‘x’ things you didn’t know about JavaScript

Posted in Web Development on April 25, 2007 by Shaun

A friend of mine has been posting up some JavaScript entries on his blog recently and I highly recommend a visit. We are currently evaluating Ext JS library at work and a couple of us are brushing up our JavaScript. This post on ThinkSharp has some great info in it. He’s updating that post regularly with new additions so keep checking back to see if there’s something you didn’t know before.

Free Copy of pkware SecureZip up for grabs

Posted in General Blah! on April 25, 2007 by Shaun

pkware are giving away free personal licenses of their SecureZip application. No catch either.
SecureZip allows you to secure messages and attachments in Outlook protecting your files being stored or transfered.
You need to visit their site and input your email address to get a message with your download link but it’s a free license and not trialware. Cool!

Take the Web Survey

Posted in Web Development on April 25, 2007 by Shaun

A List Apart has a web survey up which they are using to get a picture of the web development industry. In their own words:

The information youve so generously shared with A List Apart will help us form a picture of the ways web design is practiced around the globe. We hope that making this data available will have a positive effect on best practices and employment, and will enhance public understanding of, and respect for, our profession.

I think it’s a great idea, there is a chance you might get a prize if you submit your name and email at the end of the survey. Either way its a great idea and will be interesting to see the shape of the web design industry today. So if you are involved in web development on any scale, fill out the survey and lets see what the results come out like.
