Screencasting a Complete Redesign

Chris Coyier:

Hey folks! Here’s the plan in a nutshell:

I’m going to redesign

I’m going to turn it into an educational experience for everybody by screencasting the entire process.

By helping me out on Kickstarter, you get access to that library of screencasts, and more!

I just backed the Kickstarter project by Chris Coyier, who will screencast the whole redesign of his site CSS-Tricks. With your pledge you get access to all the screencasts in a private area on CSS-Tricks.
I’m really looking forward to see how he works and I’m sure I can learn a lot along the way.
So it’s not only a great way to support Chris going full time with CSS-Tricks but also a fun way to learn some new things.

Just Build Websites

Just take an idea that you have and learn what you need to build it as you go. When it comes to building websites, there is no one-true-way. Enjoy the journey.

Nice little one-pager contributed to Chris Coyier. And the message couldn’t be more true.


Chris Coyier:

„Which CSS preprocessor language should I choose?“ is a hot topic lately. I’ve been asked in person several times and an online debate has been popping up every few days it seems. It’s nice that the conversation has largely turned from whether or not preprocessing is a good idea to which one language is best. Let’s do this thing.

Great piece by Chris Coyier. I started out and am currently using LESS, but in the last few weeks I suspected that SASS might be better in some ways. Chris confirms my hunch. So while I’m currently happy with LESS I think I’ll try switching to SASS. Although it’ll be some work to convert my LESS files, it seems to be the better alternative in the long run. I’ll keep you informed how it goes.
