Presenting DublinCSS

I have been actively involved with local meetups here in Dublin for more than half a year now. Yet, despite all the tech companies present here, there was no group dedicated primarily to the mastery of HTML/CSS/SVG.

At the Dawn of Spring

The first quarter of 2016 almost out of the way, and everyone around is waiting for the spring to finally settle. Now it’s a good time to take a small break and make a summary of the accomplishments I made so far. Everyone needs a bit of extra motivation every now and then, even if […]

Say “Hello” to Twitter Bootstrap

Recently I got involved in a project that makes use of Twitter Bootstrap and I can say I got very interested in the possibilities and opportunities this framework brings.

Nuclear launch detected: Trident Design goes live

It’s the very middle of the year and I am trying to respect another personal resolution regarding my own projects. Therefore I am launching today Trident Design, an online directory of resources for web designers and developers.
