Looking Back At the Year 2009 and the Year Ahead
Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past ~Henry Ward Beecher
A very Happy New Year 2010 to all of you! We plan to start the first post of this year with a recap of what the site and its authors achieved in 2009. I will also share a few plans that we have for 2010.
Achievements and News @2009
- Our authors, Minal Agarwal, Subodh Sohoni and Shoban Kumar were awarded the MVP title (Most Valuable Professional) by Microsoft for their contributions to the community.
- Suprotim Agarwal, founder and primary contributor of dotnetcurry.com was re-awarded the MVP title by Microsoft.
- One of our resolutions made in the beginning of 2009 was to publish one article every alternate day, and kudos to the team; we have delivered on that! Under all normal circumstances, we promise the same this year. Wish us luck!
- We also introduced articles on new technologies like ASP.NET MVC, .NET 4.0 and jQuery
- DotNetCurry.com scaled new heights in popularity and acceptance. Its visitor base, as of this writing, now stands to 250,000 visitors per month with thousands of RSS subscribers and thousands of registered users.
- Plenty of articles on dotnetcurry.com were accepted and published at www.asp.net as well as www.windowsclient.net.
- Mahesh Sabnis joined us as an author and Satish joined our business team. Abhijit joined our editorial team. We welcome all of them.
- Suprotim Agarwal also released his first eBook on jQuery and ASP.NET
- DotNetCurry.com got into the elite group of the top 50,000 sites at Alexa.com. Way to go! 
What’s New @2010
- New technologies like ASP.NET 4.0, Silverlight 4, .NET 4.0 and VSTS 2010 will be covered this year. We will also focus on covering WPF on this site.
- We got a lot of feedback last year and one of them was to keep password free downloads. The download files are not password protected anymore.
- Malcolm was the first to publish a Screencast for DotNetCurry and we are hopeful that other authors will follow the suit this year. Watch out for many more screencasts this year.
- I hope you all liked the brand new look of dotnetcurry.com. We have now provided more space for the articles and have reduced the widgets on the site, to keep the layout simple.  We are working on providing printer friendly articles too.
Watch out for some new books by DotNetCurry authors this year!
