Five Frontend Things Friday 24

  1. Here are examples of everything new in ECMAScript 2016, 2017, and 2018 - Rajaraodv, over on freecodecamp’s Medium blog goes through the new hotness in JS.
  2. All about JavaScript functions in 1 article - Rajesh Pillai over on the Codeburst talks about how JavaScript functions work. Good rundown
  3. Front-End Developer Handbook 2018 - I would be absolutely crazy not to include this link. This is written by Cody Lindley author of many great JS books including one of my favorites “Dom Enlightenment” (
  4. How I stopped using Bootstrap’s layout thanks to CSS Grid - Cédric Kui over on Theodo’s company tech blog talks about ditching Bootstrap for 89% browser compatible CSS Grid.
  5. How CSS works: Parsing & painting CSS in the critical rendering path - On LogRocket’s Medium blog, Benjamin Johnson explains how CSS works in the browser in some detail. If you don’t know what the CSS Object Model is, time to read up.
