I like the idea of grids-on-demand, rather than a strict framework.
My experiments have left me impressed. The current state of CSS layout means that unless you like to spend a lot of time doing calculations something like Susy is really useful. The output CSS is pretty much what I’d come up with myself, which to me is the acid test for tool use.
If you’re interested in reading Sass poetry, be sure to look at Susy’s source code!
Susy & Zendesk have been getting along magically. It’s precisely what you need, and nothing more.
I consider Mozilla’s MozTrap to be one of the best open source test case management systems out there.
OddBird really changed my thinking about how successful remote development can be. We were able to hire them as a complete team, ready to start adding value immediately, working as closely as an internal team.
Since OddBird thinks about handoff from the beginning, maintenance has been super easy. For example, 100% unit test coverage was a given. I never had to ask for it.
Deep expertise and knowledge, combined with incredible communication and an easy-going style.
Herman is my documentation dream come true, especially when it comes to systems design.
Thought provoking talk on rethinking who the user is and who we are writing for as developers. Wow! Made me think.
This is hands down the best book on Sass if you want to learn the most important parts of the Sass language that will help you architect a good application.
Miriam and Kitty have become some of the most notable creators of Sass plugins and best practices.
A mobile-friendly design that will let users see the live tracking and performance data, even on the go, making it easy to connect up with others while out on a ride.
QuarqNet captures the data and seamlessly synchronizes activities with analysis sites like Strava, TrainingPeaks, and Today’s Plan. Athletes get unaltered, high-definition data and training log perfection.
Just like the Quarq power meters changed the playing field for power measurement, this new technology is going to change the way people watch races.

The first meeting I had with Miriam helped me decide. She was excited about the project but also realistic about potential issues with the codebase.
The OddBird team did a great job developing the brand for my algebra website and revamping the site to reflect both new aesthetics and better practices for making it look wonderful on a variety of devices.
I appreciated how professional the team was – keeping me informed about the process and offering me excellent choices about what direction to go at key points.
Amazing talk by Miriam Suzanne at the Beyond Tellerand conference about the benefits of using plain CSS instead of heavy library for your grid! Very useful and inspiring. Thanks!
Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.
I liked the way OddBird presented themselves. They were curious and asked detailed questions to really understand what was needed.
Every time I hear @mirisuzanne talk I learn a ton and laugh a ton. She’s an amazing speaker… Watch this talk when it’s published!
OddBird is high-caliber and nimble. Innovative at heart. Together, we fundamentally transformed the Chicago public school system.
I really enjoy this iterative design process. Seeing how OddBird does the iteration has improved my own iterative system with schools.
OddBird was the wise investment. We could have selected a cheaper avenue for this work – we would have paid for it manifold in the long run.
The internet was useless in deciding who to hire, with too much conflicting info. Then I found OddBird, providing a focused team with a wide range of talent.
OddBird allowed me to transform my vision into an MVP that has momentum. I’m confident I’ll be able to land big venture capital and increase my revenue from courses, because the tool has sped up the process.
I love working with Miriam as a project manager, She’s excellent at reigning me in.
When we were close to testing with actual users, I started to panic. But Miriam asked “what do you need?” and then we built that, and it worked.
OddBird already had so many processes in place as a team and knew how to work together; that allowed us get to where we are now.
Some pretty mind-bendingly cool uses for CSS custom props from @MiriSuzanne – color, layout & animation all in css and only using JS to feed data.
Best CSS talk I’ve ever seen was from @MiriSuzanne today at #dvlpdnvr. Simply amazing.
Well that was awesome!!! “If you think CSS is a dumb language, you’re a dumb language – CSS IS AWESOME!” @MiriSuzanne thank you so much for the amazing talk!
Miriam has always been nothing but spot-on, professional, funny, while also being extremely knowledgeable, smart, polite and always on time.
OddBird was quick to learn and pick up new technologies. They delivered high quality code, and delivered on time.
When the inventor of the modern design system names you as the number one person she’d hire to build a design system, well then I jump! I’m grateful she put us in contact.
It was easy to talk about technology options. OddBird was both flexible (working within the constraints of our existing systems) and opinionated (bringing context from past experience).
I appreciated the specific experience OddBird brought to bear in terms of building component libraries, particularly the need to incrementally import the component library in order to have it successfully be used.
A fantastic speaker, with wonderful teaching skills, and highly praised by attendees of the conference and the workshop alike.
Some of our developers are junior, and we appreciated the opportunity to work with senior developers at OddBird. We all learned from that experience.
We feel grateful for having found our relationship with OddBird and excited to continue with future projects.
Working with OddBird was the best outsourcing experience I’ve ever had. It didn’t feel like outsourcing at all.
OddBird became an extension of our team bringing UX, frontend, and backend brilliance to take MetaDeploy from an idea into a production application.
OddBird is very pleasant to work with and responsive. I’m not an expert in web development, so I really appreciated that.
Are you following @MiriSuzanne yet? She’s amazing. I’m so lucky to get to work with her on this video series & more.
@MiriSuzanne does not only explain “why CSS is how it is” but also neatly summarizes the basic principles of what make the Web the Web. If you know those principles, many implementation details will be less baffling to you.
The Workflow Builder project met and exceeded expectations. The project was finished in budget and on time, and we were super excited to get the outcome we did.
We appreciate that there’s not one package deal at OddBird. Depending on the project, different configurations of the OddBird team were able to integrate with our internal developers. That worked really well.
I think it’s a brilliant idea. Almost want to stop talking about whether or not to do it, and just start talking syntax.
We take submissions from our team, and Miriam was a highly desired expert we wanted to learn from! I really appreciated the different topics you presented as options to best talk to our internal audience.
This was such a fun project to work on with @TypeTasting, @OddBird & my @AdobeFonts colleagues.
Oddbird developers know what they’re doing. We appreciate you all driving us to our goals. I’m glad usability testing was baked into the process. It really was so valuable. We are super super happy.
