For over fifteen years, my blog’s been popular with website designers and developers.

Embracing the Exciting Future of Grid Layout on Boagworld

This week, I’m back on the Boagworld podcast to talk about the ‘Exciting Future of Grid Layout’ and the design possibilities supported by CSS Grid. I enjoyed recording it with Paul and Marcus enormously and I think that it’s one of the best shows I’ve recorded in a while.

My blogging heyday

One of the reasons for my redesigning this website was to make it more appropriate for the work I’ve been making most recently, but also as an opportunity for it to better reflect me as a person. A big part of that was the writing that I did in what I think of as my blogging ‘heyday.’

Boagworld gets me back to podcasting

Okay, okay. I know. No episodes of my Unfinished Business podcast for a few months. I’m really sorry about that.

Next week is Geek Mental Help Week 2015

Last year’s Geek Mental Help Week was, by all accounts, well received and a terrific success. Despite the fact that we pulled it together with sticky tape and string, people told their stories about how mental health issues had affected them and the people who care for them. Those stories were honest and humbling to everyone who read them. I hope that next week, Geek Mental Help Week 2015 can do something similar.

Hardboiled Web Design Fifth Anniversary Edition

I have some very special news to announce about my book. It’s a brand new Fifth Anniversary Edition of Hardboiled ’Web Design that’s published by Smashing Magazine.

Hardboiled Web Design Shots

Hot on the heels of announcing the new Hardboiled Web Design Fifth Anniversary Edition, I’m also incredibly excited and nervous to let you know about three new Hardboiled Web Design books that will be published throughout the course of next year. We’re calling them ‘Hardboiled Web Design Shots.’

It’s the taste. The all new Stuff & Nonsense

I can’t quite believe that it’s been almost two years since we launched the previous, Go, go, go, rillas! design of the Stuff & Nonsense website. Today, I’m very pleased to present our next design, ‘It’s the taste.’

Workshopping down under in March 2015

I have more than a soft spot for Australia. It’s where I’d live if that were possible and where I can see myself retiring to in, you know, twenty or so years. Luckily, I’m going back to Australia long before that, this March in fact, to speak at the fabulous Respond conference and to take my CSS For Responsive Web Design workshop on the road to Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, as well as Sydney itself.

CSS3 For Responsive Web Design workshops in 2015 (and a reminder about Oslo next week)

I’ve been very pleased with reactions to my latest ‘CSS3 For Responsive Web Design’ full-day workshop. Attendees at ‘The Web Is…’ in Cardiff and ‘Beyond Tellerrand’ in Berlin really seemed to like its mixture of design and technical content. I’ll be hosting this workshop again in several cities in various countries throughout 2015 and there’s still one more opportunity to join me in Oslo next week.

Ten years ago today, A List Apart published my Invasion of the Body Switchers

2014 has been a year of web design anniversaries. In May 2004 I wrote the first entry on this blog. This coming December my CSS Zen Garden submission was accepted and exactly ten years ago today my Invasion of the Body Switchers was published on A List Apart.

Ten years is a very long time in technology and so much has changed for me and for the web since then.
