“At the 2013 Game Developers’ Conference, Alon and I from Mozilla and Josh Adams from Epic Games presented a talk called “Fast and Awesome HTML5 Games”. We surprised people by showing off Unreal Engine 3 running in Firefox — compiled from C++ source with Emscripten, running smoothly and efficiently. Today, Epic is making the Epic Citadel demo available, so that you can try it out for yourself…”

“Bootstrap is a ‘sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework for faster and easier web development’. What that really means is it gives you all the building blocks to build beautiful and functional websites without falling into the ‘advanced’ section of web designers. That allowed me as an ‘average’ web developer build beautiful, responsive websites. When I first started looking at building websites over 10 years ago I would have loved a framework like Bootstrap.
For anyone that doesn’t know a ‘responsive website’ is one that resizes itself depending what size screen you are viewing it on. In a world of mobile, tablet and desktop that is very important. Bootstrap helps put all this in place for you leaving you time to focus on site content and features…”
“The heated competition between web browsers means that most users are now accessing the Internet from devices that support a range of cutting-edge W3C standards in a truly interoperable manner. This means that we can finally leverage powerful and flexible CSS functions to produce cleaner, more maintainable frontend code. Let’s have a look at some of the more exciting choices you may not even be aware of…”
“There are countless tutorials on Node.js, but most are not good enough resources for learning Node.js thoroughly, and it is very frustrating to discern which tutorials, if any, are best for learning Node.js properly. Most of them lack the requisite depth and structure you need to learn Node.js completely.
I read a good bit of Node.js tutorials when I learned Node.js about a year ago. I also wasted a good bit of time on some of the tutorials. Some of them were disappointing (I didn’t learn anything substantive) and frustratingly unedifying. I will neither name the unhelpful tutorials nor list the links here, but suffice to say, don’t waste your time following lots of Node.js online tutorials to learn Node.js from the ground up.
I am confident there are some excellent Node.js tutorials, but you have to weed through many mediocre tutorials to find the great ones. It is an inefficient way to learn Node.js. I did it and I am hopeful this guide will help you, so that you wouldn’t waste as much time as I did…”
