Umbrella.JS - a Viable jQuery Alternative?

By Brian Geary on Oct 1, 2018 9:05:00 AM

Consider the lowly umbrella: A mundane object, often cheaply made and inexpensively acquired, and with a singular habit of failing to do the job it was designed for. In anything but a light rain that falls straight down, an umbrella—even one of those big golf umbrellas—will keep very little of you dry. And if you’re sharing it with someone, forget it.

Responsive Web Apps Vs. Native Mobile Apps

By Brian Geary on Oct 25, 2017 9:05:00 AM

Remember when “surfing the web” was a thing? The very phrase seems as antiquated as the dial-up modems we used for that purpose.
