I was discussing with colleagues the other day that there's an entire generation of peers who have never made a website any other way than a single-page application with React.
👋 Hello I'm @nickdunn.
I'm a Technical Director at PA Consulting where I pretend to know about content management, design systems and fullstack engineering for the web and mobile.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 22 years you’ll have watched way too much Location Location Location. In each episode of its 36-series-and-counting, Kirsty Allsopp and Phil Spencer guide two sets of house hunters through the buying process. It's addictive viewing, tapping into our British obsession with property ownership, snooping inside other people’s homes and wanting to know exactly how much they paid for it.
The Technical Director role within an agency or consultancy is often difficult to define. We wear many different hats that are otherwise worn by a Staff Engineer, Director of Engineering or CTO.
Photoshop isn’t up to laying out text for the web, so we made our own tool.
A quick list of things I learned while building things in 2015.
UPDATE 2010 EDITION: Just use Netlify.
Working on a project with many designers and engineers can make it difficult to manage type styles. I find that we often end up with different sizes or weight definitions littered throughout the project with a lot of repetition as styles are redefined within media queries.
