📢 I'm working on a prototyping tool. It's made from web components, CSS and a bit of Houdini. It's called Bruck. github.com/Heydon/bruck

🚨 A short-term project has been pushed into 2019, so that means I've got some availability for December.

It's the perfect amount of time for a small website project 🚀

This is a fabulous little web component powered library for putting low-fidelity prototypes together. I'll definitely be using it in the new year.

You just know it's going to be great because it's made by Heydon [heydonworks.com].

We had some pictures done of Cassie when she was first born and the photographer managed to picture of the four of us.

Priority one of my first day as an independent designer and developer is cracking out a fresh Field Notes, of course.

Something we need to get past is the concept that “developer experience” will cascade and result in better end-user experience.

It’s something I need to get better at and a trap I fallen into recently. It’s a tough habit to break.

I start most days like this. Of all the sleep deprived hours in the day, this is the best one.

I'm really feeling the burn at the moment, so I've got my AirPods in, my favourite hip-hop album on and I've been reading a really good article about how it came about.

Happy Friday, everyone.

I was thinking about getting some new blinds for my office, but I think Delilah has other ideas. I couldn't take this sunbathing opportunity away from her, surely?

Today marks 9 years since my partner Vicky and I got together. She’s definitely the best thing that’s happened to me.

In those 9 years, we’ve adopted two cats, moved house twice, got engaged and had two beautiful children together.

Roll on the next 9 years ❤️

I’ve been keeping a keen eye on this Gutenberg accessibility situation for a number of reasons and this post is calming to read.

There's still a lot to do to make Gutenberg compliant, but going in with a calm, pragmatic attitude, rather than a reactive, bitter one will surely be better for everyone.

This is smart as heck. What better way to teach folks about the <details> element than using the elements themselves to structure the post?

Hopefully, this neat angle will open up a really handy and more importantly, accessible, native HTML element to those (including me) who would previously use JavaScript.

I've been prattling on (and will continue to) about progressive enhancement of late, but let me share this by Ethan Marcotte [ethanmarcotte.com], who does a much better job of talking about it than I do.

It's a super inspiring talk and you should definitely give it some of your time.

Pro tip: don’t throw a party for a 2 year old when you have a 4 week old baby.

Second tip: Goof knife skills are handy when you’ve got a fuck-load if carrots, cucumber and melon to slice into batons, in a hurry.

I’m really looking forward to speaking at Inclusive design 24 [inclusivedesign24.org/2018/] this evening. It’s totally free, online and features some amazing speakers.

You can catch my talk at 21:00 UTC, where I’ll be talking about the power of progressive enhancement! You can follow along with the live stream, here [m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL].

I've given my office a little rework. I've made my MacBook the primary screen now and will use the larger screen for a couple of browsers. Mainly Firefox and iOS simulator.

Of course, there's a Field Notes on there, too, alongside my new ergo stuff.
