I got this 15 years ago. A great machine with great games.

I still enjoy playing on this from time to time. But recently it’s been my kids who use it the most. And I find that even more enjoyable. 🕹

Eric Bailey on design:

If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that the choices we make—or avoid making—have consequences. Design has been doing a lot of growing up as of late, including waking up to the idea that technology isn’t neutral.

Ten Years

Ten years ago today I became a dad. Nothing could have prepared me for all the work, laughter, tears and love that would be before me.

Today I’m the lucky father of three fantastic kids. But the feeling of holding Emma in my arms for the first time is fresh in my memory like it was yesterday.

Our UI library at work is built on @sveltejs.

During a presentation of the latest version someone asked to see an audit in Lighthouse.

My colleague had created a new page using our tools and ran the mobile fast 3g audit.

Results: 99, 100 and 100.

I ❤️ @sveltejs.

Post Apple event feeling: I think I need that big iPad Pro in my life. But will have to see them for myself first.

Accessible code?

Brad Frost comments on the accessibility team lead of WordPress resigning

I’m in charge of a11y at work. I always stress to other development teams that they need to test if their work is inclusive.

Some simple steps does it.

Before writing JavaScript for a component or a page, the markup needs to be valid semantic html.

Run tools like Axe. Does it pass?

Navigate using a keyboard.

Use the page using a screen reader.

This is a minimum a team should do before submitting the merge request.

Over time this has lead to better quality. But you need to constantly keep testing and focusing on it.
