CSSans Pro by @zerospree
CSSans Pro is a new project by Codrin Pavel and I really, really dig it. It is a font, entirely design and created in CSS. What’s even more impressive is the documentation and the selectors that Codrin and Izabela came with that allows you to utilize CSSans Pro.

Behind the scenes of Thrive Goals a project by @JustinTranJT
I really enjoyed this behind the scenes look at what it took Justin to build a task management system specifically targeted to Princeton University students.

Loaders - @aaroniker

Sortable List - @bsehovac
As a developer, one of the challenging UX experiences to implement for me is sortable lists that you can drag and drop. In this Pen I thought Boris did an excellent job of implementing a smooth animation and using spacing to show intent.
