Today I resigned from Palantir, a company I’ve called home for almost six years. I’ve done a lot of exciting work at Palantir, but it’s time for new challenges. I don’t even know what those new challenges are yet — I don’t have a job offer and I’m not starting my own company. (I will be trying to finish my book on Sass and Compass in between now and what happens next, so watch for that.)
Homebrew is pretty damn sweet if you are a developer on Mac OS X. It’s the package manager that doesn’t suck.
But the developers that run Homebrew aren’t PHP developers. And their official policy of not providing a formula (homebrew’s name for a “package”) for software already included in Mac OS X means that PHP wasn’t going to be available in Homebrew.
I often get asked about recommendations I may have for good resources for learning CSS. I learned CSS during the dark ages. The only online resource was the spec itself (light blue paper background and all.) So I’ve never had a need to go out and find good CSS resources.
This Friday through Sunday, I’m going to San Francisco to attend a sprint to “rebuild the theme layer” in Drupal 8. This is the next exciting step in a journey I started nearly 3 years ago.
I’ll hope you’ll join me at the sprints as we combat Drupal 7 and the Arrays of Doom!
