JobFinder.ma – The Big WHY.

It started a month ago …

On July 24th, I was having coffee with a friend.

We talked a bit about employment opportunities in Morocco, challenges, perspectives … but mostly, problems.

One problem that came up was the huge fragmentation in the job market. More accurately, the fragmentation in the job offers/listings/postings. Then he said :

I wish I had a system that notifies me whenever a job opening that concerns me is posted, anywhere.

jQuery Mobile 1.3.0 SASS / Compass [GitHub]

In the process of releasing an MVP for Zaigood, and applying some Six Sigma principles on my software engineering process (I will write about this later), I released a SASS / Compass version of the jQuery Mobile project.

You can find it on GitHub. Contributions/bug reports are highly welcome, as always.

Bootstrap 3 : An early overview (and download link).

A release candidate of Bootstrap 3 was previewed earlier today. The last major release dates back to Jan 28th 2012 … more than a year ago.

Personally, one thing struck me : the flat design. But in a very positive way, mainly because of two things :

  1. I love super-minimalistic UIs.
  2. I can’t stand prototyping my apps with a Twitteresque design (I have a Bootstrap flat fork for that).

The bad news (at least for me) is the flat design is only temporary.

The other bad news, except the default responsiveness (responsive styles are now included in the main stylesheets – navbar example), I can’t see any major change in Bootstrap 3. At least for the time being !
