10 Things I Learned From #sxsw

  1. 10 things I learned from #sxsw John Hamelink
  2. 1. Treat the web as one huge API… because it is one.
  3. 2. Show your work to the public before you finish. Embrace failure – fail early, fail often. Share back with your community. Default your work to open source** When we have the right to make that choice – this doesn’t apply to all of our work.
  4. 3. Don’t be Seduced by the power of the shiny
  5. 4. Don’t be a flash developer: don’tmake “frozen content” like they did (in the way Sencha do with ExtJS/Sencha Touch)
  6. 5. Use Nagios or Munin to detectyour servers are struggling before they fail.
  7. 6. If you don’t use configurationmanagement, you’re a donkey.
  8. 7. Don’t use LESSCSS, SASS is better.Code your colours in HSL because it’s easier to guess a colour.Build a class for each sprite – SASS can build sprite images and handle the background-position automatically.
  9. 8. Vertical Rhythm is important, never ignore it!
  10. 9. The cloud is awesome, we have tobe careful: we’re giving up our controlto too few companies – this is not how the internet was supposed to work!“The cloud has potential for a systemic disaster” – Juan Enriquez (helped decode the human genome)
