Formatting PHP in VS Code

I recently had one of those brick wall moments over a workflow issue all developers have, especially those who try to stick to open source solutions for everything: Code formatting! It is one of those things, just like keeping the bathroom clean and tidy, allowing us to know where everything is without having to fish […]

Don’t be an anti-semantic

I often get the feeling that there are many people who hear the word ‘Semantics’ mentioned by Front End Designers in passing but don’t really know what it means. Rather than go straight into Web Semantics & how this relates to the Web and building semantics into HTML, I think it is important not to […]

Clients, Users, Browsers

I spend an enourmous amount of time with browsers and knit picking the designs I build to fit them all. During the build process and my fleeting (and sometimes more than fleeting) visits to outdated browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 and 7, I sometimes wonder what it must be like for those poor souls […]

Front End Design, where’s the line?

Most Web sites can actually be built and […]

Blue Beanie […]

If you’re anything like me, you like reading blogs and other online content to learn things, be inspired and have a nice experience while you’re doing it. I was recently made aware an article over at Usability post called ‘a motive for bad design’. Being someone who strives for the highest quality possible, it took […]

Web Standards – So What?

The Web has been around for a good few years now. Most people are aware of it, if not using it in their every day lives. It has come a long way since the early nineties when Web pages consisted of a bunch of simple tags that linked to other pages with basic information in […]

Progressive Enhancement is a good thing

The Web of today is changing. Whether we, as Web professionals, like it or not. There are currently about 10 browsers (taking into account versions, which often differ from each other) on the market within which Web sites need to function. As a front end designer who is conscious of the way businesses have to […]

Hi, I'm Webegg

Having been doing this for years and years, I've built up an enourmous amount of knowledge about HTML, CSS, jQuery/Javascript and the ever popular CMS of choice for most people, Wordpress.
