  • With people relying on browsers ‘Reader View’ to get the content they want, faster and without distractions, is a Read Only Web ahead?

I/O

This year was expended effort behind the scenes. Site migrations and archiving, learning an updated modern Javascript ES6 and new layout method with CSS Grid etc.

With the extra time, I was designing, coding and learning. I have a list of web technologies I need to take on, and I ticked a lot more from my list than ever. Next year I aim to release some new projects and have more things people will get to see and use. See you in 2018!

Follow my up to the minute thoughts on Twitter and keep up with my projects on CodePen.
