Do You Make Games? Check Out Lifehacker IT Pro

Kotaku’s sister site, Lifehacker, has often described its unique mix of work, life and technology advice as “looking at the world from a programmer’s perspective”. Today it expands that focus on technology, while making it easier than ever to find the stories that interest you the most, from saving money on bills to finding the most rewarding career path. Lifehacker’s content now sits in three main channels: Work, Life and IT Pro (advice specifically tailored for the IT crowd). And don’t worry: when you come to the Lifehacker home page, you’ll still see every single story across all channels in reverse chronological order, just as you do now. Take a look.
