The Community Book and Other Interesting Topics

Share this article

Unfortunately I don’t have anything as exciting as breasts to talk about this week, but that’s not to say that there isn’t plenty going on in the SitePoint community.

Our latest course, Practical CSS with Russ Weakley starts today. Those of you that did Russ’s previous course, CSS Live, will know that he is a star and his courses are not to be missed. One of the things that Russ does best is his participate enthusiastically in the course forums, which certainly makes my job easier! In this course you’ll take your basic CSS skills to the next level and apply them to actually building a site.

One of the things that I am especially excited about this week is the Community book project. Submissions are coming in thick and fast, and from what I’ve read so far, we’re going to have a masterpiece on our hands! We have articles that span the full spectrum of all things web, from TCP/IP to SEO. I’ll keep you posted, but you can expect to see something tangible early in the new year, all going to plan.

SitePoint forums

Our Facebook page is looking hot this week with a great biography of our Marketing Guy, Shayne Tilley. Shayne talks about his time with us here at Sitepoint, and gives aspiring marketers some insights into what he does with regard to product development. Next up in our Get To Know Us campaign we have Mark Harbottle, co-founder and branding guru. Check our People tab at the end of the week for Mark’s bio.

The last thing that I want to mention this week is something of great importance. There is just one day left to vote in the 2010 .net Awards. We have been nominated for Community Site of the Year, so if you like what we do, make sure you get in a vote for us! (As a side note, our very talented podcast team have been nominated for Podcast of the Year).

Hot Topics This Week

They are tackling the age-old issue of fonts in the CSS forum this week. How do you force fonts on your users?
