It would seem I picked the wrong week to go on vacation (especially one where I had zero Internet access). This post covers two very eventful weeks worth of content. First, there were a ton of new product and project releases including Edge Reflow, Edge Code/Brackets, Edge Animate, Grunt, Yeoman, jQuery Mobile, CreateJS and much more. Of course, there were also a ton of tutorials and other outstanding articles over these weeks. I know it’s a lot of reading - but I guarantee you’ll learn a lot!

Best of JavaScript, HTML5 & CSS3 - Week of January 28, 2013

Posted on Feb 04, 2013

Despite the short week between posts (the last one was posted on a Tuesday), we have a very full list this week. Interestingly, the HTML5 canvas drawing was a popular topic this week as several posts covered very specific aspects of it and even two covering winding rules.

On another note, I was happy to be able to speak at HTML5tx in Austin this past week. This is a great event put on by Brandon Satrom along with some dedicated volunteers. Congrats to them on a jam-packed (information-wise) and sold-out event.
