Adactio: Journal—Getting started
Notes from Jeremy Keith on starting out in front-end circa 2019. Really useful for [Longridge], because I never have a good answer to where to start any more, and lots of these resources look great.

The Subtle Magic Behind Why the Bootstrap 3 Grid Works | Experience Design at Hello Erik
Very clear explanation of precisely what's going on inside the Bootstrap grid - with diagrams, and also clear explanations of the roles of each styling class. The clarification of push/pull is particularly useful.

Twitter Bootstrap
"Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites. It includes base CSS and HTML for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, and more." Really nice - straightforward, elegant, and a good starting point for the scratchy websites I tend to end up making.

Scroll Clock
It's a digital clock made out of scrollbars; divs being resized to force overflow and generate a scrollbar make up the seven-segment display. Bonkers.

Unit Interactive :: Blog :: Better CSS Font Stacks
"...using these guidelines, and building on the experience of much more knowledgeable type gurus, I have compiled a list of font stacks that will both open up more font possibilities for web designers, and hopefully offer more appropriate substitutes:" That's interesting; not sure how appropriate it is, but they're good uses of the cascade, by and large.

Recreating the button | stopdesign
"The buttons are designed to look very similar to basic HTML input buttons. But they can handle multiple interactions with one basic design. The buttons we’re using are imageless, and they’re created entirely using HTML and CSS, plus some JavaScript to manage the behavior." Dark, dark voodoo, but very impressive - and excellently explained by Doug Bowman. It's nice to see Doug blogging again.

Code: Flickr Developer Blog » Lessons Learned while Building an iPhone Site
"Developing this site was very different from any other project I’ve worked on; there seems to be a new set of frontend rules for developing high-end mobile sites. A lot of the current best practices get thrown out the window in the quest for minimum page weight and fastest load times over slow celluar connections. Here are a few of the lessons we learned (sometimes painfully) while developing this site." Really excellent article from on building their new mobile/iPhone site.
