Today is our 3rd birthday! Yay! Three years ago the first article was released on Codrops (let’s not mention what that was, alright?) and we have been enjoying releasing articles and tutorials ever since. Right now, we have 431 posts and 16,812 comments! We have more than 20,000 awesome followers on Twitter, over 9000 super-cool fans on Facebook and more than 4000 plusses on Google+!
We’ve made a little compilation in the form of a circular slider with some highlights of the past years (tutorials and development posts with demo). Check it out here:
