This content probably won’t be touched again, and I’m keeping it around for historical purposes. I might feel embarrassed about it or disagree with it now, but at the time it was published, I felt it important to share.
We moved to Atlanta! Also, updates on productivity systems, starting on research, Canada, and meditation.
Having fun with recursion, pattern matching, and logical equivalence.
I learned about the concept of desugaring from a lecture on programming languages, and I wonder how that would apply to design systems.
It’s a 1+ player game that can last from 1 hour to, um, much longer!
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.
I took a deep dive into this question, and the answer is: kinda, mostly, yeah! CSS + HTML + user input is Turing complete. Is it possible to remove the user input part? Then I can re-title this post to be more, ahem, declarative.
The methods for white-boarding algorithm questions serve us quite well when writing CSS algorithms. This post is a written portion of the second half of version 1 of the Algorithms of CSS.
Over the past year, I’ve been giving a talk called The Algorithms of CSS, originally created for CSSConf EU. This post covers the first part of my presentation, and breaks down how CSS fits into the categories of programming languages.
This is the first in a potentially long series about browser mechanics, in my own words. Read on to learn about one of the first steps a browser takes: decoding bytes to Unicode code points.
Is CSS a programming language? What is a “CSS algorithm”? Read on to answer these questions, and to learn how CSS fits into the world of programming and computer science.
