Responsive Design: WordPress NYC Meetup Recap

Wordpress Responsive Web DesignTo say “responsive design” is a hot topic right now is an understatement. As proof, just google it, and you’ll find great resources and articles about it online. In addition, as it relates to this specific meetup (agenda listed on that page) – I was one of 60+ people that were on a waiting list for this CBS Local venue that holds 120 and I was lucky to get in. The WPNYC community definitely wanted to hear what the speakers had to say. Sonja Liex (link to slides provided), and Jack Reichert (link to slides provided) were game and I thought they gave a great overview of the issues developers face with the explosive growth of web-enabled devices…

Embracing HTML5, CSS3 is a power play worth billions

html5 and css3 are a plot by dr. evil, well not quite but they are shaking up what's possible in Web and rich application developmentEach day HTML5 and CSS3 show up on my radar more and more, like some kind of incessant reality show that dominates the topic of conversation at the office water cooler. But in this case, HTML5 and CSS3 dominate Internet chatter and the trends I follow on Twitter, where HTML5/CSS3-related issues have really been picking up steam. As I alluded to here in my previous post about HTML5, and as evidenced by this article on the coming build of Internet Explorer 9, HTML5 and CSS3, compliance is likely to shift the balance of power in Web development software.

It’s something more real and tangible, thanks to Matthew David. He does a brilliant job breaking it down in his post “Inside HTML5: The Browser becomes a first class RIA citizen” over at InsideRIA.com.

I have only dug into HTML5 as a curiosity about the font embedding that’s coming in the future, (and I was intrigued by the native support for audio and video) but I have not really thought of the more comprehensive development implications of the coming HTML5 standards until now. This article is really worth a read, especially the information about the proposed new foundational elements, and the CSS3 special effects…

Exploring Web fonts, moving beyond Arial and Verdana

Arial and Verdana composite collage exploring cross-platform font options for digital design I’ve primarily used “Arial” and “Verdana” as my html text fonts. Recently, I’ve been re-visiting that as a rule. There’s been a number of Windows and Mac OS updates in the “wild” for a while now, so perhaps my options have expanded and I thought it’s a good a time as any to freshen up my work…

I take a look at some cross-platform options, font replacement techniques, font embedding and what future standards might offer an intrepid developer down the road…
