The Code Side of Color
The trouble with a color's name is that it never really is perceived as the exact same color to two different individuals -- especially if they have a stake in a website's emotional impact. Name a color, and you're most likely to give a misleading impression. Even something like "blue" is uncertain. to be more precise, it could be "sky blue", "ocean blue", "jeans blue" or even "arc welder blue".

Tips and Tricks for Print Style Sheets
Print continues to be treated somewhat cursorily by most Web designers, who tend to be obsessed with pixels rather than printers. In the real world, a significant portion of people rely on pages printed from websites for reference: there's still something about having a physical sheet of paper in one's hands, even in this age of digital saturation.

Using Slack to Monitor your App
For the past few months, I've been building a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, and throughout the development process I've realized what a powerful tool Slack (or team chat in general) can be to monitor user and application behavior. After a bit of integration, it's provided a real-time view into our application that previously didn't exist, and it's been so invaluable that I couldn't help but write up this show-and-tell.

Using Templates to Transform Web Service Results into Markup
Web services are a means of implementing application logic that can be accessed remotely via HTTP. they allow distributed, often heterogenous, clients to interact with server-side functionality, and are commonly used to provide a back-end API for mobile applications. However, they are often implemented using a separate software stack from an application's web front end, resulting in additional development and maintenance effort.

Examples of Facebook or Amazon advertising (both claim to use machine learning) that don't match our interests at all are quite common today.

Web Development Reading List #172: on Reporting Bugs, DNS Subdomain Takeovers, and Sustainable UX
As web developers, we all approach our work very differently. and even when you take a look at yourself, you'll notice that the way you do your work does vary all the time. I, for example, have not reported a single bug to a browser vendor in the past year, despite having stumbled over a couple.
