The last thing developers need today is another jQuery and/or CSS3 based content slider or carousel. I think the problems with these types of modules have been well documented.
About a year ago, however, I wrote a step-by-step tutorial for Issue #203 of Web Designer Mag that involved creating a “news content switcher”. I’ve been meaning to revisit, tweak, and release the code for that here and so I finally got around to it.
Due to the prevalence of ad-blockers, ads as a means to support online content is becoming a less effective method with each passing month.
Selling ads on a blog like this one is not easy, and resorting to backfilling missing ad-spots for ugly Google Ads is less than satisfying. I hope I can one day remove all ads from this website and still continue to produce content regularly.
To begin the process of reaching that goal, I’ve put together 3 CSS E-Books in PDF format containing a collection of CSS-based articles that I’ve published here on this website. Below are links to view a description and table of contents for each e-book:
Off and on over the past few months, I’ve been planning and working on a new project that is now ready to launch: Web Tools Weekly, a (you guessed it) weekly email newsletter targeted at front-end developers, with a special focus on tools.
This is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a unique idea. As many of us know, there are lots of options in the recent web dev newsletter boom.
On March 2nd and 3rd, I attended and had the privilege of speaking at jQueryTO, Canada’s first ever jQuery conference. It was a really cool experience, and was especially cool because I finally got to meet in person certain developers that I’ve respected from afar for some time, including Darcy Clarke (who organized it), Paul Irish, Addy Osmani, Alex Sexton, and Adam J. Sontag.
