Something that I hadn’t thought about in a while was image preloading in css.
When we started our redesign of the Cheezburger network we had the daunting task of building a front end framework that met the needs of not only our developers but our vast network of sites. After many meetings, grueling discussions and attempts at DIY we finally choose [twitter] Bootstrap. It was the ‘it’ framework and had just reached its 2.0 milestone, so why not?
I have worked closely with two women developers in my career, and I must say they taught me so much I couldn’t even begin to explain.
I have recently re-discovered todo.txt the handy plain text todo list, along with its CLI.
As I review resumes for developers there is one thing that always becomes an issue, code examples. I have found that many developers don’t have good code examples and sometimes don’t have them at all. Why is that? do they not see the value in proving they can in fact code? do they just forget to include those in their portfolio/resume? are schools (assuming they have attended school) not emphasizing the importance of code as a media? who knows all I know is that more developers need to have examples of code to give future employers a good sense of their abilities, this is just as important as a designer having examples in a portfolio or a business graduate having relevant experience on a resume.
As we enter a day and age where everything needs to be “responsive” we need to have a better way of identifying and supporting devices.
So this is my new site, it was created with Jekyll and Sekeleton. I have decided not to stray too far from the base Skeleton styles because they are nice and simple. I want this site to be about me sharing information and not about how flashy it looks. I am planning to add some addtional sections to this site once I have them ready for prime time but for now its just the basics.
