Press Room

We just relaunched SitePoint.com, and it is beautiful!

2nd August 2016

Melbourne, AUSitePoint, one of the world’s leading resources for Web developers, Designers and Entrepreneurs and an Alexa top 700 global website, is today proud to announce the re-launch of the SitePoint.com network.

Melbourne tech company SitePoint knows a thing or two about incubating new ideas.

Eight years ago, SitePoint spun out design content marketplace 99designs. Now the world’s largest online design marketplace, 99designs has raised $45M in funding and is eyeing a possible ASX IPO.

The following year Flippa.com was also spun out of SitePoint and is now the #1 marketplace for buying and selling websites and domains, with over $175M in sales.

Most recently, Hired.com and PromisePay.com, have been major success stories for SitePoint founders Mark Harbottle and Matt Mickiewicz, raising $70M and $10M respectively.

And today the new SitePoint.com is launched, bringing the best of SitePoint together into one more integrated platform – articles, video courses, books and tutorials, References and the SitePoint community, plus offerings from partnerships with Microsoft, Atlassian and others.

SitePoint Announces Editorial and Educational Advisory Board

25 February 2015
“The SitePoint team spends an increasing portion of each day engaging with our community. Whether through reading article comments, forum posts, support requests, or questions and comments on Learnable, our learning platform, we constantly seek to better understand the web development and design community so that we can continue to design innovative content and products that make an actual difference in your work.

Even with all of these efforts, we knew that there was a subset of our community, the time-pressed global innovators and thought leaders, who would bring additional viewpoints based not only on their personal experiences but also on what they have learned from their interactions with hundreds of others they have met while working, writing and speaking at global conferences. When we sought a way to include their voices, the Advisory Board was born.”
