The first day of Summer for those in the Northern half of the planet has arrived which, going on past years, typically means a disturbing increase in the number of developers leaving their desks and heading out into 'sunshine' and 'fresh air'. Whatever.
To combat this disturbing trend we'll be launching another round of progamming competitions: one each for the Java/LAMP developers hiding among us, and another just to whet your programming appetite in preparation for the coming winter months. Remember: from now on the days are getting shorter so stay tuned for the details.
Speaking of competitions and winners and loot and stuff, the best articles of last month have been voted:
