A small reading list this week, due to there having been a bank holiday this week, and my pre-occupation with being a snot factory.
- Women talk design – Women Speakers for Your Next Conference
- Update and call for review. HTML manifest spec for offline apps v1 is published. Implementing in Gecko, Blink. “Devs and implementers, please let us know which V2 features should be prioritized.”
- Getting to know CSS Blend Modes – “CSS Blend Modes provide a way to specify how one layer will interact or “blend” with the one underneath. Until now, this was the domain of photo editing applications, but now they are available on the web using CSS itself!”
- Is Service Worker ready? – no. But Jank Architect has a useful page showing the implementation status of all the pieces needed to get to offline app utopia.
- There are more mobile-optimized sites than ever. So why are mobile pages getting bigger? – some interesting stats but no answer to the question asked
- Hacking with Unicode – presentation by Mathias Bynens, with a pile of poo on the astral plane. (Slides)
- Setting up a secure website with HTTPS and SPDY support under nginx on a Raspberry Pi by Matt Wilcox. The joys of setting up HTTPS can be everyone’s when Service Workers hit the streets
- the case against sharing – an interesting article “on access, scarcity, and trust” the commits the common mistake (made by San Franciscans) of thinking San Francisco is the whole world.
