I stumbled across 12412.org when looking at Paul Davis’s work. Consisting of three developers including Paul, Anthony Killeen, and Stephen Fulljames, 12412 aims to log their activities throughout 2012 as they choose a new technology or technique every month to learn and play with. I thought this was a fantastic idea. I’ve had an insanely busy 2011 and haven’t spent...

We Are The Developers

We are the developers. We work behind the curtains. We rid the world of bugs. We stay up late and wake up early. We’re always innovating. We’re on the bleeding edge. We’re closer to each other than any other industry. We’re not required to have credentials; yet we’re the most educated. We know more languages than anyone else. We’re not...

How To Not Be An Annoying Designer

I also come from a college background of design, which is a benefit when working in front-end development, as I still have an eye to make sure every pixel is in its place. This also gives me the opportunity to see behind...

An Optimized Development Workflow

I’ve been working on the Macbook Air for about a week now and I must say, besides a few speed issues (which I’m pretty sure is due to a faulty Time Capsule), I’m really loving the swap. I’ve got an external monitor set up as the main monitor and I use the 13″ Air monitor as my secondary. I’m constantly...
