My Name In Print

I hope you’ll for­give a lit­tle self-pro­mo­tion, as I’d just like to play a few quick notes on my own trum­pet. The lat­est issue of Net mag­a­zine is now on sale, and fea­tures a tuto­r­i­al arti­cle, Cre­ate A Dynam­ic Con­tent Pan­el, writ­ten by me.

In the arti­cle I explain how to build a dynam­ic Con­tact area, as we did on our recent redesign of Preloaded.com, using the Web Stor­age API and the BBC’s Glow Javascript library.

I’m not sure what the rights sit­u­a­tion is with this arti­cle, but I hope that at some point in the future I’ll be able to post it here on my blog. But in the mean­time, you can buy a copy of Net mag­a­zine in the UK at all good newsagents, as the say­ing goes (I don’t know if it will be in over­seas edi­tions also).

On the sub­ject of print, I’m also cur­rent­ly writ­ing a book about CSS3 which should be pub­lished lat­er this year. I’ll have more infor­ma­tion on that near­er the time.


New to Firefox: ‑moz-calc and :-moz-any

The lat­est night­ly releas­es of what will become Fire­fox 4 have imple­ment­ed a cou­ple of exper­i­men­tal new CSS fea­tures. The -moz-calc func­tion allows cal­cu­la­tions on length val­ues, and the :-moz-any selec­tor per­mits group­ing of sim­ple selectors.

If you have a night­ly build of Fire­fox you can see a lit­tle demo I’ve put togeth­er of them in action.

Aside

I’ve updat­ed my Speak­ing page to include more con­fer­ences, more videos, and a lit­tle on my speak­ing require­ments and pref­er­ences. I’m plan­ning to cut down on the num­ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter­est­ing offers and oppor­tu­ni­ties, so please get in touch if you’re organ­is­ing an event.
