The week is coming to an end and that means it is time for us to look back on the week that passed, the best design news, resources and other goodies. This week we look at new frameworks for developers, flat design vs. Skeuomorphism, as well as take a stroll down Windows and Mac OS memory lane, furthermore we look at why there is no mobile internet and 45 HTML tutorials you need to see.
Let’s be honest even though we all strive to be the best at everything most of us still make common mistakes that we honestly believe is the correct way to write them out. You are not the person to blame as we generally learn from online tutorials and from sample files that we may download to play around with.
The problem with this is what we are actually learning may not be proper, but rather what the tutorial author or author of the sample think is right, and results in a negative domino effect. Additionally, the same may apply to purchasing books and learning from them, as it all depends on the author and how they learned as well.READ MORE

When we have one few too many clients, we panic and begin to cut corners to squeeze in as many clients as we can into our schedule, and we end up working nights and weekends with buggy results. What if there is a way to save time and still manage the same amount of clients if not more?
Creating modular components is a step closer to reaching that goal, you can have 10, 20, 30, or even 40% if not more complete already with just several minutes of piece work.READ MORE
