A friend came to me wondering about how to pull off a nested Matrix situation in Craft CMS. What he wanted was to be able to use a Matrix field within another Matrix field, which is not possible at the moment. However, while talking about it with him, I came up with something that will work at least for his use-case.
My name is Dan Ott
I am a freelance web developer. I've worked professionally in the web development field since 1999, and full-time since 2007. I count myself as one of those lucky few people who actually enjoy what they do.

If you're tired of Flat Design and looking for something to spice it up, why not try Long Shadows? And if you're going to try Long Shadows, why not use a pure CSS solution with this Sass mixin?
A couple of weeks ago, a good friend sent me an email with a list of questions for me. He'd been out of the front-end game for a little while, and wanted to pick my brain a little bit. I thought that instead of just answering him directly, I'd share my answers with everyone.
