Welcome to Collective #800 🎉

Today, we are celebrating a monumental milestone: 800 editions of the Collective! That’s 800 compilations of the finest frontend news and inspiration since 2012!

Back when our inaugural edition hit the digital shelves, the CSS3 Multi Column Module was the talk of the town, and developers couldn’t have been happier to have more layout options! In fact, one of our early features was CSS3: The Multi Column Layout and How it Will Change Web Design.

Another unforgettable blast from the past is the article Making Love to WebKit by Steven Wittens, who, at that time, pushed the limits with his groundbreaking website utilizing CSS 3D transforms, WebGL, and Three.js!

We are immensely grateful to have reached this significant milestone, and, of course, none of it would have been possible without our incredible readership!

A big thank you from the 💙 for sharing this incredible journey with us!

To the next 800! 🚀

Once you click on the link, you’ll see that it’s actually the first image of the respective gallery the link leads to. After inspection, we can see that an image placeholder gets inserted dynamically in a background element on the page. The background element has a backdrop-filter:

Very nice technique to preview what’s coming in an elegant way!

Did you know that…

…the first webcam was created at the University of Cambridge to monitor the status of a coffee pot? In 1991, a group of computer scientists set up a camera in the Trojan Room, pointed at the coffee pot in the break room. They created a system that allowed them to check the coffee pot’s status and avoid unnecessary trips to an empty pot.

And that’s all! Thank you for reading the Collective! If you have something you would like us to feature in the next edition, simply reply to this email!
