In Critical Defense of Frontend Development - Jens Oliver Meiert

Hear hear! This great article about the craft of Frontend Development by Jens starts with a bang: Frontend development is a field that’s not unfamiliar with being misunderstood, and its value being underestimated or missed Oh yes. At first, FE was seen as some variation of Desktop Publishing. "Real" designers would ponder about the (visual)…


From Gatsby to Eleventy - Amber Wilson

Amber writes about her switching the "motor" of her blog/website. What I really like is the in-depth comparison and reasoning which kind of shows that the "rule of least power" should also be more often applied not only to the technology in general, but for our choice of tools as well. And I admire her…

CSS Naked Day 2020

Simplicity (II) - Bastian Allgeier

Bastian reflects on a topic that's very close to (my) home -- the supposedly unavoidable Tooliganismn that is involved with working on the "modern" web.


Hystery Repeating…

Here's a string of tweets I wrote this morning, a topic that's dear to me, but I never found the time to make a concise blog post out of it. So for now, the raw bites. (Not to diss Flash or the Flash-developers or the creative work that got acomplished back then and helped to…


CSS Grid Support - Edge now has it, too

Yes! I cannot think of another new spec that has landed in all major browsers in under one year. Over at A List Apart is a very interesting article on the history of the CSS Grid and by whom and how it was made possible. On October 17th, Microsoft’s Edge browser shipped its implementation of…


CSS Grid Support - Hello Opera

Well, to be honest, I hadn't Opera on my watch list, so it slipped my attention for a while. But, Opera, too, already has CSS-grid support. :-)


CSS Grid Support - Safari now haz it, as well

Ja tschakka! Anfang des Monats Firefox, sehr kurz darauf Chrome, dann Opera, jetzt Safari -- es tut sich mächtig was in Sachen CSS-Grid. Nachtrag: Das Update auf iOS 10.3 hat dem dem dortigen Safari ebenfalls CSS-Grid beigebracht:


CSS Grid Support - Chrome now haz it, too

Uh baby. Nur einen Tag nachdem Firefox einen in Sachen CSS-Grid Support vorlegte: Chrome konnte das natürlich nicht auf sich sitzen lassen, und so ist heute der CSS-Grid-Support im neuen Chrome 57 gelandet. Grid it while it's hot. :-) Yescss!
