Displaying a Progress Bar with HTML

Published on Mar 11, 2019

HTML5 now contains a markup tag progress. This displays a basic progress bar based on two attributes that you must specify: the current value and the max value. Using some basic Javascript, you can increment the progress bar so the user knows something is happening and will be done soon.

Simplifying the buzz word “Responsive Design”

Published on Feb 4, 2013

Every so often there is a new buzz word in the web development/design industry.  A few years ago it was HTML5 and CSS3.  Now it seems to be “responsive design”.  And of course this makes a lot of sense.  With more and more Internet users accessing the content on their laptop or desktop PC, tablets, and mobile phones, websites need to be able to be ready to serve up the content in an appropriate fashion.

In this article, I want to take a step back and help simplify this process because by stopping and thinking just a little bit, it doesn’t need to be complicated.  In fact it’s quite simple.

At the time of writing this article, my blog is only about 50% responsive, I am planning a new design soon that will take it to the next level.

Firebug - A developer's best friend

Published on Feb 11, 2009

I think a good place to start is to describe one of my favorite tools.  It's called Firebug, it's an add-on for Mozilla browsers.

At work, if one of my co-workers comes to me in the J-Block and asks a Javascript or CSS question, before I even consider helping them I ask if they reviewed the styles or the Javascript in Firebug.  9 times out 10 if it's a really easy answer, you'll see it almost immediately with the help of Firebug.
