Modern JavaScript Explained For Dinosaurs

The goal of this article to to provide a historical context of how JavaScript tools have evolved to what they are today in 2017. We’ll start from the beginning and build an example website like the dinosaurs did — no tools, just plain HTML and JavaScript. Then we’ll introduce different tools incrementally to see the problems that they solve one at a time. With this historical context, you’ll be better able to learn and adapt to the ever-changing JavaScript landscape going forward. Let’s get started!medium.com

CSS Grid Support - Edge now has it, too

Yes! I cannot think of another new spec that has landed in all major browsers in under one year. Over at A List Apart is a very interesting article on the history of the CSS Grid and by whom and how it was made possible.

On October 17th, Microsoft’s Edge browser shipped its implementation of CSS Grid. This is a milestone for a number of reasons. First, it means that all major browsers now support this incredible layout tool. Second, it means that all major browsers rolled out their implementations in a single year(!), a terrific example of


Beobachtungen zum Altwerden und der Großstadt - Anke Gröner

In den letzten Tagen ist mir erstmals aufgefallen, wie kompliziert die Stadt sein kann, wenn man älter ist und vielleicht einfach nicht mehr so schnell oder aufmerksam. Oder auch, weil man es schlicht nicht gewohnt ist, sich in einer Großstadt zu bewegen.ankegroener.de

Ich beobachte ja schon länger eine, wie ich finde, stärker zunehmende Rücksichtslosigkeit der Stadtnutzer. Irgendwie geht "den Leuten" (also immer die anderen) der Wille oder das Vermögen, sich Gedanken über die Auswirkungen des eigenen Handelns auf andere zu machen, verloren. Empathie ist leider kein Studienfach, und in meiner ureigenen kleinen ich-erklär-mir-die-welt-Welt sorgt das seit mehreren Jahrzehnten ...

Want readers to start trusting you again? Stop stalking them across the internet - poynter.org

(…) trust must also involve thinking thoughtfully about the platforms and tools we use to track readers, measure behavior and determine how to monetize. It must involve thinking about the data we collect — or let others collect — and then what could be done with that data. In other words, trust is something that needs to be strengthened not just on the editorial side of a newsroom, but in the advertising and technical departments as well.poynter.org

Where Does The Design Agency Go From Here? - Paul Woods/Edo van Dijk

(…) Design is no longer just about design.
Design doesn’t mean making visual solutions. Digital doesn’t mean being a web monkey, producing only websites and apps. Such developments as the rise of artificial intelligence, screenless design and accessibility to great website-building tools like Squarespace mean that the agency that interprets digital design as “making websites and apps” is going to be out of business—and soon. To provide relevant design solutions, the modern agency needs to have business consultancy, copywriting, technology and analytics capabilities under one roof, and most important, these capabilities have to work together—not in silos.commarts.com

The web as a material

The concepts of apprenticeship and mastership seem to not apply on the Web. When it comes to building a house, you will search for a trusted architect and carpenter, and you'll measure their credibility by means of their experience, which in turn will be a matter of the time they spent exercising their craft. On the Web, even the 16-year-old nephew of your neighbour seems to be able of doing the job. Developers tend to call themselves "engineers" without being aware of the public responsibility that this title used to come along with.

Intolerable - Jeremy Keith

Spot-on about that ex-googler's "manifesto" and its layers of reasonability around an intolerable core.

(…) It may seem odd that a document that appears to be so reasonable is proving to be so very divisive. But it’s that very appearance of impartiality that gives it its power. It is like an optical illusion for the mind. Some people—like me—read it and think, “this is clearly wrong and harmful.” Other people—who would never self-identify as sexist in any way—read it and think, “seems legit.” I’m almost—almost—glad that it was written. It’s bringing a lot of buried biases into the light.(…)


Why You Should Fly Under The Radar When Booking A Trip - Mozilla Blog

To start, if you use the web to find cheap flights, you might notice an uptick in web ads for the routes you just searched for. These results aren’t just influenced by what you look up and buy online, but include related sites—even online publications where you get your news and celebrity gossip.
Some e-commerce sites have even been caught displaying different prices to different customers based on a variety of potential factors, including one’s browsing history. Believe it or not, the rabbit hole goes deeper—the device that you’re using to search the web can influence results that come


Resolving CSS Gridlock - Matthias Ott

Very good thoughts on the state of our ever evolving playfield and how to yield the power that CSS-grid can bring –– in times when there still are old processes, browsers and mindsets around.

[…] Just because people can use CSS Grid theoretically doesn’t mean they will actually use it in practice, especially if this involves writing layout code twice and with an already established method out there […] It's another manifestation of the huge shift we see in contemporary web design: the decision making largely happens in development, at the end of the good old waterfall and
