Web Design Is About Serving People's Needs: The Art of Web Design | PBS

Robin Good: A great short video from PBS brings together the views and opinions of three great web designers: Jason Santa Maria, Jeffrey Zeldman, Whitney Hess.

From BoingBoing.net: "The explosion of the internet over the past 20 years has led to the development of one of the newest creative mediums: the website.


Web designers have adapted through the technological developments of html, CSS, Flash, and JavaScript, and have mastered the balance between creativity and usability.


Now with the advance of mobile, the greatest websites have taken user experience and responsive design to the next level, and continue our evolution from print to a digital world."


Good stuff. Interesting. 8/10

The Official Google HTML & CSS Style Guide

The Official Google HTML & CSS Style Guide | The Web Design Guide and Showcase | Scoop.it

From the official guide: "This document defines formatting and style rules for HTML and CSS.


It aims at improving collaboration, code quality, and enabling supporting infrastructure.


...like other Google style guides, deals with a lot of formatting-related matters.


It also hints at best practices so to encourage developers to go beyond indentation.


Many style guide authors know the underlying motivation from the question whether to describe the code they write—or to prescribe what code they want to write. Not surprisingly then, in our HTML and CSS style guide you’ll find both (as much as you’ll still find a lot of different development styles in our not entirely small code base)."
