Talks To Help You Become A Better Front-End Engineer In 2013

From Smashing Magazine:

Great strides have been made in how we approach workflow, use abstractions, appreciate code quality and tackle the measurement and betterment of performance. If you’ve been busy and haven’t had time to catch up on the latest developments in these areas, don’t worry.

With the holiday season upon us and a little more time on our hands, I thought it would be useful to share a carefully curated list of the most relevant front-end talks I’ve found helpful this year. You certainly don’t have to read through them all, but the advice shared in them will equip you with the knowledge needed to go into the new year as a better front-end engineer.

Github 404 – Star Wars Parallax

Move your mouse around the image on Github’s 404 page to see the parallax effect. This is not the web page you are looking for.

Then get the jQuery plugin.

Github gives their best practices for error pages and a list of all their error pages, like:

500: An exception occurred and we couldn’t recover. (Oops! Octocat is falling off a cliff.)

503: Unicorn! We are having a bad problem and the app server will not talk to us.
