Front-end development in 2013
So you survived the apocalypse! What next?
Let’s see what’s latest, what’s a must and how to stay sharp in your front-end development skills. ‘Web page’ oriented front-end development is way past us and front-end development for ‘Web Applications’ requires a much better baseline, and a cutting edge stack.
So, let there be light!
Inspired by @rmurphey’s A baseline for Front-end Devs and @addyosmani/@paulirish’s Yeoman.io, we’re going to focus on latest ‘must have’ skills and cutting edge stack. This includes but not limited to -
- Scalable JS Application Architecture (which, for us mere mortals, is the biggest pain!) - Modularity, YUI
- Advanced Browser Dev Tools
- Advanced Command Line (dotfiles, aliases, sexy bash shell, Vim, server side editing, etc.) (Windows people don’t disappoint! Chocolatey, Console2, etc.)
- Bower/Grunt/Yeoman (YYYEEEAAAHHHHHH!)
