Art + Code

By Michael Mulvey on February 5, 2014 9:37 AM

From The Verge:

Your work could be at the heart of one of the largest digital art exhibitions the world has ever seen, thanks to a collaboration between London's Barbican Centre and Google.

The exhibition is called Digital Revolution, and from July 3rd to September 14th it will explore the impact of technology on art over the past 40 years. It will feature artists, designers, musicians, architects, and developers to reveal the artistry that's all around us, from the films that we watch to the games that we play. DevArt, its final act, will showcase three large-scale, "magical" works of art from established artists, and one that's yet to be announced. That's where you come in.

This show looks interesting, but to be clear, art + code is nothing new.

When I started my career as a web designer, guys like Joshua Davis, James Paterson, Robert Hodgin and Erik Natzke were creating amazing interactive art with code (and still are).

Go back farther and you'll find all the things John Maeda was experimenting with in the 90's.

Code Without Code

By Michael Mulvey on December 2, 2012 3:39 PM

Scriptkit an iPad app that allows you to create prototype iPad apps by simply dragging and dropping code snippets from a library of code and APIs.

The demo version of the app is free, but I just upgraded to the full version ($11.99) which allows you to save your prototype apps.

Pretty badass.

Scriptkit gets me excited about coding the same way Macromedia Adobe Flash used to get me excited about coding. I would never call myself a programmer, but I got to point with Flash where I was doing things like parsing XML and talking with PHP and databases. Flash empowered me to make websites and widgets without being an advanced programmer.

When you give artists and designers the ability to easily work with code amazing things can happen.

From Kristin at 37Signals:

one is part of a Ruby program and one is a contemporary poem.

-Webkit Winning

By Bryan Larrick on February 13, 2012 11:11 AM

Scott Gilbertson, over at webmonkey, has an interesting piece on developers preferring the -webkit prefix in their CSS, and how this could be bad for the web.

...at the CSS Working Group meeting, Microsoft, Mozilla and Opera announced that each are planning to add support for some -webkit prefixed CSS properties. In other words, because web developers are using only the -webkit prefix, other browsers must either add support for -webkit or risk being seen as less capable browsers even when they aren't.

Clearing floats, margins and other Windows IE delights

By Michael Mulvey on October 9, 2006 10:54 AM

I probably should have known about this bug a long time ago, but apparently Windows IE (I've only tested v6) likes to double your margins on floating DIVs. What's the solution? A tiny-ass, stupid line of code:

 display: inline;

Other CSS tips:
How To Clear Floats Without Structural Markup - now this one I have known about for a while and its very handy.

What I like to do when I'm testing out my CSS is to turn on borders all all DIVs in my document. Many times it takes the guessing out of why your page is behaving like it is:

div {
 border: 1px #333 solid;
}

and if by some chance you're old school and having table issues, you can do the same:

table td {
 border: 1px #333 solid;
}
