New in-house project: blog about mountain trekking and other mountain activities for children

read post

Prowebdesign has recently launched a new http://www.cucopiiipemunte.com about mountain trekking and other mountain activities for children. This is the case of “profession meets hobby”:).

The blog describes trekking trails in different mountain massifs in Romanian Carpathian mountains. Unlike many blogs about family trekking, we do not write about birds singing, pretty flowers, spectacular cliffs, etc. Instead we focus on supplying objective information that will help parents evaluate a trail and plan the hike: altitude gain, length, exposed parts, inclination, mountain huts on the way, water sources on the way, ease of access to the base, GPS tracks downloads, etc.

Atomic CSS is a way of writing style sheets with one property per declaration, if we put it simply. If you have coded at least one large, scalable, responsive UI you probably already know how useful this approach is:).

We have decided to share a small set of CSS helper classes that proved to be very useful in out work with large responsive UIs. Those classes are written for Twitter Bootstrap framework, style sheet uses the same break points. But helpers  – or atoms – can be used with any framework, in any project. You can add your own atoms, breakpoints, change naming convention, etc.

Math Game for 5-10 y.o. kids. In-house project.

read post

We are happy to announce that we’ve launched (finally :) ) a cool in-house project we’ve been working on for the past 2 month. It is a math game for children of 5 – 10 years (pre-school and elementary school). The project started more in-house than many projects do. It has actually started in the family, springing from the need for some fun, yet thorough way to train our in-house first grader in elementary math.
