  • Posted to What conferences are you going to this year?, Mar 17, 2015

    I go to a lot, so I'm leaving out ones that are a bit more design inspiration or tech-oriented.




    CSS Dev

    I'm not 100% yet, but probably Blend Conf. I share it because it's a perfect mix of all dev and design.

    I've been beta testing this for a few months and it is so good. The details put into improving workflow available are awesome. I have a very specific offline workflow that I use, but I've still considered switching. It's that good.

  • Posted to Responsive sucks and doesn't work, Jun 24, 2014

    I'm guessing that you just needed to vent, but your title says that an entire technique is bad and doesn't work. Your reasoning for that is then one poor implementation of one specific need.

    Images are very hard to implement across multiple resolutions, whether you're using an adaptive or responsive approach. There was an entire day of a conference dedicated to them recently. It's a big problem that lots of people are working hard to solve.

    If you want to add value to the community, go with a title like "Cropped images in full fluid divs leads to bad UX". Create a CodePen with an example and show it off. If you're really zealous, come up with a solution that improves the UX and share that. There are already some selective cropping options and ways of maintaining hierarchy.

    We're not going to get less devices or less screens. Be a part of the solution.

    I work with Nick and Drew, who maintain this. It's awesome to use and v4 is on the way and even better.

  • Posted to Why Geisha is now Panda, Mar 04, 2014

    I wasn't sure what could be offensive about the word geisha, since they are a real and regular part of Japanese culture. However, the definition according to Merriam-Webster is: "a Japanese girl who is trained to entertain men with singing, conversation, etc.".

    The use of the word "men" significantly alters the meaning and was something that I didn't know. So at first, I was disappointed in what appeared to me to be an overreaction. However, I can certainly understand switching away from something with that dictionary definition.

    I think it's just an online version of "dressing for the job that you want." For the people that do it, their faith is a top priority in their life and they want to work with people who either feel the same way or respect that.

  • Posted to What do you think of using animated GIFs in email?, Oct 15, 2013

    We've tested a few of them in emails sent from Code School and they are very well received. Of course, you have to go down the checklist: Is it something that is more easily consumed visually and animated? Will it be annoying or distracting while other parts of the email are being read? Is it worth the kbs?

  • Posted to What do you listen to while you work?, Jul 11, 2013

    Each Tuesday I start at the top of the new releases on Rdio and make my through the albums. I listen as long as I can stand for each one.

    I do it because I love finding new artists or songs that I dig and because it often just ends up as background noise.
