Considering heading out to the Develop Conference in Brighton this July? Well if you are you can get 10% off registration using the code DEV14AF2. Additionally, if anyone agrees to write about it in their journal or as an article, we do have some passes we can get you.

So then, here are your Journal Land entries from the period of 5/9 - 5/17

Say hello to new journal author ShawnGreer!
