So I just wanted to draw attention to a site that I have been using for about ten years. The site that every web designer should know, and my guess every true designer already knows about and that is codrops. This site is about the best that I’ve found for css and jQuery effects that will make every site just a little bit better.
I first found the site through a regular search for hover effects back around 10 years ago. Since then it’s been the my one go-to site when I want to add something interactive to my sites. In fact I used to send my students there for them to get ideas for their sites.
To be completely honest I don’t know very much about the site, besides what I’ve already mentioned, but they are exceptional. This is from their about page,
“Codrops is a web design and development blog that publishes articles and tutorials about the latest web trends, techniques and new possibilities. The team of Codrops is dedicated to provide useful, inspiring and innovative content that is free of charge.
What started as an experimental blog became an exciting playground for sharing the passion for web design and web development.
The web is innovating each and every day, pushing the boundaries of how websites are built from the fundamental structure to the most delicate interaction effects. And on Codrops we want to share some of that.
We are always looking for creative minds to join us, write for us, explore, collect, engage… So, if you would like to become part of Codrops, please contact us! “

Again, there are some things that I want to stress here. The first is that the site is special that it has great content and I think every designer should be going there. The second is, is that I am very grateful that there are still sites like codrops on the web. In my opinion it exemplifies what the web is about. The last thing is that I want to bring attention to them, they deserve it.
There are several aspects to this site that I’m trying to integrate into my idea of what Kennethcurtis.com is about, and I’m hoping that given some time to normalize this site that I’ll be able to have guest interviews. The people at codrops are on the top of the list on people that I’d love to interview. I know I’m talking about a site and saying that I’d like to interview them… the truth is I am really curious about one of the contributors named, Mary Lou. I’m not actually sure if that is a real person or not, but I’d like to invite her for an interview.
