Paul Bakaus (@pbakaus) is the “Voice of Chrome DevTools, AMP and Open Web Games at Google”, was previously the Studio CTO at Zynga and is the creator of jQuery UI. HE blogs at his “sea of ideas” at paulbakaus.com.
In this edition of Decoded Chats, Chris Heilmann took a whole 50 minutes to take Paul on a deep-dive of Accelerated Mobile Pages, or AMP – a new and rather creative way to deliver content on mobile devices in a very secure and fast manner. As with every format competing with HTML, this brings a lot of worries and confusion, many of which we discussed here.
Aaron Gustafson inspires us to build a web where content is accessible to all people. He encourages us to keep an open mind about perspectives that are different than our own. He motivates us to keep focused on context when it comes to the users we’re designing for. He also challenges us to plant seeds of growth in others by making ourselves available and open to new opportunities.
Aaron Gustafson is passionate about web standards and accessibility as would be expected from a former manager of the Web Standards Project. In his two decades working on the Web, he’s worked with companies such as Happy Cog, Major League Baseball, McAfee and The New York Times. He joined Microsoft as a web standards advocate to work closely with their browser team. He loves sharing his knowledge through writing. His three-part series on progressive enhancement for A List Apart is a perennial favorite and his seminal book on the subject, Adaptive Web Design, has earned him numerous accolades and honors. When he’s not writing, he’s probably on the road presenting at conferences and running workshops across the globe. He is a longtime member of Rosenfeld Media’s “experts” group and former technical editor for A List Apart. He and his wife also brokered and produced the DVD release of Drawing Flies which was also produced by Kevin Smith (of Clerks fame who also happens to be a fellow comic book nerd).
Ada-Rose Edwards @LadyAdaKing is a Web Developer, Developer Advocate for Samsung Internet and self-proclaimed “Web Fangirl”. She’s been instrumental in the development of the Financial Times App, one of the first applications to use HTML5 to deliver a great cross-platform experience that rivaled the quality of native apps. She is based in London, England and you can find her on the web at ada.is.
We invited her to chat with Chris Heilmann about the concept of Progressive Web Apps, what new technologies like Service Worker mean for the web and a few more of the technologies she explained in her article “The Building Blocks of Progressive Web Apps“. She had a lot of great insights into application development for the web and tips and tricks how to make them work for everybody.
Host Jeffrey Zeldman chats with front-end developer extraordinaire Brad Frost, author of the new book Atomic Design. In a freewheeling romp through a wonderland of design and technology references, the two web pros discuss Pattern Lab and style guides, being there for the iPad launch, working with big brands, how to say no and make the client happy you said it, avoiding antipatterns, mobile versus “the real web” in 2009, dressing for success, contributing to open source projects, building a community, the early days of Brad’s career, and that new book of his.
“I’m not rich, but I have a rich life.” – Chris Coyier
What we talked about:
The story of CSS-Tricks
Blogging as a business (advertising)
Building an audience with a blog
Staying up to date on tech
Having a clear value proposition
A day in the life of Chris…
Chris Coyier teaches us that if we care about succeeding in something, we need to be willing to persist for a long time. He inspires us to grab hold of the joy that comes from building for ourselves, too. He encourages us to not just use a framework because we’re “supposed to”, but to use whatever tool is right for the job. He also enlightens us to the superpower of using SVG in practical ways.
Chris Coyier is the founder of everybody’s favorite CSS resource CSS-Tricks, and the author of newly released A Book Apart published “Practical SVG”. He’s a fellow podcaster co-hosting the Shop Talk Show. He co-founded the incredibly innovative web coding playground, CodePen. He loves to share his knowledge as an international speaker and avid blogger. His life goal is to be a banjo player in an old time string band.
Host @zeldman checks in with frequent guest @sazzy to discuss blogging, design, social media consulting, Britain, America, speaking, travel, and, oh, yes, that election.
Thoughts about front-end development and design. And probably other ramblings by Una Kravets.
The next step for Jeffrey Zeldman: this week Paul and Rich talk to the web design pioneer who, in Paul’s words, “designed the aesthetic of the web for a while.” They discuss his history as founder of the design studio Happy Cog and A List Apart Magazine, co-founder of A Book Apart and An Event Apart, and author of, amongst other titles, Taking Your Talent to the Web. They then discuss his newest venture, Studio.Zeldman, dig deep into the difference between an agency and a studio, and touch, controversially, on the pronunciation of “GIF.”
