The desk setup of a web developer can be super fun to behold. I especially enjoy seeing what other developers use in their daily work so I am always checking out setup sites. I figured it was about time to share mine, and perhaps my own dev setup will inspire someone else out there. Enjoy!
I do a lot of development with WordPress, and most every site needs forms in one way or another. Gravity Forms is my go-to, it is very easy to use and really powerful. The only issue I really have is the styling used is just bloated. Each page gets crowded with several style sheets and the code is very specific so it makes it hard to override.
Note: This project is no more, never gained any traction. Oh well! Code remains on Github…just in case.
A couple years ago I launched a project site called browsingbetter.com, as my own little “try to help the web” idea. After a long while overdue, the site has received a massive overhaul. Designer friend Josh Cagwin provided me a sweet concept PSD to work with and with the help of coffee and Twitter’s Bootstrap, the monster has a new face.
The web is one of the most exciting places to work because it is ever changing and evolving. Much like the human race, the web grows and adapts to influence over time and without a helping hand every so often that adaptation can drift off course. It is important for those of us who live and love the internet to continue striving to help push it forward, iterate on the old and embrace the new.
