Treehouse – not the one of horror

Friday, October 7th, 2005 at 10:32 am

I’ve been too busy this week to actually read the new webdesign magazine released by the folks at particletree. The first issue of Treehouse can be downloaded for free and you have a special offer of the next few issues for 15 dollars.

From a first glance I like what I see, although I am not too good with reading PDFs on this work machine (Thinkpad T40). For some reason I’d prefer a one column version, which could also be great for handhelds.

The content is a good mix of coding tips, best of the web links and interviews with some faces of web design / development. I am not too much of a fan of interviews that are not related to a product release or change, but focused on the person itself. We are web developers, not pop stars or big brother participants. Bad enough that every news agent is stacked with celebrity magazines.

I will buy the issues and see how it goes. A general “thumbs up” to particletree for taking the leap into developing this – it is a lot more work than it looks.
