This week we were joined by Jeffrey Zeldman, a man who scarcely needs an introduction around these parts. In the early days of the web Jeffery was influential in pushing web standards forward and getting us to the happy place we are in now. He’s also the man behind the web magazine A List Apart, the web conference An Event Apart, and the book label A Book Apart.
This first episode of the Besquare Podcast features Jeffrey Zeldman. This is part 1 of a 2 part interview.
Jeffrey talks to Craig about A List Apart, An Event Apart, Happy Cog and how he started out in the web industry back in the mid 1990′s. Jeffrey also discusses traditional education in the Web industry and the importance of web conferences as a learning tool.
Dubbed ‘King of Web Standards’ by Business Week, Jeffrey Zeldman publishes A List Apart “for people who make websites,” a leading journal of web design thought since 1998, and founded and is chairman of Happy Cog™, a design studio with offices in New York, Philadelphia, and Austin.
Jeffrey co-founded the multi-city web design conference An Event Apart with Eric Meyer, and co-founded and publishes A Book Apart, brief books for people who make websites with Mandy Brown and Jason Santa Maria. He hosts weekly design podcast The Big Web Show (.net Magazine Video Podcast of the Year 2010, and Podcast of the Year 2011), and is a faculty member on the MFA, Interaction Design program at School of Visual Arts. In 2012, Jeffrey Zeldman was the first designer inducted in the SXSW Interactive Hall of Fame.
One of the first web designers, and pioneer of web standard design structure and behavior.
The Big Web Show features special guests and topics like web publishing, art direction, content strategy, typography, web technology, and more. It’s everything web that matters.
Currently web standards lead at Mozilla, Tantek is one of the founders of both the microformats.org open standards community and the Global Multimedia Protocols Group, and an invited expert to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Cascading Style Sheets working group.
Tantek has played a key role in the development and popularization of practical social network portability technologies such as the hCard and XFN microformats. In 2003, Tantek collaborated with Eric Meyer and Matt Mullenweg in the invention of the XHTML Friends Network (XFN), which has since become the most popular decentralized social relationship format in the history of the Web. In 2004 Tantek proposed hCard for representing people and organizations, which has since similarly become the most popular user profile format on the web.
During his years as Technorati’s Chief Technologist, Tantek played an active role in refining and evangelizing hCard, bringing it from a wiki proposal to one that’s endorsed and supported by individuals, numerous small organizations, major companies ranging from AOL to Yahoo, and implemented for over a hundred million user identities and business listings on the web.
At Microsoft, Tantek led the development of Internet Explorer 5 for Macintosh and its Tasman rendering engine, which was the most standards-compliant layout engine of its time. He was also an early member of The Web Standards Project, and is the creator of the Box Model Hack, the first IE hack that let developers work around the incorrect box model in old versions of Internet Explorer.
Jeffrey Zeldman interviews front-end developer Jenn Lukas about how to tell if you’re a designer or coder; in-house versus product development versus consulting; Girl Develop It, a code teaching activity for budding women web developers; the designer/developer collaboration; tabs or spaces; jumping on the SASS bandwagon; staying sane during #siteweek; maintaining an active roster of side projects; the importance of writing; and more.
