Chris Lema on the art of giving estimates

June 24, 2014

Chris Lema with some practical tips and his personal way of giving project estimates. Best article i read on the subject in a long time.

First of all, the service was thought as a mod_rewrite to nginx converter. However, it allows you to convert some other instructions that have reason to be ported from Apache to nginx.

A Dao of Web Design – A list apart

November 30, 2013

It’s hard to believe this article is 13 years old!

The web’s greatest strength, I believe, is often seen as a limitation, as a defect. It is the nature of the web to be flexible, and it should be our role as designers and developers to embrace this flexibility, and produce pages which, by being flexible, are accessible to all.
