But why?! 😳😳😳
The last 10 years of web development have just been a long, slow walk back to the fantastic developer ergonomics and resilience of a PHP web app.
In other news, today is my last day with MOJ. I’m looking forward to a nice break over xmas and new year but after that I’ll be looking for a new role. If you or someone you know needs a designer then get in touch.
RTs appreciated 😊
Does anyone else instinctively, repeatedly hit “command-s” when working on something b/c of some previous traumatic experience where you almost lost important work or is that just me?
I have two open positions on the dev team @Slate and am happy to help make connections in DC tech for anyone out there that could use it. DMs are open if you’re into that sort of thing. twitter.com/CapitolCom/status/12…
This is awesome! I usually fall short in trying to succinctly describe what Audio Description is to a client, but thanks to @svinkle I shall use Peppa Pig clips as an example of how a narrator would describe action on a screen! scottvinkle.me/blogs/blog/access… #a11y r/t @abrightclearweb

Tuesday hot take: in case of disagreement, developer opinions on naming things for design systems should override both content and design. Devs are the biggest users of DS, have existing mental models (eg HTML element names), and have the most day-to-day experience naming things
This may be a long shot but I know how powerful the Twitter world can be. I’m profoundly deaf and have been out of work since 2009. Loads of barriers due to employers being unsure of taking deaf people on. Looking for data input jobs using computers. Retweets greatly appreciated
What would you want to see on the schedule at a developers conference targeted for #WordPress devs (not a WordCamp)?
This wouldn’t be a WordCamp or any event officially associated w/ the Foundation.
Hey #WordPress fam, if you’re into speaking and want to speak at a WordCamp, @WordCampLanc speaker applications are LIVE! 2020.lancasterpa.wordcamp.org/20… Check it out and try your hand at submitting some talk suggestions. Looking forward to seeing you there.
me: do you want it done quickly or do you want it done right?
@keithmadams Pointing out that “serverless” is just the PHP execution model for other languages is a favorite pastime of mine.
