  1. Christian Heilmann — TE; DL Too Easy, Didn’t Learn

    Keynote at jQuery Europe 2014.

    In the keynote, I tried to analyse the massive discrepancy between what we as web developers get and how happy we seem to be.

    We are an elite group in the job market: we are paid well, our work environment is high-tech and our perks make other people jealous. We even get the proverbial free lunches.

    And yet our image is that of unsatisfied, hard to work with people who need to be kept happy and are socially awkward. I was confused that a group with all the necessary creature comforts is not an example of how easy working together could be. Instead, we even seem to need codes of conduct for our events to remind people not to behave badly towards people of the other sex or cultural background. Are we spoiled? Are we just broken? Or is there more?

    I’ve found a few reasons why we can come across as unsatisfied and hard to handle and the biggest to me was that whilst we are getting pampered, we lack real recognition for what we do.

    When you get a lot, but you yourself feel you are not really doing much, you are stuck between feeling superior to others who struggle with things you consider easy and feeling like a fraud. Instead of trying to communicate out about what we do, how much work it involves and why we do things in a certain way we seem to flee into a world of blaming our tools and trying to impress one another.

  2. 110: With Julie Ann Horvath - ShopTalk

    This week we were joined by Julie Ann Horvath, designer and developer for &yet. Julie has recently been the subject of tech news headlines because of her public resignation from her previous employer (Github) due to sexism and harassment. It’s a heavy and traumatic topic, but we’re thankful to Julie for sharing her experience so we can grow as a community and prevent these types of unfortunate events in the future.

    We talked about (roughly in order):

    5:15 Story behind Julie’s GitHub exit (Full Story: TechCrunch)

    News’n’Links’n’Drama:

    28:37 Brendan Eich resigns as Mozilla Corporation CEO

    Note: Within minutes of wrapping this episode, Brendan Eich stepped down as CEO.

    Q & A:

    38:09 Do you have any advice on where to look for jobs where an experienced front-end developer could learn from their co-workers and be challenged?

    46:52 Since there are a lot of web development languages to learn and many developers know the usual HTML, CSS and Javascript. Which language would you say is a niche market to learn for hire?

    50:48 I feel like I may have too much on my plate for the year: should I ask my team for more help?

    46:50 I work as a front-end developer at Hiplogiq. We are looking to fill a couple of front-end dev internships.

  8. Brad Frost – Creating Responsive Interfaces » UIE Brain Sparks

    Frameworks and design patterns are no strangers in the world of web design. As responsive web design becomes common practice, making sure these templates work across every imaginable screen and device is trickier. There have been attempts to break down page elements in separate modules, but you often never see it fully assembled.

    Brad Frost shares this frustration and introduces Atomic Design as a solution. Borrowing from the metaphor of atoms making up molecules, molecules making up organism and so forth, Brad thinks responsive design needs to be approached deeper than at the page level. Having these individual modules is great, but how do they all fit together?

    Designing in this way allows you to be more deliberate and systematic in your approach. Dividing an interface up creates the ability to stitch webpages together but in a way that builds from an atomic level and you can clearly see how you’ve arrived at the end product. This approach to responsive design, as Brad says, serves to solve problems in a very acute way.
