Deploying ES2015+ Code in Production Today

Philip Walton suggests making two copies of your production JavaScript. Easy enough to do with a Babel-based build process. He put together a demo project for it all and you’re looking at 50% file size savings. I would think there would be other speed improvements as well, by using modern JavaScript methods directly.

Compilers are the New Frameworks

Tom Dale: Increasingly, the bytes that get shipped to browsers will bear less and less resemblance to the source code that web developers write. Indeed. I suspected the same: Because performance matters so much and there is so much opportunity to get clever with performance, we’ll see innovation in getting our code bases to production. Tools like webpack (tree shaking, code splitting) are already doing a lot here, but there is plenty of room to let automated tools work magic on how our code ultimately gets shipped to browsers. Tom also says: This is a loss in some ways (who else got their web development start with View Source?) but is a huge win for users, particularly in emerging markets. It seems to me today’s world of GitHub, StackOverflow, and the proliferation of learning resources more than make up for learning via our own website spelunking, not to mention how insightful today’s DevTools are, even if what they are looking at isn’t hand-authored.

6 Months of Working Remotely Taught Me a Thing or Ten

Peter Anglea writes up his key takeaways after six months on the job with a new front-end position. His points ring true to me as a remote worker and the funny thing is that each one of the suggestions is actually applicable to anyone in almost any front-end job, whether it happens to be in-house or remote. The full post is worth reading, though the list breaks down to: Be as available as possible Communicate clearly Go out of your way to be human Offer praise and positive sentiments early and often Create a comfortable space conducive to productivity Put your pants on Go outside Turn on your camera Work on more than one project at a time Take advantage of the perks… and be responsible One item I would add to the list is to manage up in day-to-day conversations. In other words, give frequent and regular updates with examples of progress so that your client/boss/whomever has no doubt that you are being productive from afar. I suppose that goes along with “communicate clearly” but takes it one step further.
