Getting started with Flexbox grid systems

So what’s going on with grid systems? I mean Flexbox is here. It’s ready, the browsers are (more or less) ready. It’s about time.

We’ve been waiting for that centering […]

Have you checked your website’s speed lately? In a study conducted by Geoff Kenyon way back in 2011, he determined these standards for comparing your website speed against the rest of the Web: if your site loads in 5 seconds it is faster than approximately 25% of the web; if your site loads in 2.9 seconds […]
