  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. ShopTalk #101: With John Resig

    This week we were joined by John Resig. John is the Dean of Computer Science at Khan Academy and the creator of the jQuery JavaScript library. He’s also the author of the books Pro JavaScript Techniques and Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja.

    We talked about (roughly in order):

    Q & A:

    42:08 Is it worth it for me to start investing my time into learning all these new frameworks (such as backbone, angular, ember)?

    46:50 I work as a front-end developer at Hiplogiq. We are looking to fill a couple of front-end dev internships. We would like to offer more opportunities to women in our field, but I have found that is extremely hard to find candidates. Do you guys have any ideas where else can I find students that may want to be part of our internship program? (check out: Women Who Code)

    58:00 Should I learn Javascript or JQuery?

    61:45 Minigames with canvas?

  3. Live from Front-End Conf - ShopTalk

    This episode of Shop Talk was filmed before a live studio audience. Thanks to Dan & Cherrie Denney for inviting us down to Front-End Design Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. Chris played the banjo a bit and Dave wore a Floridian shirt. It is a spectacular conference and a lot of fun was had.

    We discuss Scott’s latest thinking about “responsible responsive design,” whether responsive design is destroying creativity on the web, working with CSS flexbox, what’s new with the jQuery Mobile project, why people fear JavaScript and love jQuery, the size and management of Filament Group’s multi-device test suite, the secret history of the jQuery logo, and much more.

  6. Technometria: jQuery and jQuery Mobile

    jQuery is a JavaScript library meant to aid the software developer in rapid web development. It has the benefit of being cross-platform, helping the programmer in making sure that applications work in any browser. John Resig, it’s creator and lead developer, joins Phil and Scott to discuss its purpose and development.

    He also reviews the upcoming jQuery Mobile, a similar tool that will help in cross-platform development among mobile devices. With the initial alpha version expected later this year, John describes the similarities with jQuery and how he hopes that mobile developers will be more successful in writing better applications for more devices.

He’s also the creator and lead developer of the jQuery JavaScript library. Currently, John is located in Boston, MA. He’s hard at work on his second book, Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja.
