The topical idea of “how to think like a front-end developer” began for me as a series of podcast interviews on ShopTalk Show. That was in preparation for a talk I was preparing (and gave) of the same name. That talk evolved into my essay The Great Divide, which evolved into the essay The Widening Responsibility for Front-End Developers.

But also, this entire site is loosely themed “how to think like a front-end developer”. My goal for this site is helping us all do that better.

This post is a collection of articles that hone in on that idea. Some are very specific technical posts that I think embody front-end development. Some are more lofty philosophical musings. Some are links to other people’s articles.
