The new radial gradient syntax

Back in Jan¬≠u¬≠ary I wrote a post explain¬≠ing the new lin¬≠ear gra¬≠di¬≠ent syn¬≠tax, and promised to return to explain the equiv¬≠a¬≠lent for radi¬≠al gra¬≠di¬≠ents when it had been imple¬≠ment¬≠ed some¬≠where.

A Notional Proposal for a Responsive Images Syntax

As you’re prob­a­bly aware, the search is under­way for a new respon­sive images syn­tax.

Read­ing this arti­cle made me con­sid­er the prob­lem, and I’ve put togeth­er a notion­al syn­tax based on the pos­i­tives and neg­a­tives of all of the pro­pos­als.

I‚Äôve updat¬≠ed my Speak¬≠ing page to include more con¬≠fer¬≠ences, more videos, and a lit¬≠tle on my speak¬≠ing require¬≠ments and pref¬≠er¬≠ences. I‚Äôm plan¬≠ning to cut down on the num¬≠ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter¬≠est¬≠ing offers and oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ties, so please get in touch if you‚Äôre organ¬≠is¬≠ing an event.
