Found this quick intro to why sass. (For our purposes SASS == SCSS, which I talked about in my previous entry)

I've heard some people lately saying they'd like to learn Perl recently, and [personal profile] rb mentioned in IRC that this work-in-progress book is temporarily available for free online:

Beginning Perl (Wrox)

There might be a few errors still to be fixed, but overall it could be a good resource.

This morning at YAPC I attended an Intro to Git session presented by Randal Schwartz. It was an awesome session! I learned a lot about git and how it works (and how you shouldn't try to make it work). I was typing up notes to post for y'all, and then he mentioned at the end that he has both the slides and a video of the presentation (a version he gave in January) available online.

So, if you have a spare two hours and would like to learn about git, here you go:

Introduction to Git - video
Introduction to Git - slides

There's also a book that many people have highly recommended, called Pro Git by Scott Chacon. It's available free of charge in many formats, licensed as CC-BY-SA-NC.

I definitely felt much more comfortable with the idea of what git is, how it works, and why it does what it does when I finished the session, so if you're feeling anxious about the migration to github (which is a service layered on top of git, the underlying software), definitely check it out.

Figured this might be relevant here since DW is built on Perl--check out the selection, if that sounds like the sort of thing you'd like. O'Reilly's ebooks are really quite nice--multiple formats, no DRM, and you can always redownload them from your account.

So, we know that Dreamwidth has a lot of usability work to accomplish. That's why some people might be interested in reading over the Wikipedia Usability Initiative--it has some explained design mock ups and describes usability studies.

[personal profile] afuna either linked to or linked to something that linked to Producing Open Source Software, a book by Karl Fogel that's available online under Creative Commons, and I'm two sections into it and already seeing all the things we can learn from it.
