OK, I needed a while to get the idea. After reading the redact source, it was clear. ;-)

Being in a distributed team can be tough. Here are a few tricks I learned over the years to make distributed meetings easier. Man on phone with 'shut up' on whiteboard behind him Photo Credit: Tim Caynes. Working as distributed teams is a red flag for a lot of companies.

Progressive Enhancement is not about JavaScript availability. http://christianheilmann.com/2015/02/18/progressive-enhancement-is-not-about-javascript-availability/ … - it is about planning your products and delivering.
I have been telling people for years that in order to create great web experiences and keep your sanity as a developer you should embrace Progressive Enhancement. escalators are great. when there is an issue, they become stairs and still work. A lot of people do the same, others question the ...

Very few games achieve jank-free 60fps, and most don't even achieve jank-free 30fps. And this is on consoles, with fixed hardware, where everything is 100% controlled. The vast majority of console games are 30fps and have janky slowdowns during busy firefights or complex parts of the game.

I think people have oversold this case for 60fps jank-free experience on mobile. Are there any user studies at all that show apps succeed or fail based on how buttery smooth their animations? I would guess most apps succeed or fail on other factors.

Most of the desktop Web succeeded even as native apps were still more fluid, and sites like Reddit, which don't use much if any fancier Web 2.0 features, tend to beat the more glamous Web forum software.

I think Flipboard needs to focus more on what actually makes their app valuable. If most of the value of the app is your animations, you should be worried.

Chromium now also supporting pointer events https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/blink-dev/ODWmcKNQl0I - this is excellent news!
Contact emails. rbyers@chromium.org, mustaq@chromium.org. Summary. The Pointer Events API is a low-level input API for mouse, touch and stylus introduced by IE. Pointer Events extends the MouseEvent model while offering a replacement for all uses of Mouse and Touch events.

Advancing JavaScript without breaking the web http://christianheilmann.com/2015/03/09/advancing-javascript-without-breaking-the-web
My musings on ES6 in browsers, lots of text, slides and screencast of the talk at MunichJS.
Current advancements in ECMAScript are a great opportunity, but also a challenge for the web. Whilst adding new, important features we're also running the danger of breaking backwards compatibility. These are my notes for a talk I gave at the MunichJS meetup last week.

Today, the W3C published Pointer Events as a final Recommendation standard. This journey began a little over 2 years ago when we first submitted our proposal to the W3C for a common event model across pointing input devices. Since then, the spec has evolved and improved with the collaboration of ...

Any chance this will be picked up more broadly? If memory serves Chrome and Safari are passing.
