CodeGeek - Crafting the Responsive Web

🎁 Happy Birthday, Responsive Web Design!

As many of you know, Responsive Web Design (RWD) is the key to creating a single website that adapts seamlessly to every device—laptop, cell phone, tablet, you name it.

And the Geeks have been using the RWD approach since its infancy. (You can check out our RWD demo here.)

Ethan Marcotte first coined the term "Responsive Web Design" at An Event Apart in Seattle, and our very own Ron Zasadzinski was there to hear about it firsthand.

However, Marcotte points to the publish date of his first article about this novel web design approach as its official birthday, which was May 25, 2010. And he’s celebrating by sharing a series of retrospective blog posts about the subject.

Happy 10th birthday, RWD! Our websites wouldn't be the same without ya. (Sorry, we forgot to get you a gift.)

☀️ The Geeks’ Summer Movie List, Part 1 🍿

Summer just ain’t summer without spinning up a feature film on a school night.

And since CBS has dusted off its Sunday Night Movies, we figured we might as well contribute to their already-stellar lineup.

So pop some popcorn and snag those Reese’s Pieces because you’ll want to be well-nourished for this two-month movie marathon. (Check back in July for Part 2!) 💙 Movie watching doesn’t just have to be about escapism. TV Guide has put together a list of shows and documentaries addressing racial justice, and it can be a step towards increased education, compassion and action.

🎁 WordPress Turned The Big 1-7!

On May 27, 2003, the original version of WordPress was released to the masses. Apparently, the texturizing was so good “it’ll make your quotes curl.”

🎁 CodeGeek Celebrates 18 Years!

Time sure does fly when you're having fun! And the Geeks have been having fun since June 2002.

If we were blowing out our birthday candles, we'd wish for another 18 fun years (plus one to grow on) of making the web a better place to be for everyone.

From our team to yours, thank you for making these last 18 years something really special. 🧡

🎆 Getting A Head Start On July 4th

On Friday, July 3, the Geeks’ home offices will be closed to get a head start on celebrating Independence Day.

If you have a website emergency that day, please contact us at and we’ll get back to you before you’re done waving that sparkler.

For all other things, we’ll respond as soon as possible after we've eaten that last hot dog.
