While working on a frontend project you’ll easily come to a point where you need data from a webserver that will be retrieved through an Ajax call. Serving mockup data from those endpoints is a tricky thing when you don’t run your frontend project on a webserver.
Luckily there is a way to easily write middleware using Connect for NodeJS. Other great thing: works with task-runners!
There are a few class naming conventions you can live by, the problem with most of them is writing long class names that tend to give your CSS a messy look without compound selectors.
Luckily Sass now supports compound selectors which will make our stylesheets a lot easier and better to maintain.
The web development population has grown significantly over the past years. A lot of people are choosing development as their trade and make a good living out of it.
The number of people using frameworks or libraries to speed up their development, or solve the parts of development they can’t do themselves has increased as well.
Is it a good thing, or are we shooting ourselves in the foot? I will share my view on the matter in this article.
If you want to use a single plugin on different WordPress installs you might want to go for a symlinked plugin folder. That way we can have one codebase and apply it on multiple installs.

Last weekend I went to WordCamp Europe in Leiden. It was my first WordCamp and I have to say; it was very awesome. Can’t believe I’ve never been to an event like this before and I should really start doing it more in the future.
I’ll fill you in on the experience, the speakers and give you my two cents of what I thought about the talks.
