A custom module for z-index manipulation of DOM element groups using TDD with QUnit

0 comment

A well tested custom module using jQuery and QUnit for testing.

TDD & using QUnit

Re-learning the very basics and having desire to start on the right foot, I chose to create a custom library that aims to solve some common user interface problems that I've faced in previous projects.

After doing a bit of research, I chose to use QUnit to employ test driven development for my project and decided to create a module that will handle z-index re-ordering that can respond to client, system or user events.

A guide to blogging success

When blogs were first introduced to the world wide web in the 1990’s, they mainly consisted of an individual drawing upon a certain topic for discussion or a somewhat online personal diary.

How to write compelling copy

0 comment

What is copywriting? Well, copywriting is the art of constructing a web of persuasive words to promote a product, service or person to encourage them to take some form of action. Whether this be filling in a web form enquiry, or picking up the phone to contact you and make that purchase.

The copy for your company brochure, website or blog is a potential gateway to entice the public to use you instead of your competition.

0 comment

Have you ever had an experience where you’ve landed on a certain website through your search phrases in Google, only to find a poorly designed website with a catastrophic navigational method but plenty of daunting quality content?

Alternatively, have you come across a website with a flashy eye catching design but the information is quite simply put - rubbish?
