24 Ways – an Advent calendar for web geeks

You don’t need to celebrate Christmas to enjoy 24 Ways – a ‘countdown’ calendar in which a new surprise is revealed each day from December 1st to the 24th – and this one being crafted especially for the inner web geek in all of us.

Make sure to check back each day between now and Christmas day (12/24) for a new tip to keep your holiday season a productive and educational one!
