I received your initial mail with anticipation, breathlessness even, but you didn’t say much. You left me wanting more, teasing me, I guess this is your plan – playing hard to get. It’s much too early to ask for my phone number though.
When writing an article, I sometimes find it difficult to come up with a title. Personally I prefer short titles, and often I find that others do too. The book I am currently reading, which was written in the 18th century, shows me that writers of that era often took a different view.
Last week I attended the excellent Fronteers conference in Amsterdam and while listening to a talk by Marcos Cáceres on responsive images, I had a thought on a potential polyfill solution. When I arrived home, I thought about it some more and today I managed to put it into practice.
With responsive design, one of the things that we often want to do is to change the stack order of certain elements, moving the aside on the left below the main text which we want to bring to the top. CSS3‘s Flexbox will do this for us, but there is a quicker, if dirtier, way which we can use now.
Those of us who work in the web community are constantly learning. New technologies, techniques, plugins, etc. appear every day, some we ignore others we dive into. As well as official documentation we also rely on the articles, blog posts and coding examples of others to help us get up to speed. When talking about and responding to such writings we should always remember something important: be nice.
