Summer is right around the corner and for those of you who develop in higher education or a similar seasonal industry here are 3 developers you should follow to help make the most of your summer:
1.) Brian Gardner
Brian is the founder of StudioPress, the makers of the Genesis Framework (affiliate link) which powers this site and so many others. If you work with WordPress his blog has some excellent ideas to help with design and development as well as some excellent tips.
2.) Nick Denardis
Nick is the Associate Director of Web Communications at Wayne State University as well as the owner of EDU Checkup, a video review of higher education websites which can give insights into usability and code applicable to all sites, not just high-ed sites, by pointing out what some very large sites do right as well as what they do wrong.
3.) Ozh Richard
Ozh is one of the authors of Professional WordPress Plugin Development (affiliate link) as well as the author of Yourls which is a self-hosted alternative to popular link-shortener services like bit.ly (as well as quite a few other projects).
