Dan Abramov on The Elements of UI Engineering

Somewhat recently, Dan Abramov wrote this interesting piece on his approach to learning about UI engineering. The article's key takeaway is this: "My biggest learning breakthroughs weren’t about a particular technology. [ ... ] It’s this combination of understanding the problems, experimenting with the solutions, and applying different strategies that led to the most rewarding learning experiences in my life."

Hence, it's not only expedient to know about the classic relatively low-level GoF design patterns or Martin Fowler's Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture but about design patterns for ...

References to Design Pattern Libraries

When designing and developing software it's always useful to have a reference to common software design patterns handy. Apart from cloud design pattern libraries there are collections of more low-level or more general design patterns, too. These include the classic GoF design patterns and Martin Fowler's Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. Read more

State of JavaScript Survey: 2018 Edition – Criticism from an Angular Perspective

Recently, the results of the 2018 edition of the State of JavaScript survey have been published. As usual, the report comes with handy categories such as front-end, data layer, testing or mobile.
