24 jours du web (FR)

  • Day 1 : Quand Saas ne rend plus service : Author introduce the limits of SASS or for the two examples mentioned where a CSS post-processor (like PleeeaseCSS or AutoPrefixer or px_to_rem) or some grunt/gulp tasks can bring more value than CSS pre-processor (like SASS). Article also compare the best case when to use the extend syntax or a mixin.

  • Day 14  : Le nouveau : best and worst practices when you welcome a new member in your team. some food for thoughts !
  • Day 15 : Design poli : some thoughts about "gentle design" which will not hurt end users by doing something he did not want (like install some extensions updates and preventing him using the app for a while or doing some crappy pop-ups and alternatives).
