Treehouse revised

All’s well that ends well. You can ignore my earlier rant about the editorial cruelties that had been visited upon my article in Treehouse magazine. The PDF has been updated and you can now read A Brief History Of JavaScript as it was intended.

Kudos to Kevin and the gang at Particletree: that was a fast response. As Kevin points out, this was their first issue so it was a learning experience for everyone involved. The lack of communication before publication has been redressed with this speedy post-publication edit.

Thank goodness it’s a PDF magazine and not printed on dead trees.

If you were quick off the mark and you downloaded the original version of the PDF, maybe you can flog it on eBay as a limited edition but personally, I recommend that you just thrash it and we never speak of it again.

If you haven’t downloaded your copy of Treehouse yet, what are you waiting for? It’s a thing of beauty. If, during your perusal of my article contained therein, you find any stylistic or factual mistakes, they are entirely my responsibility.
