DECAF 2016

Screenshot of new DECAF website

Finally, new website.


This is about changing:

  1. Carry your laptop bag on one shoulder all the time? Use the other one and your body will thank you.
  2. Stop drinking too much coffee. Try tea.
  3. Change the routes you’re driving or walking.
  4. Start thinking about things you didn’t think of before.
  5. Talk to people you didn’t talk to before.
  6. Listen to TED talks about changing or watch Carpool Karaoke instead.
  7. Travel.
  8. Make a baby?

Do it!

Do not:

  1. Develop another JavaScript framework.
  2. Develop another CSS framework.
  3. Develop another PHP CMS.

Best coffee in the hood.

7 yrs later: new website slowly approaching. Plain and simple but with a lot of nifty details. Can’t wait for it to get finished.

We released a new version of our WordPress plugin called mailto:staff. You may go and grab it if you maintain a blog with several authors and want to write them emails.

Btw: the project will no longer be maintained. 🐼
If you'd like to take it over and continue development, feel free to contact us!

Achtmal Pfand

Bringe leere Club Mate Cola zurück zum Späti nebenan.
Ich: »Einmal Pfand, und dann noch…«
Sie (unterbricht): »Dit sind aber Achte!«
Ich: »Jaja, einmal achtmal Pfand, und dann noch…«
Sie (unterbricht): »Ick drück ooch jern nur Eene inne Kasse.«

Berlin, weeste.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Once more: BEM


Starting to use BEM for CSS in 2013/14 gave us a distinct boost to quality and performance.

It’s not that we didn’t know how to write modular CSS before. But BEM is like burning down your venue, leaving only low level CSS specificity.

And once you’ve figured out there’s some (element type based) pseudo scope with BEM, you’re about to write even more modular CSS.

As long as CSS does not provide scope, I think BEM is the best workaround we have.
