I’m currently rewriting our front end development guidelines at work. As I’m working on the semantic HTML part, Bruce Lawson publishes The practical value of semantic HTML.
I should link up his post and call it a day. I love it. 😃
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.
I feel the need to dive deeper into Rust.
Getting ready for Anthrax! 🤘
Quiet before the show starts.
During a recent discussion at work I was reminded of The Fallacies of Distributed Computing by Harry Roberts.
If you build and structure applications such that they survive adverse conditions, then they will thrive in favourable ones.
I feel that it needs repeating every year.
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.
Long ago me and some friends started a tradition of watching The Nightmare Before Christmas the night before Christmas Eve.
Some twenty years later I’m now watching it every Halloween 🎃 with my kids instead. ❤️
Post Apple event feeling: I think I need that big iPad Pro in my life. But will have to see them for myself first.
I really like that Halloween is becoming more and more “a thing” in Norway! 🎃 👻
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.
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.

This is the AmpliFi HD. Earlier this year I bought this to improve my flaky WiFi.
I no longer have flaky WiFi. I have fast stable WiFi. I ❤️ fast and stable WiFi.
Also I bought 500/500 fiber today. Just days after I complained I couldn’t get it a new service arrived. 😃
Super fun evening at work today. A bunch of us got together and played Quake 3 in LAN. Must be at least 15 years since I last did that. 🎮
James Bond and a girl named Alma
Three years ago today, me and my wife were watching James Bond movies. The Daniel Craig ones. It was just us in the house, my in-laws had picked up the kids in the afternoon.
It was still twelve hours until Alma were born.
We had finished Casino Royal and were starting to watch Quantum of Solace when my wife said she weren’t able to follow along anymore.
After a long night and a couple of hours at the hospital Alma was born.❤️
I don’t think my wife will ever watch those movies again.
Seams like “sharing” a photo from Photos to micro.blog fails.
Same photo from app works fine.
End of season
