I’m going to be working on more meaningful blog posts – but I did want to share some good stuff that I’ve found lately:
The Web Ahead Podcast – seriously, one of the most informative podcasts out there in our industry. Stop what you’re doing right now and go listen.
The CSS3 Generator – I’m using this just about every day right now.
Codekit – I’m still only experimenting with LESS and using this App, but it could totally change the way you develop websites.
CSS Lint Documentation – Rules – If you’ve ever used CSSLint, this is the set of rules that it checks against, and why. I don’t agree with every rule (like to not use IDs as part of CSS selectors), but a lot of good insight on current best practices.
Pattern Primer – by Jeremey Keith. This is a great way to start going about building styles. Do yourself a favor, and check out the demo, and look at the stylesheet. I am now writing my CSS differently because I did.
24 ways: Your jQuery: Now With 67% Less Suck.
