Is Chrome the new IE?

This is something that I’ve been thinking about the past couple months. It is something I’ve seen discussed a few times in different places like this mention on CSS-Tricks or this article from the Verge. It is a worrying topic for more than one reason, but the developer community (and even…

New year, new theme, new gig

It has been awhile since the last post I made. I used to have the habit down a little better, but there is a good reason I have for breaking it temporarily. August was a crazy month for a few reasons. I got to go to my first WordCamp, which…

Customer Experience

Lately, both at work and in my personal life, the customer experience and how it is perceived has really been at the front of my thoughts. Just to clarify, this doesn’t specifically have to do with the web. It probably is more so with customer relations, brand image, and marketing.…

Learning Vue

Recently, I had to do some thinking to figure out some goals for the year and possibly beyond. As much as I feel like I have a pretty good knowledge set under my belt, companies are always looking for more. The reason why might have to do with a lot…

On Container Queries

So, lately I had read quite a bit about container queries (or sometimes I see them called “element queries”). Within the span of a couple weeks, there were posts on CSS-Tricks, on Ethan Marcotte‘s site (which I found by way of Brad Frost’s site), and a few Twitter posts (which I…

Meanwhile…

So, more and more I’m finally getting my itch back to start actually using this so called “blog” of mine and post something. Well, things will be coming in the future. However, there are some changes that have happened recently to the site that I think were worth talking about.…

Just an Update

It’s been awhile since I posted last, so I figured a quick catch up was in order of things I’m thinking about or interested in. I may write more about these topics in the future, but for now, I think a quick couple paragraphs for each will do. AngularJS So…

Review: Chromecast

I was lucky enough for my birthday this year to receive a brand new Chromecast from a friend. I had been wanting once since they were announced, and after seeing the price tag ($35) I wanted one even more. So what are my impressions from about 2 months worth of…

iObession

Just a friendly reminder in this post: when you’re doing responsive design, you need to think about all devices, not just the ones that you immediately use or the ones that you think are most popular (especially without actual data). In particular, this one goes out to all my design…

Re: In RWD We Trust – Is this trust misplaced?

I recently read this article on Web Design Ledger entitled, In RWD We Trust – Is this trust misplaced? and, like many of the other people who have read it, I was disappointed with some of the information the article offered up. RWD is really not the be all and end…

New Gig!

It’s been awhile since I posted my thoughts, but that’s because I’ve been in the midst of a job hunt. Thankfully, it has been successful and I’m going to be moving on soon! Reasons being outlined below: If you haven’t noticed from some of my blog postings, they can seem…

Design != Art

Recently, I was reading my Feedly when I came around to a story entitled “Dealing With Overly Opinionated Clients” published here on Speckyboy.com. While the article itself is quite good and worth the read, there was a particular bit that stuck out more in particular. Non-creative people tend to see…
