laela_activism_hiv_aids

At TrestleMedia our team is built of extraordinary people who do so much more than just web development. Currently our Community Manager, Laela Wilding, is in Africa  as part of her efforts in HIV and AIDS activism. Here she is visiting a Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) health clinic, supported by the The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in rural Mulanje, Malawi.

You can read more about Laela's trip here.

Let’s be honest, we often think of accessibility as extra work we have to do for a small minority of the population who probably won’t be using our site anyway. We do it because someone required us to, and it seems like an arbitrary list of requirements to check off.

The Smashing Conference in San Francisco was two full days of presentations on front-end and UX at Fort Mason Center on the Marina. It was a beautiful location with views of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz, and we got lucky with warm sunny weather both days. Don’t hate me.

Portland Neighborhood and Sky
Spring in Portland, Oregon certainly does not guarantee sunshine and warm temps, but it definitely maintains its seasonal symbolism of renewal and rejuvenation. It’s a great time of the year to clean out the clutter, re-center and get back to your roots. With this in mind, we are launching the TrestleMedia Community Grant Initiative.

At TrestleMedia we are usually not much for New Year's Resolutions. We hope that throughout the year we are striving to do our best work and pushing ourselves to evolve and innovate with changes within the Web design and development industry.

Site Architecture
The Field Collection module is a powerful and flexible way to handle data, but when the need arises to work with it in code you might end up with a headache. This post gives you a jump start into the heart of where you need to be to apply your own sorts and modifications on the display side.

Site Architecture

Most people have a pretty accurate concept of what we mean when we say “programming” or “graphic design”. But terms like “UX” and “IA” may seem a bit hard to put your finger on, even when we use the full terms “User experience” and “Information architecture”.
