Christmas is upon us. Developers are embracing the spirit of sharing their knowledge and wisdom, while taking the opportunity to look back and recollect what 2010 brought us in terms of new technologies and ideas.
A number of "advent" calendars started posting their blog-a-day-till-Dec-24th. Here are some for your reading pleasure while you kick back with a glass of wine by the fireplace:
24 ways (to impress your friends) started back in 2005. It focuses on web design, as well as development topics.
PHP advent is the same but for PHP-related topics (psst, the archives are here: 2009, 2009).
Perl Advent goes way back, to the distant Y2K.
The Web Performance Calendar, started by yours truly last year, is coming back for another go — this time with many more contributors from companies like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo's own Nicholas Zakas, Mark Nottingham, Philip Telis, and Marcel Duran.
HTML5 Advent is the newest kid on the block. It doesn't have the usual article-a-day, but "24 days of killer demos, tutorials, community buzz..."
