Front end + design = prototype magic. Advantages of blurring responsibilities

Damian Dulisz

April 12, 2016 | front-end design prototype prototyping Web Development

The topic of whether designers should or should not learn to code isn’t actually anything new. The pursuit of creating the web of tomorrow has led to the blurring of lines between front-end and back-end development where the front-end developer has started to become too general. Ever since the popularisation of the AngularJS framework, JavaScript’s browser-side responsibility has grown furiously. Right now we have so many different and powerful frameworks that it’s hard to pick which one to learn next; we have React, Blaze (for Meteor), Ember.js, Aurelia, and Angular 2.0 waiting just around the corner, just to name a few. And don't forget Vue.js, which is actually my personal pick of the year.

Well, in some ways it is, but this is more a side-effect of all the excitement in the community! This year's Front-trends conference is proof of how awesome front-end development can be and further proof of how much it has changed in recent years.

When you're an experienced front-end developer, it takes just one look and few mouse clicks to judge whether or not the site in your browser is correctly implemented. By working on these problems day after day, you'll write dozens of lines of HTML/CSS, checking the outcome each time.

Robust dashboard application with Faye

There’s a dashboard in one of our applications that shows data from various external services. The more data we were adding to this dashboard, the worse its performance and user experience was getting until the site eventually became unusable. It got to the point where its user had to wait 10 seconds or even more for the content to show up. Unfortunately, caching didn’t help much.

Here’s the story of what we did to reduce the load time.

January 3, 2012 | javascript ruby ruby on rails backbone.js front-end

Currently at Monterail we're building a frontend-heavy app. With a lot of cool stuff. Like preloading data for daily views so that you won't have to wait for every surrounding day to load. Many, many interactive elements that should be really interactive - not in an oldschool, ajax spinner way. And a lot of other stuff we shouldn't talk about yet.
