I stumbled across Brad Birdsall today, via a tweet by Chris Coyier:
Anyhow, Brad is front-end dev and is one of the folks that make the web design and dev community great. He learns stuff and he shares it with the rest of us. I dig that solution referenced above for button treatment and I really dig this lightweight mobile slider he released Swipe JS.
Check out his site, bradbirdsall.com, his company Prime and follow him on Twitter.
The awesome folks behind ConvergeSE have released their 2012 dates, April 27th and 28th. This year looks to be coordinated along with the Indie Grits Festival. I have attended the last 2 ConvergeSE events and will definitely be attending this year’s as well. I’ve been lucky to become pretty friendly with the crew and my family turns this into a chance to enjoy a relaxed week on the lake in South Carolina.
They put on a fantastic show and the previous years have been the best value that you can get for an event ticket. The crew is made up of highly passionate and totally down-to-earth web folks. I highly recommend it: ConvergeSE
24 ways is the annual Christmas present to the web design and dev community. It’s an advent calendar, really, where we get a great post as a treat for the first 24 days of December. The posts are always well done and are done by a great mix of well-established web stars and up-and-comers.
