This is a video from my talk at WordCamp US.
Let’s take a peek at what front-end development has become these days. Starting from what the role is, where we sit, and the expectations of us. Then we’ll get into the problems we face, how to approach them, and the tools we have at our disposal. We’ll look at how Gutenberg might fit into our lives as front-end developers.
It’s my first time giving this talk, and I will be giving it again hopefully many more times, evolving it as time goes to include a deeper understanding of the front-end development landscape. Part of the research for this is what turned into The Great Divide essay.
I spoke with loads of front-end developers for this:
To get a glimpse into how different front-end developers think, we spend the end of the talk looking at Dribbble designs and seeing how a variety of different developers react to them.
Dang it .. it is not a dash in a compound. It is a hyphen. Former faculty member here in journalism/PR. Hyphens join…dashes separate. I have lived so long that I mastered PR and marketing and then moved to mastering new skills. Went online and began as a web master. All of these years it has driven me batty that a dash is a hyphen to techies. First time I finally said it. Sorry!!!
