Get Started with Debugging JavaScript in Chrome DevTools

Kayce Basques wrote an excellent interactive tutorial that explores how to debug JavaScript with DevTools. Kayce looks into a number of techniques and options that I was completely unaware of and, as he notes in the beginning of the tutorial, if you’re still using console.log to find bugs in your code (like me) then this article is written just for you (also me).

They are all different and do interesting and valuable things for our businesses. Integrating them means integrating their third-party JavaScript into your site.

Scott Jehl, explaining one of the performance improvements he made to the Filament Group site:

With Server Push, we can respond to requests for a particular file by immediately sending additional files we know that file depends upon.

WebSlides

Looks like a nicely done little system, by José Luis Antúnez for creating presentation slides.

WebSlides makes HTML presentations easy. Just the essentials and using lovely CSS.

An alternative to reveal.js. I like how it utilizes other open source projects.
