    The new logo moves away from the language centric "S" approach to a more language agnostic idea. Consider the possibilities of using regional languages where users won't feel alienated by an "S".

    This may be a step in the right direction I think.

    Motion sickness. I did not understand which direction to scroll. Please don't customize my natural scroll behavior.

  • Posted to ASK DN: How many of you work as designers yet can do serious front-end development?, Sep 11, 2015

    I design using Sketch and am able to code in HTML, CSS. I have had good experience designing and coding for mobile web apps so I am familiar with RWD patterns and anti-patterns.

    I find my hold in JS a little sketchy and can do a better job if I can convince myself to learn more JS.

    I am Indian and I am not offended.

    There is soil which does look similar to the color and perhaps they thought it was convenient to name it that way.

    I am really not sure why you'd ask this question.

    Yes. I agree it has become unnecessary complex. I hope Apple looks into these issues.

    Yes. I checked in regular mode and it looks fine again. Surely, it is a bug in fullscreen mode.

    Yes, I built Grunt based Starter kit for myself to allow building in Sass with Live-Reload for multiple devices.

    • Uses Swig for templates and Sass for Styling.
    • References can be passed using JSON available to all templates.
    • Live reload works for all devices.

    This has helped me move away from Codekit and share this with people and team mates without worrying about the platform.

    I like how easy it was to get the form working by just adding the required form elements in my markup. No server side work required. Works really well.

    Can I also get an email notification saying I received a form submission? That would be wonderful.

    I'd recommend increasing the contrast of the foreground text with the background. Additionally, bump the font size a bit. +2 for the body copy while +4 for the headings.
