Ben, firstly thanks for saying that, really appreciated. You've built a very interesting community here that is satisfying on multiple levels. Firstly it is a community I can tell, it's also very supportive and I'm sure that's down to the hard work of yourselves at DEV and the moderators. Secondly it's very informative.
I'm not going to be writing things aimed at beginners, other people here are doing sterling work with that goal already, but this site is suitable for a wide range of skill levels.
