- Going From Dumb Little Idea to Real Website in Like 10 MinutesI live in Bend, Oregon. I woke up with the dumbest idea ever that there should be a little food truck map website and it should be called Vend, Oregon. It’s not my finest idea, but hey, I’m full of those. Fortunately, we don’t have to spend all day on this.1) Figure out what’s going to go on this dumb little website
Fortunately, all the hard work was already done. One of our local rags already created a …

- Copyright Law Basics For UK Software DevelopersSoftware developers all over the world can benefit from an increased understanding of intellectual property (IP) laws and how those laws may affect their work. Software programs are often complex works that include both functional and artistic elements and may be covered by a variety of different types of IP laws. This can be very confusing for those who haven’t been taught about IP and can cause them to miss out on opportunities to protect their own work or to accidentally infringe on the work of another.

- The Vue CookbookI’m extremely excited to announce that the Vue Cookbook is officially in beta! For the past few months, the Vue team has been writing, and editing and accepting PRs from the community to build a new section of our docs called the Cookbook. Each recipe stands on its own, meaning that recipes can focus on one specific aspect of Vue or something that integrates with Vue, and do a small deep dive into that subject. We can then include more …

- React State From the Ground UpAs you begin to learn React, you will be faced with understanding what state is. State is hugely important in React, and perhaps a big reason you’ve looked into using React in the first place. Let’s take a stab at understanding what state is and how it works.What is State?

- Getting Started With The Web MIDI APIAs the web continues to evolve and new browser technologies continue to emerge, the line between native and web development becomes more and more blurred. New APIs are unlocking the ability to code entirely new categories of software in the browser.
Until recently, the ability to interact with digital musical instruments has been limited to native, desktop applications. The Web MIDI API is here to change that.

- Microsoft Edge Variable Fonts DemoThe Edge team put together a thorough demo of variable fonts, showcasing them in all of their shape-shifting and adaptive glory. Equally interesting as the demo itself is a history of web typography and where variable fonts fit in the grand scheme of things.
This demo pairs well with v-fonts.com, which is an interactive collection of variable fonts that allows you to play around with the variable features each font provides.

- A simple resource for finding and trying variable fontsThis is a website designed to showcase fonts that support OpenType Variations and let you drag a whole bunch of sliders around to manipulate a typeface’s width, height, and any other settings that the type designer might’ve added to the design.
I think the striking thing about this project is that I had no idea just how many variable fonts were out there in the wild until now.

- Theming With Variables: Globals and LocalsSetting CSS variables to theme a design system can be tricky: if they are too scoped, the system will lose consistency. If they are too global, you lose granularity.
Maybe we can fix both issues. I’d like to try to boil design system variables down to two types: Global and Component variables. Global variables will give us consistency across components. Component variables will give us granularity and isolation. Let me show you how to do it by taking a fairly simple component as an example.

- Monthly Web Development Update 3/2018: Service Workers, Building A CDN, And Cheating At DesignService Worker is probably one of the most misrepresented technologies we currently have. When I hear people talking about it, the topic almost always revolves around serving an app when a user is offline. However, Service Worker can do so much more than that, and every week I come across new articles that show how powerful the technology really is.
This month, for example, we can learn how to use Service Worker for cross-tab messaging and to load off requests into the background with the Background Sync API.
- Ethical Design: The Practical Getting-Started GuideBy now, most people working in tech know and feel the deep concerns related to surveillance capitalism fostered and upheld by the tech giants. We understand that the root of the problem lies within the business model of capitalising and monetising user data. Stories of how people are being exploited surface on a daily basis, like the recent story about how Instagram withholds like notifications to certain users, with the purpose of increasing the rate of which they open the app.

- Animate a Container on Mouse Over Using Perspective and TransformI’ve been working on a website in which large pictures are displayed to the user. Instead of creating a typical lightbox effect (a zoom-in animation with a black overlay) for these large pictures, I decided to try and make something more interactive and fun. I ended up coding an image container that tilts as the user moves the mouse cursor above it.Here’s the final version:
See the Pen MrLopq by Mihai (@MihaiIonescu) on CodePen.

We know that no API can write your code for you (unfortunately), but ours comes close. With in-depth documentation, customizable features, amazing support, and a dashboard that makes your code easy to debug, you won’t find an eSignature product with an easier path to implementation. Or that’s more liked by your team.

- How BBC Interactive Content Works Across AMP, Apps, And The WebIn the Visual Journalism team at the BBC, we produce exciting visual, engaging and interactive content, ranging from calculators to visualizations new storytelling formats.
Each application is a unique challenge to produce in its own right, but even more so when you consider that we have to deploy most projects in many different languages. Our content has to work not only on the BBC News and Sports websites but on their equivalent apps on iOS and Android, as well as on third-party sites which consume BBC content.
- Short note on what CSS display properties do to table semanticsWe’ve blogged about responsive tables a number of times over the years. There’s a variety of techniques, and which you choose should be based on the data in the table and the UX you’re going for. But many of them rely upon resetting a table element’s natural display value to something else, for example display: block. Steve Faulkner warns us:
When CSS display: block or display: grid or display: flex is set on the table element, bad things happen. …

- How To Make A WordPress Plugin ExtensibleHave you ever used a plugin and wished it did something a bit differently? Perhaps you needed something unique that was beyond the scope of the settings page of the plugin.
I have personally encountered this, and I’m betting you have, too. If you’re a WordPress plugin developer, most likely some of your users have also encountered this while using your plugin.
Here’s a typical scenario: You’ve finally found that plugin that does everything you need — except for one tiny important thing.

- Building A Static Site With Components Using NunjucksIt’s quite popular these days, and dare I say a damn fine idea, to build sites with components. Rather than building out entire pages one by one, we build a system of components (think: a search form, an article card, a menu, a footer) and then piece together the site with those components.

The lessons learned are divided into general that can apply to all types of disabilities; and lessons learned for three specific disability categories: visual, motor, and cognitive.
