This is possibly the cutest thing I have ever created! The middle illustration peels off into its own sticker.
A quick share of what I consider a significant win for Larva, the design system I started at PMC that is now a very official thing at the company.
A quick post about realizing an intersection between my existing knowledge and something new I am learning. Well, maybe they are both new things.
If you're ever frustrated, feeling like, "No one is listening to me!!" just look at this sweet monster.
A lesson learned during research and development for a new project at work.
What happened in 2019? Lots of good things and some not as good things. This post is mostly about the good things in my life!
I have at long last revived my email list! Sign up to receive a monthly monster + feed of recent blog posts in your inbox. What a sweet deal!
An idea for a word / concept that might make tweeting a more pleasant experience for me. Written in haste.
I honestly feel refreshed as a human being after listening to this podcast about Fred Rogers, and how the values from the Mr. Rogers show apply to our world today. 10/10 recommend.
This shape embodies the illusion that everyone else knows exactly where to go, and fits perfectly into what they do.
I started writing a year in review post, but ended up watching a talk about impostor syndrome...
This conference talk is a great introduction to the S.O.L.I.D. software design principles. How do these principles manifest when it comes to UI programming with HTML/CSS?
I had a lot of impassioned thoughts while on a run today and decided to bang out this Twitter-thread-blog-post instead of letting them die a slow, silent death, alone in my brain, as they often do.
Hastily written post with the results of some free-form Saturday language research.
A bit of documentation I wrote for a Sass mixin that outputs utility classes based on a map of values.
These monsters are enjoying the weekend so far! Looks like they won’t be going anywhere.
A friendly monster to welcome in the weekend! This has happened before.
There is a borderline overwhelming amount of documentation to be written, but gotta start somewhere! Here's a kinda random first addition to Larva's Naming Guidelines wiki page.
But first, this thread can exist in a safe space, on my blog, where I can edit and tweak and even decide not to tweet at all...
Here's a quick write up about a CSS algorithm we just created at PMC! It seems like it will be useful in future projects, and we now have a programmatic term to use to refer to this kind of UI design pattern.
A very cool, test-oriented workflow has emerged with the introduction of Backstop JS into our design system tooling. I recorded some sloppy screencasts to show it off! Watch me struggle and make mistakes and also accomplish things.
I spent a while debugging a font-face issue. Can you spot the problem?
For example, a `color` property should not be in an algorithm that is intended for CSS grid properties. This is a potential Stylelint rule that would report that!
I think I figured out a really cool, fun, exciting, and not complicated way to write tests for CSS algorithms! This post introduces the concept of writing unit tests and test driven development.
I thought I encountered a browser bug, but I didn't. I learned some things, and now you can read this and learn them, too!
