Markup / HTMLThe hamburger menu isn’t going away anytime soon — neither on mobile nor desktop web designs and development.

My boss shared this in a meeting earlier this week, and I’m loving the links and collections the page has curated.

It’s a bunch of modern web element demnos, tagged into categories including buttons, menus, images, icons, text, input fields, and trending.

I’m looking forward to diving into the demos/examples and bookmarking in the browser (and mentally) for future web projects and implementation.

Common WordPress Security Issues

WordPress, WordPress | Posted by Keefr January 19th, 2017

In 2016, we added another plugin that’s part of our base install with any WordPress site we’re developing – iThemes Security / Security Pro for helping to harden WordPress installs. The article linked below outlines some of the common things WordPress, its plugins, and its themes are susceptible to in terms of security holes.

Obviously, as the maker of the theme, their piece is partially about selling the need for their plugin, but 1) that’s ok — both the free and paid versions are great and 2) the information is accurate, valid and something you should be considering with every WordPress install you put out into the public.

Web Development, WordPress | Posted by Keefr December 19th, 2016

Saw this article this morning, and while the meat of the article is specifically referring to WordPress, the first couple of paragraphs are good words to live by whatever the project — even outside of development.

Documentation, failure and research, while all great things needed within development, also span good work ethics and problem solving in general.

markup-htmlNice article on the role of the front end developer — and how aware and how many hats they truly have to wear.

I need really thought about it, but a lot of what the article highlights in terms of awareness are a lot of the reasons I love my job as a senior front end developer and the variety it offers.
