Educational Resources

A huge focus for Whitefusion in 2021 is providing actionable and down-to-earth educational materials for developers. We’re creating the content we wish to see in the world. No matter what your skill level is or what you hope to achieve in your career, our goal is to help you get a leg up with “force multiplier” techniques and approaches to modern web development.

RUBY3.dev

RUBY3.dev is a blog run by Whitefusion founder Jared White. It’s a celebration of the expressiveness, flexibility, and…yes…weirdness of Ruby—with a particular focus on what makes Ruby vibrant and relevant in our present decade.

The Spicy Web

February 2021 Update! We’ve now opened up a newbie-friendly Discord chat server. Join the fight against complexity overload and learn how to do far more with way less!

The Spicy Web will be an ongoing series of video tutorials and adjacent materials aimed at showcasing the fundamentals of today’s evergreen browser technology. Learn about custom elements and high-fidelity web components, design systems using CSS variables, flexbox and grid, native ESM imports, Hotwire-style techniques, and so much more. The Spicy Web will be a mix of free and paid subscription-based content, with ever increasing value over time. Stay tuned for the early access launch later this spring.

DEV.to

We’re increasingly putting an emphasis on sharing content through the wildly-popular developer resource DEV.to. To wit:

  1. Custom Elements Everywhere for Page Layout, Parts I and II
