New personal website

After a friend (thanks, Smash) presenting me Bootstrap, I decided to give it a look, as it might be interesting to bootstrap new projects design quickly. Given my lack of design qualities, having somebody doing it for my is great. To test Bootstrap I chose to do a redesign of my personal website, that was looking too much like last century, and making it more modern and, given I am using the default Bootstrap look, very similar to any other project using Bootstrap.

I still need to perform some arrangements (namely on the publications list, where I want to generate the citations automatically,  in the teaching page where I’ll link some teaching material I’ve been preparing and, probably, in the presentations page, where I need to recompute all thumbnails, as the ones made available by SlideShare suck).

CSS Cheat Sheet

I teach XML, DTD and the like, and I teach (or show and make students use) CSS for XML. It doesn’t work properly on all browsers, it doesn’t work consistently on all browsers, it doesn’t do everything web publishing needs. But it is a good approach to add some style and usefulness to XML without teaching XSLT.

Normally I give my students a CSS Cheat Sheet. Usually it is the CSS Cheat Sheet v2 from Added Bytes. This time I googled some more time searching for a better one. Basically, Added Bytes cheat sheet present keywords for CSS properties, but doesn’t describe valid values.

In this quest, I found what I think it the best (ok, one of the best) CSS Cheat Sheet available in the Internet. It is from “A Coding Fool” webpage. It is two pages but I do not see that as a problem, given now most printers do duplex and, if it doesn’t, you can always do that manually. Is just one sheet of paper…
