Friday Frontend

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.

Friday Frontend: Developer Tools edition!

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’

Happy Friday!

Friday Frontend: Faceoff Edition. Dueling grids, JS Frameworks, and more!

Hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend and have had a great week! This week’s Friday Frontend is heavy on faceoffs - a breakdown of two top framework grid systems, battling opinions on the ‘CSS in JS’ controversy, and a three-way battle post of Angular vs React vs Vue.

I’m also experimenting with the format, with a bit less commentary per link - do you like this better? Or is the older version with more context better? Jump into the comments and let me know!

Happy Friday!

Friday Frontend | SCSS Architecture, Functional JavaScript, and Quantum CSS, oh my!

This week’s Friday Frontend got me super excited. Not only are there some great beginner articles in it with tutorials and guided exercises, but some amazing deep dives into topics near and dear to my heart like SCSS architecture and functional JavaScript. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! And if there are any of these that don’t make sense to you, or that you want to learn more about, shoot me a quick note and I’ll be sure to answer your questions, find more resources, or write up some posts myself if the resources don’t exist.

Happy Friday!

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!

Happy Friday!
