) has been making our Friday wine delivery guy jump through. A couple of weeks ago he had him drawing dinosaurs, and last week things got even sillier. Check this one out.
And on that note I’m going to sign off for the week, but I’ll be back with more community antics next week. Ciao.
