Getting AMP’d with AMP. We’re going to talk about the #hotdrama about AMP with a couple of AMP experts.
Before listening to this episode, I was completely uninterested in AMP. After listening, I’m still uninterested. The proponents did nothing to sell it to me.
That said, I can imagine how AMP could be good for end users. For example, last night I was listening to a podcast and browsing the web on my iPhone, I had just started reading an article on Boing Boing when a video advert started playing, which in-turn muted the podcast that I was listening to. Grrr. I’m thinking that AMP could have prevented this annoyance, but then again, I’m also thinking the owners of Boing Boing could also have prevented it by not deploying obnoxious ads.
Ambient coffee shop sounds to give you an easy creative boost. Combine the sounds into your own unique sound environment.
Interestingly, or not, I was listening to Nirvana when I came across this site. Good rock music helps me to zone out, but ambient cafe sounds could possibly work too.
Let the robot choose what semantic tag is right for your HTML5 element.
I love robots.
WebGradients is a free collection of 180 linear gradients that you can use as content backdrops in any part of your website. Easy copy CSS3 crossbrowser code and use it in a moment! We’ve also prepared a .PNG version of each gradient. As a bonus, there are packs for Sketch & Photoshop.
A simple and fast API to monitor elements as you scroll […] The scroll monitor was designed to be very fast. On each scroll event the DOM is only touched twice, once to find the document height and again to find the viewport top. No variables are declared, nor are any objects, arrays, or strings created. Watchers are very cheap. Create them liberally.
Another scroll monitor, this one looks quite efficient. The stress test demos are a nice touch.
Learning HTML and CSS is hard, but it doesn’t have to be. This 14-chapter tutorial is one of the friendliest HTML and CSS guides on the Internet. We’ll walk you through everything from selecting a good text editor (which is surprisingly important) to building full-fledged, professional-quality web pages from scratch.
This is possibly the most comprehensive guide to web development ever. OK, possibly not, but it is really rather good. The next time somebody asks me where to start, I’ll know where to point them.
Over the weekend the attacks increased and WordPress security firms have seen more attempts blocked by their firewalls. Sucuri, the website security firm that reported the vulnerability to WordPress, was tracking the “Hacked by w4l3XzY3” campaign last week and estimated 66,000 defacements. That particular campaign has now passed 260,000 pages indexed by Google. It is one of nearly two dozen defacement campaigns targeting the vulnerability.
Ouch! The WordPress REST API has certainly gotten off to a rocky start. Personally, I love the REST API, but I’m thinking this hasn’t helped convince its detractors that it should remain as part the WordPress core.
We’re also introducing the Linode 1GB, our lowest priced instance ever at only $5 per month. We believe this will add a great deal of utility to our service.
This is good news, although I’m surprised Linode didn’t do this long ago — DigitalOcean have been offering a $5 droplet for some time. I wonder how long it will be before DigitalOcean up their $5 droplet from 512MB to 1GB?
Anyhow, I’m thinking a $5 Linode will be ideal for lots of applications, including cheap development servers and possibly even a small/personal ownCloud instance.
