standards based fronteering wizardry

if you live on the frontend and brute force javacript all day, because css and html are not real languages, this podcast is most certainly not for you.

if you nerd out over semantics and web standards and progressive enhancement, this podcast is most certainly for you.

to be fair to the js mafia, this podcast is for you too! maybe even moreso…

have subscribed to chris’ newsletters for years, with almost every post teaching me a new technique or thought to add to my solutions arsenal.
