How New Font Technologies Will Improve The Web

Words are the primary component of content for the web. However, until a short while ago, all we had at our disposal were but a few system fonts. Adding to that, those system typefaces weren’t necessarily coherent from operating system to operating system (OS). Fortunately, Windows, macOS and Linux made up font-wise, and since then, […]

Conquering Impostor Syndrome

Two years ago I documented my struggles with Imposter Syndrome and the response was immense.  I received messages of support and commiseration from new web developers, veteran engineers, and even persons of all experience levels in other professions.  I’ve even caught myself reading the post many times with the hopes that I would just snap […]

We're Touring Through Southeast Asia: Join The Mozilla Developer Roadshow!

We love exploring opportunities. While many of us are quite familiar with publications and events surrounding us, we often lack the global perspective on what’s happening in the web industry across the world.

Why I Switched To Sketch For UI Design (And Never Looked Back)

User interface design has changed dramatically in the last few years, as traditional computers have ceded dominance to smaller screens, including tablets, mobile phones, smartwatches and more.

UX At Scale 2017: Free Webinars To Get Scaling Design Right

Design doesn’t scale as cleanly as engineering. It’s not enough that each element and page is consistent with each other — the much bigger challenge lies in keeping the sum of the parts intact, too. And accomplishing that with a lot of designers involved in the same project. If you’re working in a growing startup […]

Node.js Debugging

Proper logging is of massive utility for web apps, both during development and after deployment.  What can sometimes be difficult is organizing both the code and output of logging, i.e. knowing where each log message is coming from.  I recently found debug, a Node.js utility for organized and optimized debugging. Creating an instance of debug […]

Observing Intersection Observers

One of the funnest parts of JavaScript, or any programming language really, is that there are loads of tiny tricks and quirks that make the language that much more interesting.  I recently learned a nice fact about Object.create:  using null as the only argument to create an ultra-vanilla dictionary! Object.create has been an awesome utility for prototype […]
