Friday Frontend: Jan 12 Edition

Hope you had a great week this week! This was my first week back from the end of year holiday break, and I can definitely feel the positive impact of the time off. It’s good to take some time for yourself every now and then, you come back so much more focused and productive.

Friday Frontend: Post Hanukkah Pre Christmas Edition

Hope you’re enjoying your holiday season! As a multicultural household, we’ve just wrapped up celebrating Hanukkah and are winding up for Christmas.

Friday Frontend: Beautiful CSS edition

Happy December! Month of elves, family, presents, nonstop department store music, and seasonal depression. Hopefully more of the first three and less of the last two, but in my experience you tend to get them all.

Friday Frontend: Web as Platform edition

I had a blast this week hosting the ‘Web as Platform’ track at QConSF, and talking with tons of folks about the future of software and the web. We’re at an incredible time in our industry’s history, where the browser is really transitioning from being an incredible documentation delivery engine to being an application delivery engine - the next generation operating system.

Friday Frontend: Finally it’s getting cold edition

Welcome to (almost) winter! I don’t know about where you are, but over here in the Bay Area we just started getting colder weather and rain. This last week and change I’ve started breaking out winter clothes, reviving winter foods, and all sorts of other fun stuff. Good to know that even with climate change, we still get some seasonality!

Friday Frontend: Welcome to November!

Happy November! I have a soft spot for November, maybe because because my birthday this month! But it’s also when we start to get cold enough to really enjoy all of our winter activities and foods, but we’re not yet into holiday madness. Definitely a great month.

Friday Frontend: Trick or Treat Edition

Happy (almost) Halloween! The meaning of this holiday has changed a lot for me since having kids, but whether Halloween for you means partying with adult beverages and risque outfits or chaperoning small children from house to house and attempting to limit their sugar intake, it’s a lot of fun regardless.

Friday Frontend: CSS Grid is in Edge!!! Edition

The big news this week is that Microsoft shifted Edge 16, with first class, un-prefixed support for CSS Grid! Yay! We are getting SO close to green across the board in caniuse, with 84% of browsers in the US supporting grid if you include prefixes… while there are definitely still issues and bugs, we’re getting strikingly close to the point where we can make a solid argument for using CSS Grid in production!

Friday Frontend: Friday the 13th Edition

According to Wikipedia, some 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by fear of Friday the 13th, with some people so paralyzed by fear that they won’t even get out of bed. That seems crazy to me, but then again I do some things that other people think are pretty crazy (like disliking tomatoes and bananas), so who am I to judge?

Friday Frontend: “Notch” one more developer scramble off for Apple 😉

It’s been a little over a week since the iPhone X was announced, so there’s been time for a ton of commentary and reactions. “The Notch” definitely got its share of haters, but boy they’ve packed some interesting things in there. Everyone is scrambling to figure out the implications, but no doubt about it this will influence mobile web design & development in the coming years.

Great articles seem to run in bunches - there will be a ton of new CSS Grid posts, or React posts, and they all kind of cluster together. This week we’ve got a cluster of posts about different developer tools built into Chrome and Firefox! One down to earth practical debugging tutorial in the JavaScript section and two super cool exploratory pieces under ‘Other Awesome’.

This week’s Friday Frontend got me super excited.

Friday Frontend Five Becomes Friday Frontend Fifteen!

We’re just in week 2, and the format of this newsletter is evolving each week. As I’ve dug more into all of the articles being published about the front end every week, I found it impossible to limit myself to just five good ones, so I’m updating to a Friday Fifteen! Given the many different angles to the frontend, what I’m looking at is each week having five about CSS & SCSS, five on JavaScript, and five as a mishmash of other topics and news. Let me know what you think!
