Layout Design of Web Pages

Layout Design of Web Pages

Any web designer will agree that the appearance of a website layout design can be as important as the content, and just like good (or bad) content, it can make or break a website. The best content will appear mediocre at best when the presentation is lacking.

And when it comes to presentation, there are several layers to it. There’s the resources a designer has to work with for one. Graphics, audio, fonts…  they all feature into a great finished product, and their quality can make a huge difference. However, before you need to decide WHAT to put, you need to figure out WHERE to put it.

In other words, layout designing. How to set up the basic layout design of the page is one of the most important aspects to designing a site. Now, the client may well have specific wishes that they don’t want to deviate from, but more often than not, they’ll pay more attention to images, videos and the like, and less to the actual page layout design. There is a certain ‘standard’ of what is currently considered trendy, and the go-to layout.

Git Is Your Single Point Of Truth

Git Is Your Single Point Of Truth

This is a post by Jezen Thomas, a freelance software developer spending most of his time writing software with Ruby and JavaScript. This was originally published on his blog. Follow him on Twitter.

Software startups today use a plethora of project management tools, and not all of them are created equal. Regardless of which one has the most bells and whistles, the shiniest marketing site, or employs the most rabid of sales representatives and evangelists, there is one value that I hold in higher regard than any other: longevity.

In any STEM discipline, a core part of an engineer’s daily work is to run sanity checks. As per that old adage, “A good programmer is one who looks both ways before crossing a one-way street.” Sanity checks are rendered somewhat less sane when a single point of truth can’t be established.

Using UUIDs in Yesod

I’ve recently been tinkering with a small web application written in Haskell with the Yesod framework. I decided I would like to use Universally Unique Identifiers for one my models, as the identifier for the model would be exposed to the user.
