Goodbye 2014

A brief round up of what I did this year, mainly for myself but you can read it if you want.

A jQuery plugin for mobile date input

Not sure if this is of any real use, but it was a good side project to look at how to make a jQuery plugin. I wouldn’t stare too hard at any of the code, it’ll make you cry.

Mobile date selector demo page redesign

I did a quick update of this site, the previous design was looking tired and too pink.

Accessible HTML video as background

Accessible video seems to be one of my ‘things’ now. Following the success of my previous articles on autoplay I decided to have a think about a new fad that’s cropped up a lot recently where a full page or whole panel video plays behind the hero content of a website.

Started using CodePen

I love the idea of CodePen and it’s proved to be an excellent way to collaborate on code. Pair programming with none of the bad breath and personal space invasion!

Hacker News – Why don’t you use Bootstrap

This was an O.M.G moment when my post got to the front page of Hacker News and I had no idea about it until it started getting a LOT of comments. Many are not complimentary but it was good to see it stir up discussion.

New job at M&S Labs

The big news is that I’m leaving Forward Partners and joining the team at M&S Labs. It will be sad to say goodbye to the Forward Group after three and a half years (equal time spent between uSwitch and Forward Partners), but I’m excited to get stuck into my new job in the New Year!

    My name is Macie. And I am a professional academic writer with many years of experience in writing.

    My main focus is to solve problems related to writing. And I have been doing it for many years. I have been with several groups as a volunteer and have assisted people in many ways.
    My love for writing has no end. It is like the air we breathe, something I cherish with all my being. I am a passionate writer who started at an early age.
    I’m happy that I`ve already sold several copies of my books in different countries like France and others too numerous to mention.
    I also work in an organization that provides assistance to many people from different parts of the world. People always come to me because I work no matter how difficult their projects are. I help them to save money, because I feel happy when people come to me for professional help.

    Hi Everybody
    Thanks for checking out my about page. My name is Austin.
    I have worked since high school in this niche. My passion for writing started at a young age. I wrote short stories as a child and eventually went on to work with my school newspaper.
    This early tryst into reporting eventually led me to academic writing. There is plenty of work for professional writers. I specialize in essays, but have the skills to do all types of academic writing.
    Reach out for more information about rates and a price quote. I’m looking forward to helping you.
