- 3:00 Follow up: Is design a solved problem?
- 10:16 Why do sites that you have subscribed to the email list of not remember the link event when you open a link from their newsletter?
- 15:50 I'm finding it quite the task to remove hover states on a mobile device on certain links. Any ideas would be awesome.
- 20:15 When I'm building sites and I want a background image path to come from the database, what I end up doing is to use an inline
background-imageCSS rule. How do you handle this use case? Is there a nicer way?
- 22:40 What would you say are the most cutting edge softwares to be using when creating new web designs? Photoshop? Illustrator?
- 30:52 Are there any particular habits or attitudes you can think of that have stuck with you throughout your career and helped you become a better developer?
- 47:40 Can y'all give any insight on best practices that would help prevent shipping sluggy sites. What will push these ideas to the top? Google's algorithm? Web community education?
- 58:25 I recently learned about sass' placeholder classes, and felt like I discovered the holy grail. Then I learned about uncss - a grunt task by Addy Osmani that gets rid of all of your unused css. My question: is this the intended use of these tools? Are there any caveats here? Can they all work together in harmony?
