I’ve decided to finally get around to switching to a new host. It’s been nothing but pain so far. Read more if you care to bear witness to this painful and grumpy story.
Here’s #1. Help me improve and comment a bunch on all of these.
UPDATE Jan 3 2015: I created a CodePen collection.
My teacher, David Bieloh, asked me to put together some advice and it I ended up writing this behemoth. Below is a bit of useful information I’ve picked up along the way. You’ve probably heard some or much of it before.
But before you start reading through my rambling, stop reading this right now. Go purchase and read Design is a Job. Don’t come back until you finish.
I have my own SCSS file to handle vendor prefixes. It’s painful to keep updated and requires some serious hunting to get all the nitty-gritty details for each property. I have to dig through caniuse, css3please, MDN, webplatform.org, and a few others. Yes, I could use Autoprefixer, -prefix-free, Compass, or any number of other solutions. I would rather not because I like knowing all the nitty-gritty little things going on with my code and which browsers I’m supporting.
If you follow me on twitter, you’ve seen me post a myriad of links to various CodePen Pens. It might even paint the picture that I’m a bit obsessed with CodePen. To date I have created 35 public and 31 private pens and counting.
