First 2 Weeks as a Front End Web Developer

Just wanted to update everyone on my story since my post about leaving Mezzobit. I’ve got to say, after 2 weeks as, finally, a full time front end web developer, I am really enjoying it a heck of a lot!  I’m now a FE Dev for Worldnow and it’s a dynamic and exciting place with co workers that seem like really good natured, friendly people. I honestly like spending time with them and we all do the best we can to keep the stress down for each other while getting things done. At least that’s the way it feels so far.

I had gotten enticed by the world of […]

Object Oriented CSS

http://po.st/oocss – Original Article I read on Object Oriented CSS A colleague of mine told me about OOCSS a few days ago and I was intrigued and wanted to know more so I started reading about it around the web.   It’s funny, I didn’t have a “Eureka!” moment or didn’t say “Wow, this is cool!” I’ll tell you why! I actually felt like I was cheated a bit and lost some time developing my own CSS styling in this manner.  When I got back into coding around 2 years or so, I instinctively started styling with classes for the most part instead of ids because instinctively I thought, this […]
