I had the pleasure of attending the second day of jQueryTO this past weekend and had a great time.
It was pretty awesome to see the presentations given by people like Paul Irish, Tim Branyen and Derick Bailey. I've read a lot about the things they've done to try and advance the web and educate people, so it was pretty cool to see and hear them live. I saw Addy Osmani in the crowd, although I missed his keynote on the first day.
One presentation that got me itching to get back to my terminal window was Dan Heberden's presentation on Grunt.
The other day I was dealing with an issue where a php script was outputting a white page.
Browsing error logs proved useless and there was nothing indicating why this was happening.
I remembered the environment had the excellent Xdebug module installed.
I've been looking for a quick way to put together a web stack for some time now.
There are a lot of common tools (backbone, requirejs, bootstrap to name a few) that I use in every project and sometimes it gets quite tedious to setup.
Inspired by Twitter's Bootstrap, I bring to you the new version of Pyjama Coder!
In addition to the CSS revamp, you will notice a few other things have changed.
- the homepage now lists excerpts from up to 5 posts and is paginated
- there is a sticky navigation bar at the top of the page
- the old post listing has been moved to a blog page
- the site is responsive for widths of: 480, 768, 980, 1200, and 1200+
There are also a few fun css additions.
Recently, I've been playing around with Twitter Bootstrap and it's pretty amazing.
It is pretty full featured and contains a lot of useful components in addition to the basic grid and styling. It even comes with a spiffy icon set.
The Need for Right to Left
A site I've been working on requires the display to be right-to-left instead of left-to-right. Who knew there were people who read things backwards?
