What’s useful? You tell us. As a first stab at it, in this issue you’ll find stories about hardware platforms local developers are writing for, about local encounters with web services creation, about methodologies favoured by local developers, about what’s hot in the local job market and about local responses to issues like software patents.
I make no apology for going overboard on use of the word local. That’s the ingredient we figure is going to ensure our relevance to you. After all, developers know better than anyone that the web is an abundant source of information on anything related to IT.
Where the web is weak, however, is that it’s not particular to our part of the world. That’s where we come in. We plan to deliver content that, through its local coverage, helps you get on with writing software.
If bribery is required to get you to tell us what you want, here’s the deal. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org suggesting a tagline to replace this issue’s “herding cats” slur — and any other comments you care to make — and one lucky correspondent gets a copy of Stealing the Network — How to Own the Box, published by Syngress.
