    Earlier this year, I had the chance to speak at Fluent in San Francisco, and at State of the Browser in London. At both events, I talked about various new CSS features that have become available in mobile browsers and allow you to create compelling responsive designs. The topics I covered in these talks included: device adaptation aka @viewport resolution media queries object-fit & object-position viewport-percentage lengths In the introduction to both presentations, I also went for a short trip down memory lane, and talked about the fascinating work of Karl Gerstner, a Swiss graphic…

  • Opera goes to BlinkOn 3

    Bruce Lawson
    15 Dec 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Recently, the Opera Web Technology team attended BlinkOn 3, the twice-yearly conference for Blink contributors. (Videos are available on YouTube.) As you may know, Opera is a prolific committer to Blink, and has the only non-Google API owner and Chromium Security Group members. Here are a few notes and observations from our team. Mobile first? A year ago, a “mobile first” policy was formed. Now that has been replaced by a policy about enabling web developers to do whatever they want. Part of that is to keep landing new APIs that give more and more access to hardware/OS features and to…

  • In search of the perfect JavaScript framework

    Krasimir Tsonev
    27 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Nowadays, in front-end development, we have many frameworks and libraries. Some of them are good, some of them are not. Often we only like a particular concept, module or maybe a certain syntax. The truth is that there is no universal instrument. This article is about the future framework — the framework that does not exist yet. I’ve summarized the pros and cons of some of the available JavaScript frameworks and I dare to dream about the perfect solution. Abstraction is dangerous We all like simple tools. Complexity kills. It makes our work difficult and gives us much steeper learning…

I spent it at home, starting with an eight mile run at an even pace through Golden Gate Park to Ocean Beach and back with a couple of friends, then cooking and sharing brunch with them and a few more. It was a good way to spend the minimal daylight hours we had: doing positive things, sharing genuinely with positive people who themselves shared genuinely. Of all the choices we make day to day, I think these may be the most important we have to make: What we choose to do with our time Who we choose…
