DPD - dConstruct dBrief

I couldn’t keep up with the processing my brain was doing with the stuff it was seeing and hearing.

dConstruct: where the future comes to life

dConstruct represents everything that is great and wonderful about humans: our creativity, initiative, collaboration and ability to approach some challenges in slightly leftfield yet genius ways.

Do as Little as Possible ∙ An A List Apart Column

I heartily concur with Lyza’s mini-manifesto:

I think we need to try to do as little as possible when we build the future web …putting commonality first, approaching differentiation carefully.

It’s always surprised me how quickly developers will reach for complex, potentially over-engineered solutions, when—in my experience—that approach invariably creates more problems than it solves.

Simplicity is powerful.
