O'Reilly Network Announces Affiliates
Posted on December 8, 1999The O'Reilly Network, a network of websites covering open and emerging technologies, announced its first affiliate sites at the XML '99 conference. The sites offer resources on four influential technologies. The O'Reilly Network is scheduled for a January 2000 launch date.
XML.com, ApacheWeek, Servlets.com, and MySQL.com are the O'Reilly Network's first four affiliates, a number which is expected to grow throughout 2000. Each site has its own flavor and focus, while sharing a passion for the technologies it covers. Through affiliation with the O'Reilly Network, these sites will share content, and use O'Reilly's marketing and advertising services. The affiliates all feature regularly-updated news, collections of tools, reviews, previews of upcoming software, and links to numerous helpful resources.
"We are in the process of extending the O'Reilly brand online, and one of our first steps is to network together useful, independent sites that cover the technologies our developers care about," explained Dale Dougherty, publisher of the O'Reilly Network. "Each affiliate site will carry a logo featuring a distinctive O'Reilly animal, creating a visual connection to O'Reilly."
