Here’s a clever use of flexbox: have a form field stretch to fill up most of the space and a button fill up what’s left.

This tool for building ScrAPIs is an interesting development—the current trend for not providing a simple API (or even a simple RSS feed) is being interpreted as damage and routed around.
Some easily-digestible nuggets of advice on public speaking.

There’s a new event in town (“town” being Brighton). It’s called Connections and the first event takes place on February 4th.
Actually, it’s not really that new. Connections has been carved from the belly of Skillswap.
After a while, it got somewhat tedious to have to explain to potential speakers and attendees that they should “just ignore the name—it’s not really about swapping skills.”
Hence, Connections; a much more appropriate name. And yes, it is a nod to Saint James of Burke.
Tickets are available now. They’re free. But if you grab a ticket, you’d better show up. If you can’t make it, please let us know—either me or James—so that we can pass the place along to someone else. If you have a ticket, and you don’t tell us you can’t make, and then you don’t show up, you won’t be able to attend any future editions of Connections …and that would be a real shame, because this is going to be a jolly good series of events.
