About the author:
Bass Jobsen has been programming for the Web since 1995, from C to PHP, always looking for the most accessible interfaces. He has a special interest in the process between a designer and programmer. He believes that interfaces should work independent of a device or browser. For these reasons, working with grids and meta languages in designs makes him happy.
