Happy birthday to dW.<div>&nbsp;</div> It's been a great job for 9 years, with the users and the staff being the best part. Using the forums to answer user questions and get a sense of who uses our site is consistently interesting and fun. And i appreciate the humor I've seen from our users. I mention that because while the dW staff serves the developer and technical community, we are also part of that community and sharing a shared sense of humor regardless of company or effort is very reassuring. <div>&nbsp;</div> Looking forward to another 10 years of serving up the piping hot technical content our users need. <div>&nbsp;</div> Thanks for your support. <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div>

Happy Birthday developerWorks. . Usage of IBM developerWorks started with a query I had and the co-incidence landed me onto this more so often for the knowledge put forward to you in such a way that it helps you work, understand and learn. Favorite things surely would be each new topic started here. Wonderful work. . Thanks. . <div>&nbsp;</div> Shwetha

Happy b'day dW! You've brought us a decade of grrrrrrrrrrrreat technical articles and tutorials that have helped us create wonderful Web interfaces and applications, and you've also published fun LOL columns for a smile. I remember creating my first Robocode tank, getting clobbered in the arena, and limping back to my dW journal issue to study up on the "cloak and turret" secrets from the Robocode masters.<div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> dW continues to provide an amazing set of robust, deeply technical set of resources (articles, forums, mydW, and more) for developers. Good show, dW, and keep up the good work! :-)

OK, so I am a few days late. What is a few days in the span of 10 years, though? I am so proud and pleased to be a member of developerWorks. And I heartily congratulate the whole team, both past and present, for making dW and this milestone so meaningful. Thanks for the memories, the learning, the education, the experience, dW. Happy 10th Birthday!

It's been quite a ride! What began as a small site -- driven by a small team -- has certainly grown. However, the core values still shine through 10 years later: Relevant, timely, and polished developer-targeted content. To be sure, the world and its technologies are changing at a blinding pace. But I hope we never forget that the quality of our content has kept readers coming back, and will likely keep them coming back for another 10. Happy Birthday dW!

Happy Birthday developerWorks!! Although I've been around developerWorks less than a year, I got the chance to learn a lot..That's small compared to the service dw extended towards the community all these years..Keep the good work going!

Many many happy returns of the day ;) ;).<div>&nbsp;</div> Wow, 10 yrs! Time passes quickly, it seems like yesterday when I had joined developerWorks.<div>&nbsp;</div> Great to see that Dev works has not just sustained thru' these 10 years, but leaded the way, in terms of content, tools and technologies used, etc.<div>&nbsp;</div> With plethora of information available online, I have mostly referred to developerWorks, knowing that what I get here is most 'authentic' and 'easy' to comprehend, besides the latest in technology(ies) being always available here, with no bias...<div>&nbsp;</div> Proud to be @developerWorks!!!<div>&nbsp;</div> Varun
