Another RAPIDFIRE episode of ShopTalk! No guests, no #hotdrama, no news, just all steaming hot question on answer action. We talk about (roughly in order):
- Golden rules for freelancers or sub contractors for protecting themselves.
- What to do when your working environment is getting too complicated for you to feel effective.
- What happens with ems on retina displays? Do they change? What about rems?
- How do you load mobile specific stylesheets in WordPress with wp_enqueue_style()?
- Should you use fake data for development in the early days of a web app?
- Can you size icon fonts like you might size an image in a flexible design, taking up 100% of the width of a container like an image might?
- Is it OK to use Dreamweaver for a code editor?
- I’m 16 – what should my hourly rate be?
- Can you convert CSS into SCSS?
- Mijingo – Screencast for serious developers. One recent release of theirs is about Jekyll, a static site generator on Ruby.
- Environments for Humans – Conferences for web people. Upcoming conferences include InControl Conf and CSS Dev Conf, back to back in Honolulu Hawaii this early December.
