Working as a developer means you have to learn to read source code and project your own needs into each website. You have to learn which projects require a set of codes, and which projects can be created entirely from scratch. This process is learned through enough repetition and skill within the industry.
I want to use this article to discuss some finer points with open source web development. Creating projects based on free CMS’ is often the quickest and simplest way to go. But you need to know how to handle open source scripts and keep yourself from running into a wall. This requires a bit of practice, but also just some time dedicated to playing with your script of choice.

I am asked each year – without exception – for my business card. And yet, I am embarrassed to say that until recently, I haven’t even had one! I know, that’s bad, because business cards are important. In fact, it’s even worse for me because I’m always harping on my creative friends to get a website up when something as simple as a nice business card can make an equally good impression on a prospective client. It’s sort of a no brainer.
The art of writing articles is not always easy to pickup right away. You’ll need to spend a lot of time practicing writing, but also reading similar articles or books which peak your interest. Only through reading others’ writings can you understand more complex vocabulary and grammar. But keep in mind that not all complicated writings are good or worthwhile.
In this article I’d like to take a deeper look into writing articles which captivate your audience. Articles can be published in print, such as newspapers or magazines. But you could also publish online to a blog or web magazine where readers have access from any computer in the world. Because there is such a huge global audience you’ll really need to determine your own writing style and what makes you stand out.
Many advocates towards mobile web design recommend starting with a smaller layout and scaling up through responsive design. This is a popular set of techniques which have been adopted over the past couple of years. However I would argue there is still room for mobile-specific websites in some particular instances.
In this article I’d like to look over the major differences between a single responsive design and two separate desktop/mobile layouts. There are some obvious benefits to both methods but I think the best solution ultimately depends on the type of website. This means freelancers should understand the needs of their clients and which solution works best on any particular project. The design process isn’t always straightforward and usually requires time for introspection.
