Workflow, Responsible Responsive Design, And More Friday Links

I have already come across a few things this morning that I’ve wanted to share out, so it seems a short blog post is in order!

  • Profession Workflows & Best Practices | WPSessionsBrian over at WPSessions is hosting a free seminar on best practices for development and you shouldn’t miss it! It’s going to be a great learning opportunity for anyone, whether you’re new, a freelancer, or work with these tools every day. I can’t wait for this one!
  • Pixact.ly: This is a fun little game that shows you how well you can eyeball pixel values. I’m just OK. How do you measure up?
  • Sleeping Position by Profession: Funny and pretty accurate from my experience.
  • Story.AM: This service that’s launching soon. From the site: “Create and sell interactive longform stories on a collaborative platform built for storytelling.”
  • Responsible Responsive Design: The latest book by A Book Apart, penned by Scott Jehl. This is bound to be a good one. I can’t wait to read it.
  • Silicon Valley Job Title Generator: What are you? This morning I got “KICKSTARTER EVANGELIST.” Funny because yesterday, I blogged all about Why Kickstarter is bad for Christmas Gift (what I don’t mention in the title is what I think it’s great for).

Sass, Sublime Text, Github, and Changing my Development Workflow

When I left the full time freelancing world 2.5ish years ago, I had a very specific way I did things and I enjoyed it; however, admittedly, it wasn’t the best. I was using Coda, not making local copies, not using any form of version control, and my frameworks were becoming stale. I’ve been going to lots of WordCamps lately, talking to a lot of coders, listening to a lot of podcasts, and I came to the conclusion that the way I did things when I left the freelance world, the things I still do today, are not only outdated, they are slowing me down, and are dangerous (in the case of data loss). I decided to change  that.
