"Keep On Searching Best Practices instead of getting things done"

This is the worst thing I hate about myself I spend weeks and weeks to make it perfect with best practices and in the end of the day only few works like it's supposed to be but most of the time I am no satisfied with it. This article gave me a better perception about getting things done, If u guys have same problem then u guys should definitely read it. 
The more time you spend wondering how best to approach something, the less time you have to actually learn the best way for you. You have to learn through failure, so you might as well fail faster. Why It's Better to Fail as Quickly as Possible Why It's Better to Fail as Quickly as Possible Why It's Better to Fail as Quickly as Possible Most of us don't like to admit when we've failed and put it off as long as possible.… Read more Read more

So last week I showed off the new look for my website [https://plus.google.com/u/0/112099202311928709564/posts/JgBboXkxLsy]... Today, I am proud to show off the matching blog.

http://blog.sunfireweb.com

It was a fun learning process. I used underscores as the starter theme (so I'd have all the necessary files), and stuck in my CSS and Bootstrap-based HTML as needed.

As for the extras, I have Akismet and Wordfence up and running, I changed the login page URL, I've got Yoast free SEO installed, and I'm about to hook in Google Analytics.

Seeing as the Wordpress part of my site is only the blog, can you think of anything else I may need?

Now, I just have to figure out what to blog about.... LOL

Also I'm not a professional, I just have been browsing the web since 2006 immersively and that's my experience. And also I have been programming for the web since 2010. And I almost forgot, responsive is the other trend, but we have talked about that one already, things on mobile must look similar to things on desktop, and as I can see you're trying to do that, so good job.

Facebook's Internet.org project, which offers people from developing countries free mobile access to selected websites, has been pitched as a philanthropic initiative to connect two thirds of the world who don’t yet have Internet access. We completely agree that the global digital divide should be closed. However, we question whether this is the right way to do it. As we and others have noted, there's a real risk that the few websites that Facebook and its partners select for Internet.org (including, of course, Facebook itself) could end up becoming a ghetto for poor users instead of a stepping stone to the larger Internet.

We agree that some Internet access is better than none, and if that is what Internet.org actually provided—for example, through a uniformly rate-limited or data-capped free service—then it would have our full support. But it doesn't. Instead, it continues to impose conditions and restraints that not only make it something less than a true Internet service, but also endanger people's privacy and security.

H/T to - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9567976 .  Some good discussion on the subject there.

Hi fellow developers - i just want to warn you:
To all who are using Firefox Developer Edition and agreed to the "Multiprocess" testingphase - i had today a very aggrovating Browserbug i want to share.

If your Firefox confuses input text with input file (not rendering - only the focus event handling) - just close all browserwindows and dont wait until firefox hangs up on itself.

This costed me 1 Hour of Javascript Bubble debugging for nothing. Hope it helps anyone who is in the same Situation. Never had such a Browserbug before just today i accepted the new Multiprocess Feature.

(P.S.: This isnt Mozilla blaming - it was my own dumb failure, just want to inform others so they dont fall in this trap and YES i shared my crashlog with Mozilla :] )

You use the light or the dark theme? Do you know using theme conditionally based on what the theme of the product i.e website is you can have your eyes hurt less.

When I am working during the night, when the room around me is fairly dark, I like the dark editor theme. But I do understand the strain that can come from jumping between editor, browser [view source] and browser dev tools, which are both a light theme.

Spent the last few days working on a fresh look for my portfolio website. I even learned about open graph meta tags in the process... Would love your professional opinions on this version of my site.

New website uploaded. Tell what do you think.
The goal was a web presence kind of website. Just for presenting the services, and be reachable from the web. It's the 21st century and they didn't have a website.

Here is a post I did up on WebDesigner Depot where I asked best selling authors like +John Jantsch , +Ann Handley and +Neil Patel what we as web designers and web developers could do avoid pitfalls, add more value, and create more productive websites for our clients:
As web designers, we are always trying to create websites that leave a lasting impression. Yet in today’s world, websites have evolved from digital brochures

I still tend to disagree - it's a forum we're speaking about here. I mean I'm very much into security and everything, but sometimes you just want to take everything into perspective. Not really wanting to debate this - because your points are of course completely valid.

Hello all,

I am hosting a Code Pen meet up in Milton Keynes. If you live in or near Milton Keynes it would be great to see you there. It will be a general networking event to share work, names and drinks.

Please share this to any other front end developers you know that would be interested.

More detail about the event is on the link below.

Each one of us are trying to find if there are any errors when we open our website, so I wrote a small article of how to watch the log files output live. I hope it will #help everyone :)  http://fifo.cc/B7tiqfn

We log all errors (including in app) to to our own log file and have an app that displays it.
This is nothing short of a life saver. (well, job saver actually)
