A full decade ago I was a rookie web developer at a small web shop in Madison, Wisconsin. When I left college, all I knew was CSS layouts and confirmation boxes. In short: I was as green as could be, much greener that kids coming out of college today. That meant a lot of searches for solving edge case problems — especially when you consider I needed IE6 hacks in those days. Tired of finding solutions on page 8 of sketchy forums, and tired of being at a job where I needed those fixes, I started the BluDice blog. The name didn’t catch so I changed it to David Walsh Blog.
The more I wrote, the better I felt about myself, my skills, and my contribution back to the web developer community. I quickly found myself in love with MooTools; after writing about MooTools for several months, I was approached by Aaron Newton to join the MooTools team — one of the best moments and decisions of my life.
I couldn’t have made these dreams come true without this blog. I owe this blog everything.
I’d also like to thank my sponsors for believing and investing in me. You’ll never know the impact that support has made for my family.
Ten years. Thank you.
