Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools and useful resources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.
This week’s selection: CSS outline, CSS dismissal, portfolio tips, a font with bad kerning to piss of people, :empty and :blank in CSS, vector tool in the browser, image compressor tool, performance, what makes great developers, etc.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
