Tag cloud of random sizes in pure CSS
An answer to the question which should not have been asked
I never thought that I would write a post about diversity. But as the unicorn law says that being a woman in tech you will be eventually speaking about women in tech, I do so now. However I'm doing this not because it is a strong will of mine. Something happened which makes me to respond.
Style-guide the smaller things
I've been presenting SC5 Style Guide several times during this year sharing my experience of using it for one of the SC5's clients, Elisa. Assuming that Elisa is a huge mobile operator with a lot of websites and a need to keep those websites visually consistent, there is no wonder that the SC5 Style Guide as a tool provides benefits there. But what about smaller websites? Would it be useful there? I did not know the answer to this question and wanted to experiment. The experiment was conducted on my blog codebase.
JSCS in use
This time I would like to share my experience of keeping a codestyle in one of my working projects. This is about a new tool called JSCS which we have recently chosen with the team and now are very pleased with the result.
Run on time (about Mac applications)
I use the same laptop for both work and personal needs. This is useful but makes me see to keeping my work-life balance. I do this simply — turn off all the applications running when I finish my working day in the evening. The only issue is not to forget to open them again next day. But this process can be automatized. :-)
The so different frontend community and how we deal with it
Long time ago I could read and learn about web development in Russian only. Later, having completed an English language course, I began to read articles and blogs in English more and more. The same went for conferences: I visited Russian-speaking conferences at first and later switched to English-speaking conferences in Europe. In both articles and conference talks, I noticed how the content was different depending on the language used. Sometime I even thought that the communities evolve in different ways and follow different directions.

Docpad with the taste of BEM
Let me present a stub for docpad-run project with bem-built static assets. If you ever wanted to be a generic blog holder equiped with nice and neat static files, here we go.
HTML5 mobile apps with native UI on Steroids
Recently I attended Front Trends 2014 in Warsaw. This is an awesome conference which you should (no, definitely have to!) attend in 2015. Besides incredible main programm Front Trends provides a set of Lighting Talks. This year I was a part of it presenting Steroids, a framework and a toolkit for developing HTML5 mobile apps. If you did not have a chance to hear it, this offline text presentation is for you.
Switching to bem-core#v2
The bem-core library goes futher and there already is 2.0.0 version available. This blog was safely switched to the new major version with some diff to the code. Now so can do you. Careful examination of the version changelog will help you with it. Look how I did this.
