Use of a CSS reset stylesheet is recommended more than something like this one off. Normalize the CSS across browsers. In general, it is better to add borders as the exception than it is to remove them from elements. There are many good CSS reset stylesheets and some like from the YUI Library...

Keith Barrow
Software Developer (Senior)
United Kingdom United Kingdom
I Graduated in Natural Sciences (Chemistry & Physics) from Durham University, where I did not cover myself with glory, but did fill, and often cover, myself with beer.

I qualified as a secondary school teacher, but I hated teaching. I worked as an IT techhie for a few years but kept being promoted to IT Trainer, thanks to my teaching experience, which I also disliked. I spent some time working out what else I could do instead and reduced beer intake.

I realised that I should work as a programmer, having enjoyed it a hobby since I was a nipper in the halcyon days of the Sinclair Spectrum (48k, Rubber Keyboard). Spent two weeks working out why I didn't think of this to start with, instead of starting my dull-as-ditch-water Chemistry degree 8 years earlier. Had a beer to celebrate.

I Graduated in 2001 with an MSc from Newcastle Uni in Comp Sci. Did cover myself with glory, and drank some beer.

.Netting ever since, and loving it. Though I have largely given up beer due to not being able to hack the pace like I used to.

I was born, brought up, and have lived most of my life near Newcastle. In a fit of temporary insanity I moved to Amman, in my wife's homeland of Jordan, but made it back safely to the UK without any extra holes being made in my person by bullets. To be fair it was pretty safe at the time, if you ignored the roads.

Visit Jordan if you can by the way, the landscape is beautiful and varied, the food excellent and the people the friendliest on earth, after Geordies naturally Smile | :) .
Leland Richardson
Founder
United States United States
My name is Leland Richardson. I love learning. At the time of writing this I am 23 years old and live in Houston, TX. I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, and went to school in Houston, Texas at Rice University.

At Rice I received two degrees: one in Physics and one in Mathematics. I love both. I never received any formal education on Computer Science, however, you will find that most of this blog will be about programming and web development. Nevertheless, I think being a good programmer is about being good at learning, and thinking logically about how to solve problems - of which I think my educational background has more than covered.

Since high-school, I had found that the easiest way to make money was by programming. Programming started off as a hobby and small interest, and slowly grew into a passion.

I have recently started working on a new startup here in Houston, TX. I wont bore you with the details of that just yet, but I am very excited about it and I think we can do big things. We plan to launch our project this year at SXSW 2013. What I will say for now, is that we would like to create a company of talented software developers who are similarly ambitious and want to create cool stuff (and have fun doing it).
Matt Sollars
Web Developer
United States United States
I began programming on my Commodore 64 at around the age of 12. After migrating to DOS and then Windows, I decided to take on the Web. Several languages and platforms later, I have settled in with .NET nicely. I am currently the owner of a software consulting company and lead application developer for a learning-based technology consultation company.

The love of a finished application is usually at war with the desire to improve it as soon as it's released (they're never really finished).

Rui Jarimba
Software Developer (Senior)
Italy Italy
My name is Rui Jarimba and I was born in Madeira island, Portugal and I currently live in Rome, Italy.

I have more than 10 years of experience developing software using the .NET Framework and other technologies (Web development, Databases, ...).

Some of my professional interests are: software development best practices, software architecture, cloud computing, Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD) and agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean and any other methodology that can help me to become a better and more productive software engineer.

I believe in good code - code that is readable, maintainable, reusable, testable and deployable. This means that I'm not the "quick and dirty" type, I write code for the medium/long term whenever possible.

Something else about me - I love music, I am an amateur photographer, not a big fan of gyms (I prefer to do some outdoor activity such as walking/hiking), big foodie (I love Mediterranean cuisine and my glass of wine!).
