The goal of this site is to thank Dan and Cherrie for the incredible work and countless hours they poured into Front-End over the past number of years. Our hope is that many of you add to the thank you messages, photos, and pass the site around using #frontendthanks in your tweets, instagrams, etc.
The site has been built in Jekyll and hosted via GitHub Pages, this makes it easy for you to quickly add to the site. Note This will create a pull-request that will be sent to us for approval. If you really don’t want to use GitHub to make this happen, create an issue and I’ll add the message/photo for you. Message me on twitter if you have questions @michigangraham
Crazy thanks to Ben Callahan, Chris Coyier, Anthony Garand and all of you who submitted thanks for helping make this site happen!
