Blog :: January Review and Competition Winner!

2012 is off to a cracking start, with a record number of cheat sheets and the first Cheatography competition!

2012 is off to a tremendous start, with a huge influx of new members and cheat sheets. The competition prompted the building of lots of great web dev cheat sheets, and I can't wait to start the next competition now!

What's New?

There was just one major change in January - the addition of Live Content (more info here). I'll give live content a proper introduction in a blog post shortly, but the brief explanation is that it is content you host on your own server, that Cheatography collects and adds to cheat sheets.

It's great for any information which changes often, and is quite easy to set up for even beginner coders. There is some sample code available for live content on GitHub.

New Cheat Sheets!

January was a productive month, with a brilliant, almost unbelievable, 23 new cheat sheets, and 12,986 PDF downloads! Well done to everyone who made a cheat sheet!
