🔗Andy Bell: Front-end is so much more than building designs
”Only by starting those fires have I developed into a more experienced designer and developer who knows the danger signs and importantly, learned the value of working slowly and methodically.”

Word Wrap Podcast: Does valid and semantic HTML still matter?🎙
Great discussion with Ben Myers.
Our mission is to make the most usable user experience. And so the way to do that, the secret sauce, is to give the device as much information as possible, to be as expressive as possible about our intent, so that the device has all the information it needs to be able to create the most usable user experience. And that is what semantics is for…
…I believe personally, that expressiveness beats out any other mantra about code cleanliness or anything like that. And writing expressive code has never led me astray.
Open UI: Solving a Multi-Decade Problem
This presentation by Melanie Edwards and Greg Whitworth is a great introduction to the Open UI project and its goals. Today, component frameworks and design systems reinvent common web UI controls to give designers full control over their appearance and behavior. We hope to make it unnecessary to reinvent built-in UI controls, but for those who choose to do so, we expect that these design systems will benefit from Open UI's specifications and test suites.
