I recently wrote a post over on Automattic’s design blog about how I believe the role of the themer will evolve, thanks to Gutenberg and more. Give it a read!
I confess, I switched editors again. 🙂 I first heard about Visual Studio Code on the Toolsday podcast, but didn’t give it much attention. I had recently started coding with PHPStorm, and was trying to embrace working with an IDE. Before giving it a go with PHPStorm, I enjoyed using both Atom and Sublime. But […]
I’ve often said to colleagues that at times I don’t feel like I’m a designer or developer. Most of the time, I feel like I’m right in the middle. I personally think that people who are skilled at frontend design are in a great position to help bridge the divide between the design and development […]
Chris Coyier posted a roundup of recent conference talks, and Steal This Talk by Wilson Miner turned out to be my favorite so far. He talks about how “stealing”, sharing and collaboration overlap and why we should all trust each other more and work together for far greater impact. It’s definitely worth a listen!

Brad Frost talks about dealing with the uncertainty of the future on the Web as a designer or developer in I Have No Idea What The Hell I’m Doing. If you need it, there’s a transcript on Brad’s site.
Smart words from Jeremy Keith on browser “support” and testing. He says: So to put it in glib terms, I support every browser …but I optimise for none.
Use progressive enhancement as a means to reward your users. Don’t expect them to do things for you just to use your product. If the tools you use means your users have to have a “modern” browser and load a lot of script you share your problems with them. Christian Heilmann in a post about […]
