A Front End Developer is Aware - Chris Coyier

In a general sense, the front end developer is positioned in the middle of lots of other jobs. Everybody involved in a web team ends up talking with the front end developers. That makes sense.

Surveying the Landscape - Peter Gasston

Ch-ch-ch-changes

For a long time it has bugged me that the css for the recent version of my site was desktop-down. I made some adjustments for adaptive/responsive behaviour three or four years ago, but since the code base of my site is organically growing since I started it on WordPress in 2005… uhm, I think you…

That means they’re assuming that modern JavaScript is available everywhere. adactio.com…

Add class attribute to WordPress "the_tags" markup

I'm in the process of gradually enhancing my site's markup with microformats, in order to "indiewebify" my site further. On thing I noticed while working on this at the Düsseldorf Indiewebcamp, is that WordPress (or the way my theme handles) tags on posts has no way to get an additional class inside the link markup.…
