One Man’s Developer Workflow

One Man’s HTML5 Developer Workflow | Emerging Tech Talk. We’re interested in the way other people work. I’m not sure how closely my inspirations align with everyone else’s but I do know that more often than not the average developer or designer is interested in how their colleagues work. Personally I’m interested in the tools, […]

Google: Page layout algorithm improvement

Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Page layout algorithm improvement. Google is improving their page layout algorithm to better handle the content-supersaturated pages we end up finding all too often. As stated in the writeup, the algorithm change affects less than 1% of searches globally, but that seems odd to me. I search quite a bit, […]

Posted: January 20, 2012 Getting a Makeover

PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. I long ago lost count of how many times I’ve visited It wasn’t the most beautiful thing in the world but you can teach yourself so much from that site alone. I feel like I’ve seen this design before, long ago, but perhaps not. Either way, I’m really glad that something […]

CSSDeck. One of the great things about front end development is the ease of access to the source code. If you’re curious about how something works, with enough ambition you’ll be able to figure it out exactly by viewing a few readily accessible source files. That’s very unlike the world of programming, so it’s something […]

The New Web Typography

The New Web Typography. Microsoft is really hitting things strong early in 2012, wow. The hot topic this week is OpenType support in IE10. While other browsers fit that bill as well, Microsoft made this (very non-Microsoft looking) website to tout what’s so cool about OpenType support in browsers. Of course a big pink ribbon […]

scrollorama. Yesterday seems to have been the day of project releases. scrollorama is a neat little piece of work that helps you better utilize “scrolly stuff”. The demo page outlines just a few things you can do when combined with other great things like lettering.js. Scroll-based behavior changes, when used properly (read: responsibly), can really […]

The future of CSS layouts

The future of CSS layouts | Feature | .net magazine. From time to time I’ll hear mumblings of CSS being ‘boring’ or ‘slow-moving’ or just an observation that everything CSS has ‘been done’. I beg to differ. Every time I think about how exciting JavaScript has become, I try to keep in mind that an […]

Bug 312156 – implement text-overflow: ellipsis from CSS3 text

Bug 312156 – implement text-overflow: ellipsis from CSS3 text. Straight from Bugzilla@Mozilla: Gecko now supports text-overflow:ellipsis! While not a major breakthrough, I really like that Mozilla has incorporated this change. Truncation and hiding overflow gets the job done, but it’s not nearly as graceful as the best use case for each scenario. If you’re not […]
