Monthly Competitions

Each month we pick the top dozen articles, tips and blogs in various categories based on the votes they received during the month, check them over, then produce a list of the top 10 for you to do a final round of voting in order to pick the best of the best. For us this is a chance to read the best of the best, and voting for them forces us to read some pretty amazing content.

We asked you for your thoughts on how you'd like this to change this and the results came back with a resounding "Keep it how it is!". We will, and we won't.

Starting this year we're going to expand the monthly competition to include a runner up category as well as a winner, and we'll be replacing the "overall" category with "Everything Else", meaning the top articles not in the main categories. The monthly competition is to reward and acknowledge the authors for their hard work and to showcase our amazing collection of quality articles and so the more authors we can showcase the better. There's some serious talent out there!

And speaking of talent, the best of the best from last year are:

Android: CraigDJ Android vs. CraigDJ
C#: S. M. Ahasan Habib Sexy C#
C++: Volynsky Alex Quick start unit test - How to start working with the Google C++ Testing Framework in less than 10 minutes
Database: Sander Rossel Querying SQL Server 2012: Part 1

Mobile: Khademul Basher Apply Here Map in Windows Phone HTML5 Apps
