2017 for Developers

2017 is drawing to a close, time for a a bit of introspection.

The year was slightly slower than 2016, both from a content point of view (24 articles versus 27 in 2016), and for traffic (~35k visitors and ~85k page views versus 37k/95k in 2016). I guess the former has a direct impact on the latter.

The top article, yet again, is The s_code.js file – Overview! Why, people, do you keep looking at that article? Noone should care about s_code.js anymore! We have tag managers these days! DTM! Launch! Come on!

The most read article from actual 2017 was Debugging 2017.02, followed closely by Debugging 2017.07. Together, those two don’t make up for half the traffic of that s_code.js article, though.

Here’s my first goal for 2018: finally write an article that kicks the s_code.js article off its throne! I mean, seriously, how is that even still at the top?

My second “goal” for 2018 is to write about Launch. I am essentially planning to gut that thing, lay it bare, thoroughly dive into it and report my findings. Anything out of the ordinary that I had done with DTM before, I plan to do it with Launch, and hopefully more.

The third goal for 2018 is to write more than 24 articles. I am planning at least two mini-series this year, so that should be easy.

And that’s it from me.

Thank you for reading, thank you for tweeting, liking and retweeting, and I hope you had as much fun reading as I have writing!

See you in 2018!

(Oh, and even though it says “1st and 3rd Tuesday”, the first article in 2018 will go live on the 9th, not the 2nd. Who reads blog articles on the 2nd of January?)
