This week is another RAPIDFIRE!!!

We talked about (roughly in order):

Q & A:

  • 2:02 Should I use “.mainNav” or “nav.main”? Do you see any issues with using either?
  • 4:54 I’m looking to find a new job. How should I approach employers when I’m not proud of the sites I’ve been working on?
  • 7:18 I am developing locally and pushing out to a live site but is there an easy way to handle databases (WordPress mainly). Is there a more automated way to do this?
  • 12:00 How do you design for touch? Do you use something jQuery.finger?
  • 18:46 Google really likes blogs for SEO, are there any lightweight solutions to adding blog functionality to a pre-existing site?
  • 22:59 Do you think that in the future someone could create program like Photoshop with an export function that compiles everything into cutting-edge code that works on all browsers?
  • 27:20 What do you guys think of working with coffeescript, less, etc. along with task runners like grunt? Do you find these tedious or too confusing?
  • 38:00 How do you handle spam comments on a WordPress blog?
  • 44:28 I’m doing a web presentation at work in front of some non-technical people. I want to discuss 3 hot web design trends in 2013, what would you recommend?

  • A typo?: “Jeckyl”?

  • Another alternative to syncing local and live wordpress db would be to use sqlite3 database. http://wordpress.org/plugins/sqlite-integration/

    its more manual approach when you have no more than 5 authors making writes to sqlitedb. I believe it has concurrency issues with multiple write connections.

    Can’t believe you’ve never heard the word ‘faff” before!
