I’m judging at .net Awards 2010

Posted August 25th, 2010 in Press by Damian

Thanks to Dan Oliver and guys at .net magazine for giving me the privilege of being a judge at this year’s iteration of their annual .net Awards. It’s really kind of you.

What are these awards about? Here’s a bit from their press pack:

.net, the world’s best-selling magazine for web builders, has opened voting for its annual .net Awards – a celebration of the very best in web design and development – as organisers hope to beat the 60,000 votes cast last year.

The .net Awards website (www.thenetawards.com) – in association with Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 – is open now for votes in sixteen categories; Awards include ‘web personality of the year’ and ‘innovation of the year’, which sees the controversial Wikileaks (www.wikileaks.com) competing against nominees including Google’s Android 2.2 OS and Adobe’s Flash Player for Mobile.

Held annually since 1998, the long-running .net Awards mix public opinion with those of a leading panel of 100 industry experts, including the likes of Jeffrey Zeldman, Paul Boag and Molly Holzschlag, who deliberate on the final shortlist.

Winners of the prestigious .net Awards 2010 are announced on Thursday, 18th November at a special event in London.

I got published in .net magazine

Posted July 9th, 2009 in Ajax, Press by Damian

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m pleased to announce that an article I wrote has been published in a paper magazine.

The magazine itself is no less than the .net. You can find my article in the ‘technique’ section of issue 191. You can find out what’s in issue 191 here

The article itself is a tutorial on how to put together an Ajax Chat for your website and I’m very proud of it. I will post a PDF version soon.

Stay tuned.
