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.


The Next Yahoo!

I haven’t read any commentaries on the new and recent Twitter change regarding the increase of characters per tweet (140 chars to now 280 chars) but I already have an opinion. And… that doesn’t mean that my opinion is very good, but, I share a few candid thoughts this morning via my vlog here. I thought that I’d have more to write and say about this particular topic but I’ve been staring at this draft for quite some time and have written and re-written a bunch of different things in the past 10 minutes, which, is already far too much time to give to such a small topic. Perhaps that is the point. Obviously, I’m negatively biased against Twitter already having formally quit from the service and have enjoyed a life without Twitter for quite some time now. Trust me when I say that life is indubitably better without it, especially after having…

The deal Jeff Bezos got on Basecamp

In 2006, Jeff Bezos bought a minority, no-control stake of Basecamp from Jason and me. We didn’t need any money to run the company, as we’d been profitable from the get-go, so none of it went to fund “our incredible journey”. As the Valley players say, we took money off the table.It was an unusual deal for a number of reasons. First, Basecamp remained an LLC, which it still is. Not a corporation. Bezos’ personal investment shop simply took the role of a member in the LLC. This means that even to this day our paperwork and administrative overhead is laughably simple (Basecamp has no CFO, not even a full-time accountant!).Second, there was no exit lined up! Jeff did have a one-time provision to sell his stake back to us after, I believe, seven years, but we didn’t trigger it, so now we’re in this together with no end in sight.What Jeff…

How to Add a Sitemap to Your WordPress Site

Every website needs a sitemap, but it might not be for the reasons you expect. Sitemaps do not improve your ranking in search engines. However, they do make sure more of your site’s pages get indexed. They also make sure those pages get indexed more quickly. This article presents evidence that the difference is astounding: Google with a sitemap: 14 minutes Google without a sitemap: 1375 minutes Yahoo with a sitemap: 245 minutes Yahoo without a sitemap: 1773 minutes I’m going to show you how to add a dynamic sitemap to your WordPress website.

Let’s Define Exactly What Atomic CSS is

As Atomic CSS (also known as Functional CSS) has been gaining in popularity, some confusion has occurred about similar related terms. The goal of this article is to clarify this terminology. There are other projects that use the term Atomic, including Atomic Web Design by Brad Frost. Atomic CSS is a completely separate concept from these. Let’s start by defining Atomic CSS: Atomic CSS is the approach to CSS architecture that favors small, single-purpose classes with names based on visual function. There are different ways to write Atomic CSS (see variations below). One example would be this: .bgr-blue { background-color: #357edd; } The term “Atomic CSS” was coined by Thierry Koblenz in his foundational article “Challenging CSS Best Practices” in October 2013. Some people started referring to this approach as “Functional CSS” some time later. Though there have been cases in the past where Functional CSS has been used to…

Password Policies and Drupal

People tend to choose bad passwords if they are allowed to. By default Drupal provides some guidance about how to “make your password stronger,” but there’s no enforcement of any particular password policy out of the box. As usual, there’s a module for that. More than one in fact. Thinking on password policies has evolved over the years. The United States National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has been working for some time on a new set of guidelines which are a good basis on which to formulate your own password policy. The default Drupal 7 password form Security is always a compromise between mitigating risk and convenience. A fairly recent piece of research on password strategies from Microsoft, for example, suggested that users should use simple memorable passwords for “low-risk” sites, reserving more complex passwords for sites where the risk warrants the higher effort involved. Not everybody will…

Is jQuery Still Relevant?

It took a minute, but I believe we have arrived at Baby Bear on the jQuery conversation. Some choice quotes from the ensemble cast blog post: Nathanael Anderson: The biggest negative for jQuery in this day and age is that browsers are a lot more standard in coverage and directly messing with the DOM is slow unless you can do everything at one time; and jQuery was not designed for large change groups. Todd Motto: Final thing from me: let’s not aim to dissuade jQuery developers from using it – it’s amazing, extremely mature and powerful, and its place in “modern web” has shifted, that’s all. In 5 years we’ll all be doing it wrong again. TJ VanToll: To me, jQuery remains the gold standard for a library with an elegant API design and comprehensive documentation. Although I may not use it in every app nowadays, I still find it…

Work Can Wait 4,380 days

Or maybe it can’t. It’s your choice — That’s the point.I love seeing the look on people’s faces when they learn I took 12 years off to raise my kids. They say, ‘But you’ve got such a great career in high tech! How’d you do that?’I’m living proof you can take a break from your career to do something important to you and still have the career you want when you’re ready. For me, that break was to raise my boys — for you, it could be to travel, care for a family member, pursue an interest, give back or just chill.Own your work-life decisionsI was the first person in my family to go to college. My Cuban-born mother had an eighth-grade education — my father graduated from high school. I earned a scholarship to Columbia University’s School of Engineering, where there were only three women in my electrical engineering class. After graduation, I got married and started my…
