1. It’s a Celebration: We're very excited to share that Donald Knuth, a living legend in the field of computer science and celebrated author of The Art of Computer Programming, has been named recipient of the Dr. Peter Karow Award for Font Technology & Digital Typography. Adobe, in partnership with the Dutch Type Library, established this prestigious award in 2003 as a means to celebrate visionaries who have made exceptional innovations in the development of digital type and typography-related technology.

2. Hot off the Press: SharePoint 2013 Unleashed is the most complete, practical resource for all administrators, managers, architects, users, and developers to make the most of Microsoft’s powerful new SharePoint 2013 platform. Authors Michael Noel and Colin Spence focus on what administrators and knowledge workers really need to know to effectively design, implement, configure, and use SharePoint 2013.

4. Women in Tech: Nancy Mead of the Software Engineering Institute answers some questions about the evolution of software security, advice for people considering a career in software engineering, and the challenges of being a software development manager at a time when there were few women in the field.
