Chris Coyier: Thinking like a Front-End Developer

Very entertaining talk from Mr Coyier of CSS Tricks about the sometimes contradictory requirements facing front-end developers today. In this video, he explores his notion of The Great Divide in front-end dev. As he puts it: The divide is between… Continue Reading →

Marcus, the big feller…

Banksy made a Simpsons intro? Yup.
