Always glad to see my posts appear here. One of the simplest yet biggest joys is seeing people enjoy what I write :)

Congrats everyone who made the list.

It's worth noting that some folks make the list due to controversy. It is what it is.

Making the list was of my goals for the year and I'm happy I hit with a few weeks to spare!

I've started writing up Testing 102. Stay tuned!

When does the week officially start? My code review post went up last Monday and didn't make the cut. Anyhow, really happy for everyone up there especially James post and subsequent app. Always nice making the top 7.

Hey Chris! The week starts Monday - Sunday (GMT Time). We also take into account posts that are published later in the week.

Haha, so I posted at around 9am GMT, does that mean I decided to post right at the end of the previous week? I feel like the algorithm should maybe take that into consideration?

Really pleased and surprised at the positive response to my post. I guess the lesson learned is: if you can't impress people with technical ability, poking fun at recruiters is always a crowd-pleaser.

Odd to see something so silly nestled in there amongst six other useful, insightful posts.

Much love to all the people who contributed!
