Feature code article in Treehouse
I am very proud to announce that my latest code concept, ASK, is the feature code article Easy Ajax with ASK, in the February issue of Treehouse Magazine.
I was actually asked back in Mid-November to contribute, but unfortunately I had too much things going on then, so I didn’t feel I would have the time and the focus necessary to produce something worthy of being in Treehouse. We talked back and forth and postponed it until now, but finally, here it is! 🙂
Part of me is humbly very appreciative of being asked, no less by the extraordinary people of Particletree producing Treehouse, and whose impact on the web developing scene has been tremendous; I think there are few web developers out there, at least of the blog-reading kind, that have never heard of them.
Another part of me thinks I rightly deserve this; during the last seven years I’ve put a vast amount of time into web developing and into learning and trying to become a better and more considerate web developer. To work that hard for something and to get this kind of recognition warms my heart and sends me the message that it was all worth it, it wasn’t a struggle in vain.
Tomorrow I will write a release post offering you the source code and a demo of ASK for you to try out and give me feedback about. However, that post will only be a short introduction, if you want a longer technical explanation as well as getting to know why I made the different choices I did, I strongly recommend to get a hold of the Treehouse Magazine issue (plus the fact that you will then have a day up on everyone else, since a link to the demo is in the article).
Also, nevertheless, if you’re not even slightly interested in ASK, I still recommend picking it up, because, as every issue of this magazine, it’s fascinating.
PS. Yes, apparently I’m being a little narcissistic today. Please let me just have this one, I promise I’ll be back to normal soon… 🙂 DS.
Well done Robert 🙂
I'm off to read it!
I read this last night. Good article!
My PayPal account is pooched because I kept forgetting my password and the system logs those as potential intrusions and now I am locked out and must call PayPal to get it reinstated. Otherwise, I would have purchased a subscription by now.
Good one Robert!!!
The feelings are the same on this side of the table. Without talented people like yourself contributing to the magazine, we would have nothing. So, thanks for being a part of it. Also, good job with ASK. Digging through the source code taught me a thing or two.
inoodle, Jonathan, Jens, Jules,
Thanks a lot! Enjoy!
Thank you, it makes me very happy to hear that! 🙂
I just wrote a post about ASK releasing the code to the public, and I sincerely hope it will help people understand and implement AJAX in a more considerate way.
