A New Month: Did-uary

As promised, February is going to start another blogging series for me, and this time, I’m renaming February to Diduary.


There’s a couple of reasons for this renaming:

  1. February was already hard to spell.
  2. All of my posts will be “Did You Know” style developer/technology topics.
  3. I needed a clever, unique word that could be easily found in a search engine.
  4. February is the shortest month of the year 🙂

So, starting on Monday, February 1, tune in each day for a new post on something you probably didn’t know about development and technology. See you Monday!

Also, you can bookmark this page to have an updated list of the articles as they are published. I will be listing them below, with links.
