I'm working on a project and I get the designs for this button style and I am really happy how it all came together. At first I thought that a CodePen I came across talking about double border buttons would help, but it didn't ultimately. Then I came across the excellent negative border radius example by Lea Verou and it really helped, but it didn't address the double borders.
Starting your own business can throw a wrench in your work/life balance. If you’re not careful, the relentless focus on work can deteriorate your home life and personal relationships. Scott Weiss, parter at VC firm Andreessen Horowitz, writes about how he was a jerk during his CEO years and what he learned. “While I was focused, motivating, articulate, and decisive at work, I was inconsiderate, preoccupied, self-centered, and lazy at home,” he says noting that when he got home he just wanted to veg out and watch TV. He then outlines a few adjustments that helped him restore the sanity.
One idea: treat personal engagements as more sacred than work ones and put them on the calendar as if they were any other meeting.
Ditch sidebar and browse your files in a normal tab with keyboard, like a pro!
This works really nice! It cracks open directories and files in a Sublime Text tab just like other text files, so you can use all of the navigation methods and tools you're used to, like multiple cursors and search & replace to rename files!
An essential and totally favorite iPhone app (though I wish they'd do an iPad version!) is on sale for $2 (normally $5). I love how they have Reminders support as well as I use it for the days tasks after pulling it from the master task list in OmniFocus. Anyway, check it out; it's a great one!
I recently found out that the Sutter Home Winery project I worked on with The New Group has won an award for Responsive Web Design! I handled the mobile, tablet, and desktop Drupal theming of the book section of that site while working along side other developers from The New Group. Congratulations to the team at The New Group!
The Award Description
Browser compatibility is for beginners. Elegance across 10 different laptops, 8 tablets, and 605 styles of smart phones takes next level developer mojo. Show me your mojo.
Summary: This will show you how you can simply "star" an article in your RSS feed-reader and then have it become automatically bookmarked on Pinboard, then turned into a searchable, link-clickable PDF on your Dropbox.
Front-end developers are often told to do certain things:
- Optimize your images to reduce their file size without affecting quality.
- Use Sass for CSS authoring because of all the useful abstraction it allows.
- That’s not a comprehensive list of course, but those are the kind of things we need to do. You might call them tasks.
I bet you’ve heard of Grunt. Well, Grunt is a task runner. Grunt can do all of those things for you. Once you’ve got it set up, which isn’t particularly difficult, those things can happen automatically without you having to think about them again.
But let’s face it: Grunt is one of those fancy newfangled things that all the cool kids seem to be using but at first glance feels strange and intimidating. I hear you. This article is for you.
Among the patents granted to Facebook this week by the USPTO is one for Inferring Household Income for Users of a Social Networking System. 'For example,' Facebook explains, 'an assumption might be made about a user that reads CNN.com and nytimes.com every day that the user is in a higher income bracket than another user that only reads TMZ.com and PerezHilton.com on the theory that a user who reads newspapers might be assumed to make more money than a user who only reads celebrity gossip blogs.' Advertisements such as those for travel packages, cars, and home mortgages, Facebook adds, 'are targeted to users based on income bracket,' which might also be inferred by 'gathering and analyzing different types of information about a user's geographic location.' Hey, what could go wrong?
I've been wanting something like this for a while! I love TextExpander, but the native integration of iOS Shortcuts is highly desirable.
Growing up in the United States, I was unfortunately never exposed to the metric system or Celsius. Since I've moved to Dublin, I'm find myself doing a lot of conversions from one unit to another.
My friend Ryan has a great, fast way to do easy conversions from feet to meters and Fairenheight to Celsius for us Americans traveling or living abroad. Check it out!
