Text replacement with Cufón By Patrick Lin For a very long time, the web was filled with very plain fonts. Unpleased with this lack of variety, a group of developers invented sIFR, which used Javascript and Flash to replace boring text with lively fonts. But sIFR had a problem: not everyone liked or used Flash. Text replacement with Cufón

Forrst is a community for developers and designers Header re-redesign Laura Moraiti A few new iterations on the mobile navigation, thanks to @Oiseau and @kenil for their input 1.a) Centered logo, with "Top read" and "Search" on the sides as easy access and a 100% width "Menu" button that activates a dropdown. The dropdown features the main categories in a column with associated color and then the other items with their icon (in larger size) 1.b) The same but using all caps. I'm not sold on either one. 2) A different approach, logo alone centered top and then a quick nav including "Top read", "Menu", "Last news", "Search" and "User", the dropdown layout is same as in 1.b). 3) Reduced navigation: logo on left and buttons for "Menu" and "Search". In this case the dropdown has 3 columns and in the bottom placed in two columns the other items with their icon. 4.a) A variation over 3, with "Top read", "Search" and a minimized icon "..." that opens "User" and "Last news".

How to be a Programmer: A Short, Comprehensive, and Personal Summary

Debugging is the cornerstone of being a programmer. The first meaning of the verb to debug is to remove errors, but the meaning that really matters is to see into the execution of a program by examining it.

Get Started! administrator Beginning Programming Tutorials C++ is a very common programming language, and a good language to start learning basic concepts with. I'm not going to say that it is the best language for a new programmer to try to master. If you asked 10 different programmers that question, you'd likely get 5 different answers.
