Issue #24 (Poll, Frameworks, Deploy, Media)01/02/14
For the introduction, same deal as last week: No tutorial, but please take part in the one-question poll, if you haven't done so already:
The poll question is:
Would you pay a fee to subscribe to Web Tools Weekly?
There are six possible answers, and I'd love it if most of the 5,000+ subscribers would cast their vote.
See last week's issue for more info on why I'm asking this question (no, I won't be adding a pay model any time soon).
The quick tip intro returns next week. :)
Now on to this week's tools!
