  2. 020: With Mat Marquis - ShopTalk

    This week we were joined by Mat “Wilto” Marquis. He’s now a full timer at Filament group in Boston who, while doing client work (like The Boston Globe, have you heard of it?), have done some amazing open source work for the modern web (e.g. major contributions to jQuery UI and Mobile). Mat chair’s the Responsive Images Community Group and has been front in center in the work (or shall we say, #hotdrama) toward dealing with responsive images in web design. We talk about (roughly in order):


    • Kicktastic
    • Mike Evans: 23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?
    • RWD Calc
    • Coda 2
    • Axis
    • Q & A

    • What up with Filament’s Enhance.js (new beterness coming!) Can we as authors just choose not to use features we don’t like? I* s the RICG (the so-called “picture pushing club”) lazy? (Hint: no. Here’s a link to a recent compromise).

    • Should designers now be making all sites responsive? And thus prices going up?
    • How does a business like Wade’s Tree Service get decent SEO and avoid shady over-promising services?
    • Can we improve the aesthetics of websites during the loading process? What up with Opera Mini?
    • What is / should we always be using Progressive JPGs?
    • Resources for staying on top of responsive web design: @RWD, @brad_frost

  3. 021: With Nicole Sullivan - ShopTalk

    This week we were joined by Nicole Sullivan, a long time web veteran, originator of OOCSS, CSS lint, and tons more. Nicole is definitely a thought leader in the modern web development world who is often ahead of us all. We’ve watched OOCSS start out as this abstract and highly criticized concept turn into a pretty commonplace practice on large sites. We talk about (roughly in order):


    • Matt Wilcox on The Responsive Images Problem
    • IE 7 Tax – Company literally charging 6.8% more for products they sell online if browser is IE 7.

    Q & A

    • Isn’t OOCSS just moving CSS bloat into HTML bloat?
    • Is there going to be a book on OOCSS?
    • Recognizing when many elements have the same classes, and making a new class that @extends the old ones.
    • Can you use the body element like you would a page-wrapping div?
    • What tools to we suggest for validation in the modern world, especially as part of a workflow?
    • How does SMACSS compare/contrast to OOCSS?
    • When do you call yourself a professional designer or developer?
    • How about universally setting elements to position: relative;

  4. Aaron Gustafson – Adapting Your Designs with Progressive Enhancement » UIE Brain Sparks

    It’s difficult to predict how users will access your designs and your content. More and more, people are connecting to the internet through some sort of mobile device. Using the latest advances in HTML and CSS can leave aspects of your site incompatible with some browsers. How do you ensure that you’re providing a good experience to your users over a broad spectrum of scenarios?

    Aaron Gustafson, author of Adaptive Web Design, believes that progressive enhancement can help. He says that progressive enhancement is a great way to get designers to think about the user first. As he states in the podcast, “the best browser is the one you have with you… so why are you making it impossible for me to do something super simple?”

    Approaching your designs in this way, you avoid putting technical restrictions on your users. You end up delivering a rich experience appropriate to them in their context. You can employ CSS3 and JavaScript to create a robust experience for those who have capable browsers. But you can also remain accessible and able to perform on older browsers or less capable devices.

    In this podcast, Aaron and Jared Spool discuss adaptive web design in more depth. It’s a small taste of the daylong workshop Aaron will be presenting at the User Interface 17 conference in Boston, November 5-7, 2012. Learn more about UI17 at
