    New tutorials site up

    Hi everyone:
    After many weeks of hard work, I'm happy to say the new tutorials site on web coding is now up: http://www.codetricks.com In the coming days I'll be more closely integrating the site with CF. The site will be user powered in the sense that anyone will be able to submit tutorials for consideration to be posted. Please note I will be very picky when it comes to deciding which tutorials get posted. Clarity and quality is critical, as there is nothing more painful than reading a poorly written or impractical tutorial IMO.

    Right there I'm still making structural changes to the site, so please consider the current version a working progress. Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks,
    - George

    Well, you can add my RegExp tutorial if you wish, it's not too bad.

    As for the design, I think it's a bit too boxy. You hide the existence of much free space by changing colours all the time. Also, it's a on the dark side. A design with more "air" would feel much less clogged up.

    Hi liorean:
    Actually, your RE tutorial is awesome. I'm just hesitant on simply duplicating everything on JK over to CT. It would be rather pointless.

    The design should change as time goes by. Most of my time was focused basically on getting the back end right. If the site doesn't fall flat on its face as far as people's reception to it, I'll worry about a better design then.

    I've been thinking of following up my regex article with a string manipulation article for some time now. Maybe I should give it a try.

    I've also been thinking of writing a short tutorial about sending named arguments to a function through object literals...

    Really cool... that's actually really close from what I expected when I opened that thread (without the problems mentionned in the discussion):
    why not add a Post an ASP or PHP script section in CF?

    I'm sure it's gonna be great site and it will probably solve a lot of problems for people wondering how to do some specific things before they even have to encounter problems...

    May I suggest a tutorial that would be nice? The "membres online/offline" issue has been discussed a few times in the ASP forum so that would make a nice one, from cookie check to session.timeout etc...

    It's really cool that you're doing all this George!

    Hi liorean:
    Please feel free to submit anything via the submission form: http://www.codetricks.com/index.php?page=submit One thing I'm still deciding on is the very nature of CodeTricks.com itself. My original idea was not a site on tutorials per say, but more concise, recipe style articles on solving specific problems. That's why the submission page allows you to submit either a "trick (aka recipe)" or the traditional tutorial. However, the more I think of it, the more I think the idea may confuse many people, both authors and viewers, so I may decide to remove this distinction, and simply call everything "tutorials". Not sure yet.

    Another idea I have is creating a category here on CF for facilitate submitting tutorials. I'm sure there will eventually be a category dedicated to CodeTricks.com in some fashion moving forward.

    p.s: Thanks guys for all the comments thus far.

    I'm writing on something like that (well, i was until some other jobs came along).
    It's actualy a tutorial on why sessions shouldn't be used for security or navigation-issues, and the above mentioned are a few reasons why there are better alternatives. I should just find the time to write some democode to make it all a bit more concrete.

    I'm also planning on finishing my 'Practical guide to optimized db-design'

    But my stuff tends to get kinda long. Is CT more targetting the 5 seconds kinda script-market ?
