My name is Michael Deeb and I'm a web developer in San Francisco, CA.

Over the years, this website has provided me with a personal project/playground to try out various web technologies (currently React).

Content published to this website is mostly to document things that I think will help my future self, but I'm hoping that some of what I write can also benefit others. It is also my attempt to own my own content and at least publish redundantly, if not solely here.

My earliest web design memory was designing a single page for a video game using Internet Explorer (I know). After I had completed my creation, I attempted to show it to my best friend on his Mac and that's how I discovered cross-browser compatibility.

WordPress is an amazing tool, but my needs were much too simplistic. Soon I started thinking that the full-featured tool was actually getting in the way of me putting out content...

  • Post Read Times and Jekyll

    Thursday | May 22 2014 | 09:41 AM

    It’s safe to say that the folks at Medium have done a superb job designing their platform and many people across the Internet are looking to borrow bits and pieces of their look. Aside from the Parallax-esque effect on their hero image, the other small detail that caught my attention was their reading length estimates on every article. In the...
