rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

What is the Future of Front End Web Development?

I was asked to do a little session on this the other day. I’d say I’m underqualified to answer the question, as is any single person. If you really needed hard answers to this question, you’d probably look to aggregate data of survey results from lots of developers. I am a little qualified though. Aside from running this site which requires me to think about front end development every day and exposes me to lots of conversations about front end development, I am an active developer myself. I work on CodePen, which is quite a hive of front end developers. I also talk about it every week on ShopTalk Show with a wide variety of guests, and I get to travel all around going to conferences largely focused on front end development. So let me take a stab at it. Again, disclaimers: This is non-comprehensive These are just loose guesses…

5 Best Call-To-Action Techniques To Turn Visitors Into Customers

A website isn’t necessarily 100% effective in increasing the revenue of a business by merely having words and images on the page. In creating a website, you should make visitors more encouraged to go through the different pages to see what you offer. The final step should cause them to either sign up or buy the products, and this can be done by sound call-to-action techniques. To make this happen, a call-to-action step is necessary. But how can this be done? What is a CTA? A call-to-action or CTA is an image or a line of text that provokes visitors and customers to take some action. This simply means that incorporation of something visually enticing to make website visitors interested in what the site/business has to offer and finally taking the action to click on it. An action that you want people to take may range from booking an appointment,…

Using Kotlin to make Android APIs fun again

Kotlin announcement at Google I/O 2017If you haven’t heard, Kotlin is now a first class citizen on Android and we couldn’t be more thrilled at Basecamp. We’ve been using Kotlin since it hit 1.0 last year and we recently got to 100% Kotlin in the Basecamp 3 Android app.One of my favorite features in Kotlin is extension functions. They let you extend functionality in classes without inheriting from them. We make great use of extension functions at Basecamp to simplify and add clarity to Android APIs that are verbose (or that we just don’t like). Below are a few example of ways that we leverage extension functions to make Android development easier on a day-to-day basis.Set a View heightSetting the height on a View programmatically in Android is annoying (and I’m being nice). With a Kotlin extension, you can pretend that Android makes it easy for you:fun View.setHeight(height: Int) { val params = layoutParams…

5 Reasons Not to Require Composer in Your CMS

Some people love Composer.  They use it to build their PHP projects and manage all the external libraries and dependencies. They love it so much they say things like this: “Composer should be the only way to build a Drupal code base.” That approach is misguided, and I’m going to give you 5 reasons why. Composer is a great tool, but it’s far more limited than some people realize. I’m going to mostly write about Drupal in this blog post, because it is further down the Composer path than any other CMS. But, some platforms like Magento and Typo3 are headed that way too.  [[ This is a content summary only. Visit for full links, other content, and more! ]] Source:

Taking Vacation When No One is Paying You to Take Time Off

My family usually takes two “bigs” trips each year: one spent visiting family across the country and another to explore places that are new to us. This is no problem for my wife. Her employer gives her four weeks of paid vacation every year and she can bank on that when we’re planning where we want to travel and how long we want to spend there. So lucky! The problem for me, however, is that no one is paying me to take time off. It’s kind of ironic in a way because my wife has one employer who pays her to not work for a limited amount of time, but I have many employers who do not do the same for me. That’s one of the many benefits that often comes with full-time employment and something we may even expect an employer to provide. For me and others who call…

The Tools of an HTML Email Workflow

Last week’s ShopTalk Show was all about HTML Email. It’s such a fascinating subject, as technically it is front-end web development, but it almost feels like a bizarro alternate universe. We have dozens of browsers to worry about, they have hundreds of clients to consider. We worry about whether fancy new APIs are supported, they worry about whether padding is supported. We have grid layout, they have…. grid layout?! It’s tempting to make the joke: “It’s coding like it’s 1999!”, but as we talk about in this episode, that’s not really true. Aside from all that, another thing I thing fascinating are all the tools involved. Lemme think this out. Creation Tools: Bare Metal You can create an email with just HTML. I’m sure quite a lot of HTML email is created this way. Open code editor, create HTML email, send HTML email. I know I’m tempted by this and…

What’s that mystery in your inbox costing you?

The inbox is the center of everything. Whether it’s email, assignments, messaging, chatting, IM, whatever, if someone wants you to see something, it shows up in an inbox of some kind.The design of the inbox has more impact on our daily decision making than any other part of any piece of software we use. It’s fucking important.If you use a group chat tool like Slack, HipChat, Microsoft Teams, or something similar, your inbox — and, therefore, your day — is filled with mysteries, secrets, and “Whats?”. You’re probably so numb to it that you don’t realize how much of your time and attention is being wasted.“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” -George OrwellYou’re stumbling around in the dark all day long because of a simple design pattern. The pattern is core to group chat, no matter the tool. It’s a fundamental flaw of the medium hidden in plain sight.The inbox in…
