This was a really great weekend! Between the 11th and 12th of June 2016, we had the pleasure to host aspiring front-end female participants for an event called Code Carrots #5 HTML & CSS. The plan was to learn how to make basic web stuff together and we did it!
As a web developer, there inevitably comes a time when we have to add responsiveness to an application. I've found some solutions that may help you. Some of them are pretty basic, but I hope you find them to be helpful.
PS. Every example below is written in CoffeeScript, SASS or SLIM.
When you're an experienced front-end developer, it takes just one look and few mouse clicks to judge whether or not the site in your browser is correctly implemented. By working on these problems day after day, you'll write dozens of lines of HTML/CSS, checking the outcome each time.
For the second year running, I had the opportunity to participate in Poland's biggest front-end developer event — the Front Trends conference held May 7-9 in Warsaw. This event, hosted at Fabryka Trzciny Art Center, was dedicated to all things HTML, JS, CSS and UX; it took me on a three day trip filled with joy, knowledge and novelty.
During my recreational reading of Angular.js documentation I made a handful of notes describing some little-known, yet useful directives. Bon appétit.
There’s a dashboard in one of our applications that shows data from various external services. The more data we were adding to this dashboard, the worse its performance and user experience was getting until the site eventually became unusable. It got to the point where its user had to wait 10 seconds or even more for the content to show up. Unfortunately, caching didn’t help much.
Here’s the story of what we did to reduce the load time.
2013 update: This post explains how to deal with the issue of groundlessly unathorized downloads in Xcode. It was written when iOS 6 had been released and iOS SDK versions 5 and 5.1 couldn’t be installed. You can apply the following technique if you experience a similar issue with newer versions of iOS SDK or any Xcode in-app downloads.
Currently at Monterail we're building a frontend-heavy app. With a lot of cool stuff. Like preloading data for daily views so that you won't have to wait for every surrounding day to load. Many, many interactive elements that should be really interactive - not in an oldschool, ajax
spinner way. And a lot of other stuff we shouldn't talk about yet.
