  1. A video from NDC London 2017 named “Choosing a JavaScript Framework” by creator of Aurelia JS framework Rob Eisenberg just got my attention this week. There’s a neat comparison of 6 fronted JS frameworks/libraries: Angular JS, Angular, Aurelia, Polymer, React and Ember. Also his position is little biased, the features and issues and that he talks about are worth to at least consider when make decision what to use in the next project to come.
  2. A blog post and related video named “JavaScript Code Smells” from Elijah Manor nicely lays out several bad code patterns in JavaScript.
  3. Started to listen to new podcast about JS programming called “JavaScript Air”  and liked it. The very first episode is with creator of JS – Brendan Eich, which pretty much guarantees that the episode will be very enjoyable.
  4. TFS show episode with Chris Young about the lessons that can be learned from genius, tinkerers and billionaires.
  5. An article named “Why should we use pnpm?” talks about new Node.js package manager. It just another layer on top of standard npm, that uses only one copy of any package dependency that is used and creates a hard link to that package when used in node_modules. That way it save a disk space and improve the speed when the package is used in more than one place.
