  • Stubbornella » Blog Archive » Woman in technology – Usually I avoid topics like women in technology because (1) it is a can of worms, and (2) I can really only speak for myself. For the most part, I’d rather be seen as a person in technology than a woman, but this weekend the twitterverse erupted with opinions about Google sponsoring female students to attend JSConf. As a woman who is often the only-woman-in-the-room, I want people to know it isn’t always easy. I was a bit shocked by the blatant failure to empathize.
  • How to import certificates into certificate stores (ColdFusion) – For secure connections to remote servers over SSL, all current versions of ColdFusion require the remote system's SSL certificate to exist in ColdFusion's certificate truststore. This includes any calls from <cfdocument>, <cfhttp>, <cfldap>, etc. The default truststore is the JRE's cacerts file. This file is typically located in the following places:
  • SEOmoz | The Web Developer’s SEO Cheat Sheet – When I first started at SEOmoz about 9 months ago, I was the web development intern. My experience prior to the internship was limited entirely to writing code. Since then, I have spent literally hundreds of hours expanding my knowledge into different areas. Specifically, I have focused on accepted SEO techniques and small business practices. My beginner SEO checklists of the last few weeks have been the tangible result of my newly acquired knowledge. In an effort to return to my roots, I spent the majority of the day compiling what I believe to be the mother of all technical SEO cheat sheets. The recommended viewing format of this cheat sheet is as a PDF rather than the traditional blog post (I found the blog posts inconvenient to print). Let me know if this new format works better for all of you. I also included snippets below so you can see what is on the cheat sheet before you download it. Enjoy!

  • Home – CFML Advisory Committee – CFML Advisory Committee – Welcome to the CFML Advisory Committee website.

  • Fun with JavaScript: jQuery and Konami Code | Your Inspiration Web – Today we’re going to take a small leap back in time to the year 1985, when a Konami developer (Kazuhisa Hashimoto) created the first version of Gradius (a video game for the Nintendo console). During game trials, Kazuhisa realized that it was really difficult to complete, and so he created a code which immediately gave the player all possible power-ups.

    <br />
    During this period in addition to math-based physics courses he taught an interdisciplinary course The Poetry of Physics which led to his collaboration with Marshall McLuhan and his research in media ecology and the evolution of language. His best known works are The Alphabet Effect based on a paper co-authored with McLuhan, The Sixth Language: Learning a Living in the Internet Age and The Extended Mind: The Emergence of Language, the Human Mind and Culture.

  • EEI Communications – EEI Press – The Elements of Internet Style

    The New Rules of Creating Valuable Content for Today's Readers

    Copublished with Allworth Press.
    ($24.95, 162 pages, softcover.)

    This is the completely updated new edition of our award-winning book, E-What?
    A Guide to the Quirks of New Media Style & Usage.

    The Elements of Internet Style will open your eyes to the major tech-driven trends
    in publishing—and Web-driven audience expectations—that no professional
    communicator can afford to ignore.

  • Every Web Site Is the Same: The Elements of Web Style | Jackfig – You can ask most anyone the question, “What is Web style?”, and the response may be as simple as a shrug or as complex as a theorem. That is, it’s anyone’s guess. But most people concerned about the matter would agree: it is an under-exploited element of the Web, with no commonly agreed upon standards or clearly identified best practices.

    The concept certainly exists; we found one of the best summaries once on the Rice University Web site:

    “Good web style is a complex subject, incorporating general principles of good writing style and good visual design as well as technical matters specific to the World Wide Web.”

    You won’t find a more succinct definition or, more importantly, a full disclosure of the three critical ingredients of Web style:

    Writing – Design – Technology

  • Web Style Guide – Consistently praised as the best volume on classic elements of web site design, Web Style Guide, now in its third edition, maintains an emphasis on fundamentals while bringing every chapter topic up-to-date.

    Written for web site designers in corporations, government, nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions, the book explains established design principles and covers all aspects of web design—from planning to production to maintenance. The guide also shows how these principles apply in web design projects whose primary concerns are information design, interface design, and efficient search and navigation.
    New for this edition:

    * a chapter devoted to universal usability
    * information on search engine optimization and the designs that improve it
    * a chapter on information architecture and how to promote its robust development
    * techniques for employing cascading style sheets in layouts and typographic design
    * 185 full-color illustrations
