Zend Framework Route Context Plugin

I want to share a simple, yet very useful, custom Zend Framework plugin that we use on almost all of our projects. The plugin (and associated code in the layout file) provides the Zend Framework route context as CSS classes on the body element. This allows us to change the design (using CSS) and/or behavior [...]

Web Design and Web Development

Back in October, Jeffrey Zeldman tweeted something that I strongly agree with: Real web designers write code. Always have, always will. #aea This sparked many conversations including these two tweets from Chris Shiflett: According to @zeldman, real web designers write code. (I think he means HTML and CSS, not PHP, Perl, and Python.) What do [...]

Tagnabit Launched!

Last night we announced the launch of tagnabit, a social media aggregator. It’s “a service that aggregates tags from popular social media websites. It is useful for conferences or other events. Participants can use a shared tag across Twitter, Flickr, Technorati, YouTube and Delicious. Tagnabit then aggregates this content in one place.” The idea originally [...]

Open (local) Government

Last night I went to the Burlington, Vermont City Council meeting to listen to our newly re-elected mayor, Bob Kiss, give his State of the City speech and watch the City Council attempt to elect a new council president. I said “attempt” because, after 14 rounds of voting, they were still deadlocked 7-7 for opposing [...]

The Web Is Not A Visual Medium

A claim you may have heard me make before is that the web is not a visual medium. Some of you know exactly what I mean and some of you probably think I’m nuts. For those of you who think I’m crazy, let me elaborate. You, like most people, probably experience the web visually. However, [...]

CSS for Web Developers

The Burlington, VT PHP Users Group will be meeting Thursday January 22nd from from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Since we (Found Line) recently had some demolition – I mean renovations – done we’ve got a bit more space so thought we’d finally host the meeting. Here’s a description of the presentation, “CSS for Web [...]

VPR Reports Campaign 2008

For coverage of local Vermont and national election news, check out the VPR Reports Campaign 2008 page that we (well, Jason really) put together. The 2008 Election Map is a Flash widget provided by NPR but other than that the page is all XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript (via jQuery and jQuery UI). Check back throughout [...]

VSA Arts of Vermont Website

We recently launched the updated VSA Arts of Vermont website. Since VSA Arts of Vermont’s mission is to make “the world of the arts accessible to Vermonters of all abilities” it was critical that their new website be accessible. This was a challenge we readily accepted as web accessibility is something we take very seriously. [...]

Northeast Pools & Spas Website Launch

We just launched the new Northeast Pools & Spas website. I think Dave and Jason did a great job on the visual design and Liz did a fabulous job on organizing and helping to write the content! I worked primarily on the functionality for the construction and portfolio pages. The site is implemented using semantic [...]

New Found Line Website Launched

I am happy to report that the new Found Line website has launched! This new version includes some much needed content and visual updates and is now running in Zend Framework (although there is very little functionality beyond static content). All of the visual effects use jQuery, there is no Flash to be found on [...]
