TEN THINGS TRENDING

24 Ways

1. • JavaScript Modules the ES6 Way ◆ 24 ways

“JavaScript admittedly has plenty of flaws, but one of the largest and most prominent is the lack of a module system: a way to split up your application into a series of smaller files that can depend on each other to function correctly.”

24 Ways is doing their Advent Calendar thing.


GitHub

2. • WOFF 2.0 – Learn more about the next generation Web Font Format and convert TTF to WOFF2 over command line without setup.

"Google Chrome Developers says:

The new WOFF 2.0 Web Font compression format offers a 30% average gain over WOFF 1.0 (up to 50%+ in some cases). WOFF 2.0 is available since Chrome 36 and Opera 23."

WOFF is an exciting, relatively new web font compression format.


Smashing Magazine

3. • Don’t Get Lost In Translation: How To Conduct Website Localization – Smashing Magazine

“A common mistake with localized websites is considering the translated content to be just another version of the pages in the original language. Translation isn’t everything. Of course, for the user it’s all about the content: Is the content relevant and understandable and in line with the user’s cultural context?”


Html5 rocks

4. • Introduction to Service Worker: How to use Service Worker – HTML5 Rocks

"A service worker is a script that is run by your browser in the background, separate from a web page, opening the door to features which don’t need a web page or user interaction. In the future this will include push messages, background sync, and geofencing, but the first feature it will launch with is the ability to intercept and handle network requests, including programmatically managing a cache of responses.

The reason this is such an exciting API is that it allows you to support offline experiences, giving developers complete control over what exactly that experience is."

8. • Salvador, Brazil to Host Its First WordCamp

"The very first WordCamp Salvador is set to take place in Brazil this weekend on December 6th, bringing together approximately 160 attendees who are excited about connecting through WordPress. The more developed south and southeast regions of Brazil have had WordCamps in the past, but WordCamp Salvador will be the first in the northeast.

Co-organizer Leo Baiano is the founder of Salvador’s first WordPress meetup group and has been instrumental in growing the local community over the past year. He discovered WordPress nine years ago, which led him to get involved in fostering his local community."

If you plan on going, take some extra time. This is wonderful place in Brazil.
