Second day of Frontend Conf Zürich 13. The schedule looks promising. Here are my picks of today.
Dan Rubin - The New Language of Web Design
Responsive Web Design
Term borrowed from architecture. Example: Building in Paris where the amount of incoming light is changing over the day.
A scroll is a roll of papyrus, parchment, or paper which has been written, drawn or painted upon for the purpose of transmitting information or using as a decoration.
30 years later, apple reinvents scrolling and moves on to panning.
Naming of bootstrap
First was Blueprint, but that was too closely connected to styleguide. Blueprint (CSS) already taken.
Better practice > best practice
A best practice today may be outdated in a couple of years.
Fold/Above the fold
The fold, as used in web design, describes the area which is visible in the browser’s viewport without scrolling. A better practice name for this may be the scroll.
Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming. In other words, the bleed is the area to be trimmed off.
