Best 3$ spent in a long time
Last week I bought the November issue of Treehouse magazine, coming from the people of Particletree, and I have to say it was the best spent three bucks in a long time! I instantly had to read it from cover to cover.
It starts off with two very interesting things: An
The magazine goes on with some other interesting interviews and articles, where I really liked the Dead Poets Society feeling I got from the interview with, amongst many other things, teacher Lisa McMillan. Alex McClung also had an interesting article about writing accessible HTML code in his piece Understanding Section 508 (although he manages to call the
alt attribute for
alt tag once… :-)).
Basically, a very recommended read altogether. I think the magazine will appeal to people of all kinds of experience and interest working with the web. Go read now!

Hurray – I'm not alone 😉
Thanks for the recommendation – I'll go and buy my self a virtual copy…
I noticed in the first issue a lot of the articles (while good) had been recycled, I'd seen them on the contributors' blogs or varying other places. I'm hesitant to fork over cash for old content. Did everything in this issue seem new to you?
Ha ha! 😀
I hope you will like it.
Yes, everything but two pieces in the Digest section were new (these articles have been on the Particletree web site and are also available as a free PDF download); 10 Tips To A Better Form and 4 Layers of Separation.
I haven't seen any of the other articles elsewhere, and especially not the <code>addEvent</code> and Peter-Paul Koch interview that had the biggest attraction on me.
Thanks, Robert, I'm sold. I'm interested in the Lisa McMillan article. If the next issue is good too I'll definitely get a subscription.
I hope I didn't trick you now! 🙂
Lisa was definitely inspiring, so I think you won't be disappointed.
I'm just waiting to receive my substitute credit card (old one got screwed up, getting a new one) to buy this issue AND an avalonstar's tshirt. 😀
And i'm sure the guys over at particletree (and the authors) appreciate you mentioning this. 😉 hehe
Oh, so you're a fan of Bryan's? Nice. 🙂
And yes, I think they appreciate this. 🙂
Who isn't? 😉 I know you read his last post… (saw your comment) How can you not buy a tshirt? And it looks great as well! Great work by Kyle. 🙂
To be honest, I read it after your comment. 🙂
I've spoken to Bryan once (over IM), and he seems like a very nice and talented guy. However, I'm not a frequent reader. At least not yet… 🙂
You should Robert. 🙂
At least if you need a good laugh.
Yes, it seems like that! I think I need to give it a try then… 🙂
And yes, I always need a good laugh!
