Vote for Craig!

Ricky Onsman
SitePoint Managing Editor

Craig BucklerThe Urban Dictionary defines “codeversation” as “A conversation revolving around code, or coding standards. This can often get heated and involved, if you’re passionate enough about code.”

The folks at codetogether.org thought this description tied in nicely with their aim of recognizing the people who start and manage great conversations about code. To do this, they started a contest to find the most Creative Codeversationalist of 2013.

It will surprise absolutely nobody that one of the six nominees is our own Lead Writer Craig Buckler.

A chap by the name of Ben nominated Craig, because:

I subscribe to a lot of blogs and typically skim most of them, but I tend to linger on Craig Buckler’s articles on SitePoint. They are usually fairly straight to the point and more relevant to my interests in HTML5 and responsive design than many others that I tend to gloss over.

Good call, Ben!

My own experience is that Craig consistently chooses topics to cover that are right at the edge of what we know and want to know about code, that he covers the gamut of ways in which code influences how we manage our web work, that his articles consistently achieve among our highest pageviews, that he generates comment-based conversations that not only attract the most participants but elicit the most interesting comments and that he draws attention to aspects of working with code that otherwise might get no attention at all.

If, like me, you’re a fan of Craig’s work on SitePoint – and elsewhere – then head on over and cast your vote. The deadline is May 10, so there’s only a few days to ensure Craig earns his rightful title as Creative Codeversationalist of 2013.

    Your writings are well appreciated by many Sitepoint readers, including myself here in Papua New Guinea. Best wishes and hope to see you as a Creative Codeversationalist …and please, keep rambling.

      Thanks Moare. It’s great to hear my articles have a wider appeal than just in the US, UK and Australia.

    Definitely wanted to vote on this one. Craig’s posts are always great value, and they keep me coming back. Keep it up, Craig, and good luck. :-)

      Thanks Ralph. I appreciate the feedback — even after four years and more than 800 articles, it’s never easy to tell if I’m hitting that sweet spot!

  • Robert

    It was really hard to make a choice because I also read all of Andrew Binstock’s articles.
    But I voted for Craig because his articles (and some of their comments) manage to make me participate with a comment more often than Andrew’s.

      Thanks Robert. I’m up against some tough competition, so it’s great to have your vote.

  • Johann Roos

    I’m a grey haired 70 year old AND STILL PRGRAMMING!. Keeping up with the technology needs a lot of learning and adjustment. Craig’s blogs and articles are indispensible in order to keep with the youngsters. Thanks Craig for keeping me on top!!

      Thanks Johann. I don’t think I can classify myself as a youngster, but I hope I’m still able to cope with algorithms and development methodologies at 70!
