JQuery Plugin Project – FancyMe Alphabetical Tab Navigation

What can I say? I found this plugin-development to be a quite interesting hobby. Once I gave it a try, I couldn’t stop. And after making the tabbed navigation, I knew there was more I could do with it. So this next plugin was born. The alphabetically-ordered tab navigation is something I’m quite proud of.

Continuing with the plugin project, I bring to you a simple tab navigation. The result is as follows.

JQuery Plugin Project – FancyMe Accordion

I’ve been working on this project for a while and I’m happy to finally be able to publish it. It’s a series of JQuery plugins with the peculiarity that they have several color themes than can be changed through a parameter in the function call, without having to touch the CSS. The first one in […]

Go Live! New version of my site!

Hi everyone! I’m back from the dead. I had not posted in a while, I was so not happy with my last blog… and it took time to get it the way I wanted but here it is! Yes, it is still not finished but I wanted to get it out there nevertheless. Some things […]

UX Job Recruiting: What’s it about?

I just recently got myself involved with the whole recruiting process of my company and I must say it’s been a really interesting experience.

When we ‘asume the user knows’

I’ll confess I’m an Amazon virgin. Why? Now, don’t look at me like that. I know it’s weird, but I just enjoy bookstores too much. Nevertheless, when a book’s not there, it’s not there, and I decided I’d give Amazon a try. Since I was a first-timer, after deciding to start the check out process, […]

The Pros and Cons of Responsive Web Design

And, in risk of repeating myself too much, I think it’s one of the best web design related books I’ve read so far. If you still don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read Ethan’s […]

A Couple of Books You Should Read

Really, just because you haven’t heard of me, it doesn’t mean I’m floating around in some river. I swear. So don’t worry too much (though I appreciate it if you do). I’ve been up to my neck with stuff to do… and in need of some free time. But I’ve missed my blog for way […]

The Pros and Cons of Working with JQuery Mobile

I’ve been working with the mobile web (either designing or front-ending, I tend to do both) for almost four months now and I’ve learned a great deal in that time. One of the many things I’ve learned from has been the use of the JQuery Mobile framework for mobile web experience implementation. As you can […]

How to Design a Website Online

Nowadays, with the existing variety of online applications, many of our daily tasks can be handled without the need of a pre-installed software on the computer. But can an entire web design process be carried out without desktop applications? It is not always easy to get access to the necessary or preferred software packages, so […]
