Portland CSS guru Chris Coyier launches Digging Into WordPress
There are any number of awesome companies and people here in town that—for one reason or another—simply aren’t immediately identified as “being from Portland.” They’re companies like Panic, COLOURlovers, and SurveyMonkey. Brilliant companies that always elicit the same response: “THAT’s a Portland company?”
Now, granted, Digging Into WordPress is brand new. But I’m confident that it’s going to be good. Why? Well, because Chris’ other blog is one that has consistently evoked the “THAT’s a Portland company?” response. His other blog? It’s CSS Tricks, one of the best resources around for intelligible guidance on CSS hacks.
If Digging Into WordPress is even half as good as CSS Tricks, then Digging Into WordPress is a must-add for your feed reader.
What will Chris’ new blog cover? Glad you asked. Here’s how it’s been described.
DiggingIntoWordPress.com is the blog home for the upcoming book of the same name by Chris Coyier and Jeff Starr. Books and blogs are the perfect compliment to each other when it comes to learning web technologies. The blog is there for searchability, quick tips, and copy and pasteable code. The book is there for offline reference and that essential full-attention first read through when your brain is ready to soak in a ton of new information. Digging Into WordPress brings you the best of both.
