welcome to the issue

CSS: style and substance If you are reading this then there is a good chance you know what CSS is.

So what is on offer? We kick off with eight pages all about CSS animation. This takes you from storyboarding through to implementing a simple project, while passing transitions, keyframes, performance and SVG animation along the way. Want to know the ins and outs…

javascript: which are the popular choices?

Alongside HTML and CSS, JavaScript is the key technology that is driving forward web development. It is always moving forward, with new frameworks, tools and variations seemingly making an appearance almost weekly. While new additions add more power and panache to a designer’s or developer’s arsenal, the hard part is deciding which ones you need to be paying attention to. Who are the big players? Who are the newcomers to watch out for? Who’s going to be the one that pays the big bucks? Choosing the right path is not an easy task, so any help newcomers and established developers can get is always welcome.

keeping up with the web industry

Although there is definitely value in social media, there is an issue with the amount of noise it generates. On Twitter, the problem is exacerbated by the fact that the timeline is not in sync any longer. It’s just a random presentation of what might be interesting for you, which means you miss a lot. I’ve got 64,000 followers on Twitter, and yet I get all my resources via RSS feeds. I can’t find much on Twitter because it gets lost in the noise. The other problem that social media has caused is that instead of learning from each other, people try to create resources that get the most likes or retweets. We try to shortcut a lot. The priority is to make a cool headline that will get shared. I’ve…
