This is the very first post of the new Tuts+ staff blog. Welcome to the maiden voyage! We’re glad you’re here.
Tuts+ has been around for more than six years now, growing in that time from one little blog teaching Photoshop skills to a giant network teaching all kinds of things. I’m not going to attempt to summarise six years of changes, more than 15,000 posts and 600 hours of video course learning, the hard work of thousands of talented instructors and contributors, and everything that Tuts+ means to us in one post. Nowadays, the picture is too big to describe all at once.
This blog is our place to start talking about that big picture in small chunks. We’re coming full circle—from one little blog, to a huge educational network, to another little blog—so that we have a place to connect the dots, and talk about our interests and the things that make us tick. But most of all, to take a step back and look at the whole of Tuts+ and what it means to teach and learn.
We’re all excited to be here, and I’m thrilled to be the one smashing the proverbial bottle of champagne over the bow of this little ship. It’s going to be an adventure!
