Hey everyone, I’ve got a fun project to work through today. Implementing a slider is one of the projects I recommend to new programmers looking for a project. It’s simple to make a basic slider, but I wanted to make one that we can drop into any website and is easy to use for anyone […]
You know how much effort we put into arranging web pages right? I just finished making a Bootstrap 4 course, and the whole purpose of Bootstrap is to arrange web pages reliably. If they don’t want to use Bootstrap, web developers had to use a combination of CSS hacks to arrange a web page, including: […]
Here’s the thing: I really don’t think map, reduce and filter are for beginner programmers. Not because they’re “hard” or “too much” for beginners.

So, I’m going to pass straight over the debate over whether designers NEED to know how to code or not. I think the only expectation is that web designers understand the medium they design for. And that means HTML and CSS at least, which don’t count as coding, per se. The best part – once a […]
Ok, today’s post is all about having some fun with CSS.
We already know that we can use CSS to style document colors, change typefaces and lay out page elements.
That’s cool, but we can do so much more! How about transformations in three dimensions? Or re-creating the Star Wars introduction?
And the best thing is – these “advanced” techniques are actually super easy.
Sound fun? Let’s get started.
Hey everyone! Recently I asked everyone on the lukefabish.com newsletter if they’d like to see how I went from a basic React turorial: To this: They said YES 🙂 The writeup covers a lot of ground – from CSS to testing React with Enzyme – but it isn’t a technical tutorial. I describe some of […]
