A collection of published thoughts
Besides design, I hold a monthly column on web development using web standards in Users, a successful magazine that sells in South America, Mexico and the US.
The articles mainly deal with techniques and technologies for solving day to day web development problems, using a relaxed, yet fundamented rhetoric.
Here’s a selection of articles freely available to download, and hopefully, enjoy. Note that these were written in Spanish; however a brief summary, in English, can be read below each article title.
