It looks great and the focus on developers is very clear.
I especially like the "Developer Resources" and 
"Dev Community" blocks. Very informative and direct.

The language drop-down tab looks a bit odd, maybe.

We could also benefit from a focus on application development, which in 
my mind is very separate from the development of Haiku itself, even 
though the same/similar people are involved. Ideas may include app 
writing, or API-oriented, dev articles, disecting everyone's favourite 
applications. A series of smaller contests, or bounties, perhaps.

Speaking of apps, we should not take the services of BeBits for 
granted. I hope someone's talked to them in later years.
