    I just downloaded it and will be “thumbing” through it shortly. Looks like it’ll be a slick web development mag.

    Hey fellas! I’ve been reading you since you joined 9RuLz ;) Brilliant writing, complicated ideas wrapped in user-friendly words!

    I’ll be reading the first edition!

  5. Mom/Dad Campbell · 5 years ago

    Another proud day in our lives. Great work, now go and get some rest!

  6. Shaun Gummere · 5 years ago

    Nice work — well done!

  7. anon · 5 years ago

    Just downloaded the 1st issue. Can’t wait to get my eyeballs on it. Looks great! Thanks.

  8. Rimantas · 5 years ago

    Having more meaningful name for download file instead of file-down.php.pdf would be even more user-friendly :)

    The first issue is really cool.

    I’m thinking about buying a 6 month subscription but before I do want to know how many issues that will cover. Is it going to be monthly/ weekly (probably not :) )/ quarterly… or what?

  10. Chris Campbell · 5 years ago

    Thanks for the feedback everybody.

    Ben, there will be a new issue released once a month.

    Rimantas, I thought we named it Treehouse10/05.pdf or something similar, but we’ll check on that.

    Very nice magazine, but who is Dan Cenderholm? :)

  12. Neil Ford · 5 years ago

    Just great.

    Thanks for the free issue. How long is the 6 month subscription offer open for?

  13. Chris Campbell · 5 years ago

    Glad you enjoyed it, Neil. The 6 month subscription will be available for the rest of this month.

  14. Jason Huddy · 5 years ago

    Mouth watering design, extremely thought-provoking. Bravo!

  15. Justin Lilly · 5 years ago

    Thank you. I would take this time to copy & paste this for a few thousand lines, but I’m sure your buffers would reject my post long before I was ready to stop. This has honestly brought a smile to my face and some activity to my brain.

    Thanks for the unexpected traffic from your devel web-zine. The whole bit about how others have “implemented their own forms of degradable ajax - the lack of documentation is discouraging”.

    That’s all about to change on my site ;) It almost comes off as a negative vibe on my work in general and I hope you can at the least make an exception in your next issue to note that my ajax contact form was more or less ‘spur of the moment’ without intentions to document it. If it was a script that I was passionate about ‘releasing’ - there would be very well documentation. For instance my work on “Sweet Titles” - shows step by step what I went through in the development process along with many user contributed comments.

    all the best, Dustin Diaz

  17. Ryan Campbell · 5 years ago

    Dustin - I linked to your article because I like what you are doing with Ajax. There were no intentions of sending a bad vibe. In fact, when I was trying to create a good method for degradable Ajax , I came across your site and was impressed, but I left wishing I knew how you did it. I understand you don’t have time to fully document everything you do, and that is understandable. Again, sorry to have offended you.

    Contact me through email and we can talk about setting the record straight in the magazine or on the site.

  18. Shaun Andrews · 5 years ago

    Great job guys, I’m just looking through it now. I’m liking it so far, and theres a good chance I’ll get a subscription, but I need to know why my $15 will get me for 6 months. 6 issues? 2 issues? 3 issues?

    By the way, the quote in the code cover page is awesome!

    Good luck with everything guys!

  19. Chris Campbell · 5 years ago

    Glad you’re enjoying the magazine and the quote, Shaun. The 6 month subscription will be one issue a month or 6 issues total.

  20. Jim Amos · 5 years ago

    Good start guys, but why only this tiny mention of the forum. You don’t want anybody to find it? Of course you have a nice big discussion link in the pdf, but then a lot of people probably print it instead of reading on screen.

  21. Chris Campbell · 5 years ago

    You’re right, Jim, and that’s definatly something we’re trying to work on.

  22. bill campbell · 5 years ago

    Chris, Ryan and Kevin

    Just got around to looking at your site and the attached comments. Not fully sure I know what you are doing but the comments show people out there appreciate it. Hope those subscriber calls are flowing in. Best wishes to all and good luck with Treehouse.

    Can you explain what will we find in your magazine that we won’t on this site?

  24. Kevin Hale · 5 years ago

    Sure Kamil, there are only three articles from this web site that reappear in the magazine and you can find them in the digest section at the end of the magazine (and even those articles are updated with new information). Everything else is new. That means 3 new features (maybe more depending on the submissions for the month, 3 new interviews, 3 book reviews, best of the web links for each section (programming, design, business), a cartoon, 9rules news and a marketplace section to find and advertise jobs.

    Take a look at the free first issue to get a better idea.

  25. Kamil T. · 5 years ago

    Now I am totaly convinced :) Thanks.

    P.S You have most stunning layout I’ve seen recently. It’s perfect.

  26. Albert P. · 5 years ago

    Congrats for this new baby! Amazing stuff there: great content + great design.

    I wonder what tools do you use to make this magazine (I’m astonished)…

    Anyway, thx for the 1st issue.

  27. Chris Campbell · 5 years ago

    Thanks Kamil and Albert. I’m pretty sure Kevin just used InDesign and Photoshop for the magazine. We’ll have a Treehouse Magazine website up shortly and will post some tips on creating PDF’s.
