Git for Complete Beginners

Through Anselm Hannemann's newsletter 'Web Development Reading List' I found this very informative and easy to follow step-by-step guide to Git: The goal of this book is to get you started with version control and Git as quickly and easily as possible. Unlike other books about this topic, this one doesn't require a master's degree...

Don't Cross The Line

Here's a little sketch I made a while ago to help me decide what kind of projects I'm willing to engage in. Been near or even under the diagonal line far too often in the past, telling myself over and over again that things will change. No they don't. Change yourself.

(The Pains of) Displaying Random Content Records with Typoscript

Sometimes TYPO3, the mighty opensource Content Management System with a large community in Europe, drives me crazy. It really is a Love/Hate relationship we're having. I love the fact that you can get everything done with TYPO3 and I hate the fact that sometimes it's so damn complicated to get things done with TYPO3, not...

Pixel, Devicepixel, ppi, and your Mom

Assuming your mom is a designer, working with Photoshop on her fairly new Macbook 15", and putting out comps for "mobile"*. Somehow many of us assumed that an iPhone has a "screensize" of 320 x 480px, an iPad has 768 x 1024px and next up in line we have the laptop screens and desktop screens....

Smashing Conference, Freiburg, Germany, September 2012

The first Smashing Conference was the second »web« conference I attended. Having talked with Vitaly Friedman and Marc Thiele at last year's »Beyond Tellerrand«, it was a no-brainer to attend the debut of Smashing Magazine's conference. I was sure that this would be another great opportunity to refill my drained batteries, to catch up with...

The Findings of the Digital Marketing for Small Agencies Survey

Newfangled, a webdevelopment studio with offices in North Carolina and Rhode Island, interviewed about 300 small agencies about their digital marketing practises. Last month, we began a survey of the digital marketing practices of small agencies in the United States and elsewhere. The survey contained 132 questions, covering the operations, business practices, websites, content marketing,...

The Mobile Shift – the end of small studios?

[TL:DR] With the cultural change in processes (agile vs. waterfall), the need to educate clients and partners, and the imperative of working early in processes, small studios may lack the financial resources and manpower to fund this pioneering phase. Big agencies on the other hand have the resources, contacts, and the standing to establish new...

Client-Work, CMS and versioning…?

Hello fellow webworkers out there, this is a question I've had for a while now (and still have not found *the* answer). How do you establish a versioned workflow for a typical client-website-job, a website which is driven by a cms like TYPO3 or Drupal and is hosted on a server that's in the client's...

Make #grid.js play nicely with wraps

Fueled by Jon Tan's talk at the Beyond Tellerrand conference, I tested the hashgrid.js for my "About me" page. While trying to get the baselinegrid play along with relative values instead of the fixed pixel values, I noted a strange behaviour. I wanted the grid to work only on my wrapping element (in my case...
