The UK’s leading magazine for web designers and developers.
EDITORIAL INTRO FOR ISSUE 209
?We rely on collaborations with all manner of people to make .net the magazine it is today?
Collaboration is a driving force in web design and development, and without it this magazine wouldn?t be worth its weight in beans. (We rely on collaborations with all manner of people to make .net the magazine it is today!)
And it?s with this in mind that we bring you not one, but two fantastic gifts this month. First, we?ve partnered with Carsonified (the lovely team behind the likes of FOWA and FOWD) to bring you more than two hours of CSS3 training from its video courses at Think Vitamin Membership ? highly recommended!
We?ve also had the pleasure of collaborating with the .net Award-nominated design and development agency DeepBlueSky, who built the browser support resource findmebyIP.com. We?ve collated key info from findmebyIP into an A2 poster, which should provide a quick reference for anyone confused by which browser supports what.
Enjoy the gifts, and enjoy the issue!
