The Birth of Cheatography

In 2005, Dave Child posted a PHP Cheat Sheet on his website. Lots of people seemed to find it useful, so he made another one, this time for CSS. Before long, he had made a bucketload.

Fast forward a few years, and Dave was getting lots of email from people asking how he made his cheat sheets. He decided to make a site to enable people to quickly and easily assemble their own cheat sheets - a cheat sheet generator. And so, Cheatography was born.

It then took him several years to actually make the site, because he kept changing his mind about things.
