Lots of Pieces Parts
Building on the basics
The core is HTML5 coupled with CSS3. The project at hand is getting the code right and validated to W3C standards is key. At that point it plays nicely in most browsers and allows the sites to scale nicely on all devices especially the smaller devices such as tablets and phones.
My coding tools of choice are Dreamweaver and Notepad++. Initially to make startup a bit easier I have used the Bootstrap CSS framework which uses the jQuery scripting framework. I have since moved to some simpler CSS frameworks and sidestepped jQuery completely. For blogging I chose Wordpress which uses PHP language coupled with the Mysql database system.
Grading on a curve
HTML5 / CSS3
Sass / Less
Bootstrap / jQuery
Wordpress / PHP/ mySQL
What this means is that I stay busy on my down time. The projects evolve as I learn. Making them play nice on phones, tablets and desktops is a constant battle. And tuning their component size down for quick response has become a priority.
There are a bunch of technlogies in play here. So check out the projects and see what's new.
