Bower is really great for teams because it basically self-documents your frontend dependencies. To that end, it’s really easy to update them as your project changes.

This has taken quite a while. There was a lot of discussion, but now reality has it. The picture element as propagated by the W3C has finally arrived. If you are into the matter, you might know that the WhatWG had tried to standardize an additional attribute to the image element, named srcset as opposed to picture. Whoever believed in what WhatWG said, as they stated they’d stand for the “living standard” while W3C would be more an administrator of a static snapshot, got it wrong. W3C is alive and kicking.


9. Oozled: Fast Growing Resource Collection for Designers and Any Webworker – noupe

Who’s to say that list posts are boring, noone would want to read them anymore? Only a few months ago, it was November 2013, design freelancer Dan Edwards wrote just that. He put up a list of resources over at Medium and titled his article simply “Resources”. He curated 80 offerings, he found to be inescapable for any designer out there. The list raised loads of attention and grew continuously. In fact the list got so much applause, that Dan decided to transform the simple list into a full-blown web app. The result, strangely entitled Oozled, has gone online merely two weeks ago and it’s growing even faster than its list predecessor…

10. Automating Web Performance Measurement – HTML5Rocks Updates

Web performance can have a huge impact on your entire user experience. If you’ve been looking at improving your own site’s perf lately, you’ve probably heard of PageSpeed Insights – a tool that analyzes pages and offers advice on how to make them faster based on best practices for mobile and desktop web performance.

PageSpeed’s scores are based on a number of factors, including how well your scripts are minimized, images optimized, content gzipped, tap targets being appropriately sized and landing page redirects avoided.

With 40% of people potentially abandoning pages that take more than 3 seconds to load, caring about how quickly your pages load on your users devices is increasingly becoming an essential part of our development workflow.
