Here are five things in the Frontend Engineering world, that I found interesting…
Jank Free - Let’s Make the Web Silky Smooth! - From the site, which looks to be put together by a couple of folks from the Chromium team, “Jank is any stuttering, juddering or just plain halting that users see when a site or app isn’t keeping up with the refresh rate. Jank is the result of frames taking too long for a browser to make, and it negatively impacts your users and how they experience your site or app.” Really good collection of resources for keeping your sites jank free.
Front End Happy Hour Podcast - Started by Ryan Burgess, a UI Engineering Manager at Netflix. “A podcast featuring a panel of Software Engineers from Netflix, Evernote, Atlassian & LinkedIn talking over drinks about all things Front End development.” Very good discussions about a lot of diverse topics, both technical and soft skills around Frontend Engineering. One of my top five podcasts I listen to for Frontend Engineering.
Babel Handbook - Also from Mr. Kyle, is this great repo on GitHub that is for both plugin authors, and users of Babel. Great, clear information on Babel, and how to set it up.
