Today I started working my way through the slider portion of Heydon Pickering’s book, Inclusive Components. It’s been a good read so far and I’m working through all of it by building a modified version of his example code as I go. I’ve had to double check things quite a bit because of his CSS selector usage (it’s good, I’m just not used to the combinations he uses). I’ll work on it more tomorrow, and by the time I’m done with this I’ll feel much better about the accessibility of the sliders/carousels I build in the future.

After learning more about accessibility, I’ve realized I need to revisit a lot of the common patterns I’d follow when building things with HTML and CSS. I think I’ll spend the remainder of this project learning more and practicing with a focus on making things as accessible as possible.

Today’s post is limited in terms of creativity, but I think it will be quite useful to me in the future. I even learned about a few cursor types I didn’t think I could display on a webpage.

I wanted to give myself a 30 to 45 minute challenge today and see what I could come up with in terms of a layout for a post. It’s not particular good, but it really made me want some ramen. Unfortunately I can’t go out and get the good kind right now, so I’ll have to stick with a instant Cup Noodle style cup of ramen from Seiyu.

If you haven’t heard of Heydon Pickering, I certainly recommending checking out his website heydownworks.com, and learning all about the things he makes regarding web design and development. I watched a video of Heydon’s CSS Day 2019 talk about the Flexbox Holy Albatross and tried it out in this post. I’m still trying to full wrap my head around it (I feel like I could make a flexbox joke there), but it’s definitely going to be handy in the future.
