Nice clean new redesign of http://t.co/LM2saEjfHU. Very nice to see the sites that we use all the time get a refresh for the better.
Agree: I hate forgetting colors and their nonspecific variable names… Just use good-ol Find & Replace! http://t.co/pcyhDaHRRf #DRY #SASS
Part of the challenge when crafting new markup is coming up with semantic class names that are descriptive but not restrictive. This article can’t help you come up with a base name, but it can help make applying those names to your markup and SASS quicker, easier to understand and modular.
There have been quite a few nice posts in the blogosphere about SASS and BEM and how to make them work together nicely. I have seen different ways that people prefer hyphens before elements or underscores, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you have a system and you stick to it. Here is a real-world example that I have from a recent project.
What is the future of the home screen? Joe Alicata says make it about the content: http://t.co/if1yWkCj44
I like to compare web design to architecture. I think it is an apt metaphor and will expand upon that idea later in a full article. For now, though, I'd like to share a quote from Mark Simon about the architect and teacher Charles Moore (my replacements in brackets):
@brad_frost does it again with "The Principles of Adaptive Design" http://t.co/lsFGE8O6e4 Great ills, too: RWD is the tip of the iceberg
Amazing bit of logic and math for an all CSS carousel animation. http://t.co/IEdL7dL5pu #SassFTW
We’ve been quiet for a time, I know. Heads down, working hard… not making time for ourselves and for self-promotion. Sometimes, when the projects are large and the problems are difficult to solve, it’s unavoidable.
It’s been a bit bumpy, I can tell you that. We treat everyday as a learning opportunity, so that keeps us ready for change, however tumultuous it may have been. As I look back at the past six months, though, I can’t help but think we’ve accomplished quite a bit. While the road has been long and bumpy, we have survived and gotten stronger and hopefully smarter. If we don’t learn a little bit everyday, we must be doing something wrong.
Hey @newrelic how can we get our nerdy little fingers on some of those #nerdlife stickers? We want to do some sticker bombing!

Most of the new python site wasn't me, but @fcurella @webology @jacobian and @pe1999. I just helped finish up a few things FYI!
It's the little things: Bookmarklets to take you to same URL path on Django runserver’s localhost:8000 http://t.co/3Eo5BvXP0P via @revsys
Some of the best designers I know call themselves developers
I think it's safe to say that @DjangoSuit has some new groupies at PE. First time working with it, but so far so good. Well played!
Have users abandoned their larger screen tablets for the 5" screen in their pocket? Perhaps tablet fandom is over: http://t.co/wyFZKrt469
Made the office less "office like", post holiday festivities @pe1999 http://t.co/v5YsHNq7l0
We determined that it would cost us more to support IE7 than it would to buy new computers for clients stuck with it. htt…
Welcome to the office @benspaulding! We are getting ready for a great week with our remote peeps in the PVD office for a nice change.
Instead of "Which CMS are you using?", ask "What needs do our users have?" We're designing & delivering services, not buy…
I appreciate the sentiments here: Don't overly favor data or intuition. Use both. http://t.co/deF39u7WL2 via @boagworld
Quick CSS tip that answers that eternal question: how to center things vertically http://t.co/I4jIDzFNGo
@happycog @girlie_mac Design for every possible user scenario, or let the user control the experience? http://t.co/NwMSXrtR4F
Designers — myself included — tend to love, love, love controlling the user experience. We call it “design”, but it is really a form of control. We anticipate how a user will interact with a website or application, and design/control the way they go from one task to another, find the useful buttons, read the content, etc… Its not so easy to control that experience anymore — or even predict it.
CSS blend modes for colors and images beyond just opacity? Yes, please. http://t.co/yzFk1RpOWK
@revsys That's a swell Christmas gift, and a sharp looking one at that! Let us know if there are any tweaks needed in the new year.
Look at that, our very own @benspaulding contributing in the spirit of the holidays! That's just how we do. https://t.co/Kw3qv4gjTU
Design and Front-end dev peeps! What do y'all recommend for font management on Mac OS? @happycog @BeardedStudio @muledesign @hearsparkbox
Web design workflow changes as often as there are new tools and methods, which is to say, practically every day. It's tough to keep up. I have been helped out a great deal by other teams that share their knowledge and their own internal best practices, so, through a local MeetUp group, I was inspired to do the same.
We are thankful for everything that we have – our families, our friends, our clients – and we are thankful for... http://t.co/5xQi19fClv
Thanks to everyone last night for attending the @pvdUX meet up to talk SASS and why we are drinking our beer wrong. Now enjoy the holiday.
The @pvdUX at PE is on and the presentation by @artinruins is starting now! http://t.co/o5QUiO6ayM
First day at PE for @josiemorway! Welcome, good to have more creative energy onboard.
