August 2016 Edition

Howdy from all the CodeRanch staff, and welcome to the August edition of the Journal.


W H A T ' S . N E W?

Paul Wheaton, the Trailboss of CodeRanch and owner of Permies projects released a 'Better Wood Heat: DIY Rocket Mass Heater Videos' 4-DVD set.

Haven't heard about the Livecoding.TV? CodeRanch started collaboration work to integrate them into the Ranch forums. Soon... Many professional engineers, CS students and hobby coders who like broadcasting their projects will be able to use CodeRanch facilities to embed live streams and videos into the Ranch forums.

Holy cow, CodeRanch forums got new face (title page), click here to see it. Holy cow again, JavaRanch got too, click here.

Please join us in welcoming our newest Bartenders.
