    Yes, thank you, agree about HR.
    Today i was thinking about your words. It's strange, but sites for job has only positions with strong js skills (all need Angular, ajax for load things in e-shop, login form, connection with google adwords etc, json and D3.js). Nobody want svg or smth)) And there is many openings for site administrator. I was invited for interview on FED, passed first interview on English, but refused to pass another step - test on js. I need to know what test will be about. When you invited FED, did they passed test and is this test was looks like on css-tricks?

    Keep away from the job sites then. Like I say many list requirements like buzzwords they know nothing about. The agency I work for I just applied direct, they didnt even have a job opening. Yes strong JS skills are a must. If you can demonstrate that lack of knowledge in a particular framework shouldn't really stop you getting a job - it can be quickly learnt if you were to get the said job.

    Scary stuff! I must admit I haven't seen it mentioned on many Git tuts.

    I see a lot of git repos that have DB and site credentials left in too.

    How does that stuff even end up in git? I'd assume most devs using git will be well aware of the .gitignore file..

    It's more like illustrator because it's designed for vector graphics and UI. Photoshop was never intended for UI work, but it was adopted by designers anyway. If you want to edit photos though, Sketch isn't really suitable, but if you do UI, wireframes or illustration work then it is.

    Sounds good to me, Pixel perfect designs aren't needed in modern sites so vector is no problem. Problem is people get acoustomed to tools and it's hard to move them onto something better..

Ever wondered why we think like we do when designing. Read my article about how we are influenced by isms and artistic movements: http://nielsharbo.dk/?pageId=blog&blogPostId=25&lang=en

    I think that article is stereotyping quite a lot, I'm sure we all know successful people who are nothing like the article describes.

    I concur Jack. The IE team actually seem to care now, the same cannot be said for Apple.

    I've never seen an article on the web from the team behind Safari. MS, Google and Mozilla are the opposite. The Safari team don't seem to care at all.

    They are falling behind quite rapidly now. Does Safari even have any ES6 features?
    Jul 21 2015 04:17 PM

    Yes, but it's way behind the others. Inronically the new IE is leading thre pack when it comes to ES6 implimentations. Safari is really failing when it comes to implementing new HTML5 APIs. I get the feeling they see the web platform as a competitor to their precious App store.

I was offered a good job in front-end, but i refused. To long trip. 4 hours. Half a working day. Now i am a little sad. I And i have a few the similar proposals on the other side in Moscow. Is that normal to have so long trip to work, maybe i should take it?ip

    MAybe you can ask the employer if it is possible to work on some of the tasks from home.

    Yes, i will have to stump up. It's better to have a long trip rather than high rent. But 6AM, oooooh:)))) Work from home is my sweet dreams. All of us want this. But owners want someone to sit at office. They thinking it provides easy and fast communication. Now i am sending resume directly to companies, located close to my area and to HR on job sites at the same time. It's interesting what will work better.

I think we should be able to css lower case numbers, make the web a prettier place.

    Lower case numbers? Numbers only have one case, or have I been missing out on capitalised digits all my life?

    Lol it's more that some times numbers look out of place ... to be able to get a number to the same weight and size of a lower-case letter would be sweet :D

    Interesting discussion on Google+. Douglas Crockford said:

    "I gave desperate warnings against the obscurity, the complexity, and overambition of the new design, but my warnings went unheeded. I conclude that there are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."

    You o know the article is very much tongue in cheek - a joke! And Yes Crockford said Class was a bad idea and I agree it is.

    I'm no designer either. it's a lot of fun when you pair with a good designer :) I'm more FE too, but if we keep progressing with JS and Node then we can build isormophic stuff (Same code on FE as BE)

    By the way - you know Codepen has autoprefixer option - it will save you from worrying about vendor prefixes. Nice use of clip-path btw!
