I read a lot! Part of this is the nature of my job as, essentially, the Editor in Chief of the Telerik Developer Network and even as co-editor of Mobile Web Weekly. But I also love to read and read a lot of technical articles for developers as part of my daily routine.
In taking a look back at this year, I wanted to recognize what I thought were some of the absolute best blog posts and articles written for developers this year. (And, of course, I am biased, so some TDN articles will make it in.)
P.S. These are in no particular order (actually, that’s not true…they’re basically in reverse chronological order…but not in order or favoritism).
