The Web Design Survey from A List Apart

CSSEdit 2.5 and Coda

MacRabbit just updated CSSEdit to version 2.5, which brings some new features such as tabbed windows and the X-ray inspector for all of your CSS needs. I’ve been using this quite a lot since the 2.0 release, the new features have been very helpful with development; I can’t recommend this program enough.

Panic just released Coda, which is an integrated web development solution, part Transmit, part SubEthaEdit and Terminal, with CSS support all rolled into a single interface. Personally I started on Dreamweaver, but dumped that for a combination of Textmate, CSSEdit and Transmit for all of my development needs. I think Coda can give Dreamweaver a run for it’s money, Coda is a much more affordable solution for a freelance developer.

The Textmate-CSSEdit-Transmit combo work quite well for me, but Panic’s new program looks very interesting, I may have to download a copy and see how it works. (via MacRabbit Blog | stevenf)

Gone Freelance

As of the beginning of April, I’ve left my job as Senior Web Devloper at Evolve Media, to work for myself and build a business doing graphic design and web development. I’ve recently updated my portfolio with some new projects, but I have a lot more work to add and I’m working on updating my website as well.
