It’s been a big week for new developments in the web design word. Bootstrap and Font Awesome both officially released their latest versions — both of them focused on faster and better load and rendering for mobile devices.
Hey gang! I hope you had an outstanding week. It’s been a super productive week here in the design and code labs.
This week, I have a couple of stories to tell you. One… ugh… kind of embarrassing about something I did (or, rather, didn’t do) related to SEO… Maybe it will help you avoid the same pitfall.
Don’t ever give up! And I had a chance to recall a special moment from some 33+ years ago and share that in this week’s video.
A brand new year, and it is time again for the great push to make old websites new again. It happens every year, like clockwork.
This year has been filled with some pretty awesome projects. In this weeks video, I share the year in review, fom what we were working on in Q1, all the way up to today, and then what we have in store for the first few months of 2018.
This week, we were benchmarking the server-response time for a client’s website. To do that, we used a third party service. To find the third party service, we googled “website speed test” and clicked on the first link.
Unfortunately, that link wouldn’t load. Or rather, I was too impatient to wait for it to load.
So I went elsewhere and used a different service.
Let this be a lesson: if your website is too slow, your visitors (and potential customers) will go elsewhere.

As an important a message as I’ve made yet, now more than ever it is increasingly important to ensure your websites performance is super optimized. With the fall of the Net Neutrality protections yesterday in the USA, the future of whether Internet traffic will be throttled is uncertain.
The big guy is away this week enjoying the warm sunshine of Florida. That means that all I had my hands full this week.
