This is a great read on the UX of modern web applications. As ever it boils down to "Don't make me wait", but they're not all things you'd necessarily think of
This is a writeup based on a presentation I gave at BrazilJS in August 2014. It builds on some of the ideas I've been blogging about recently related mostly to UX and performance. I want to introduce 7 actionable principles for websites that want to make use of JavaScript to control their UI.

*Not that it matters, Sepp Blatter has already had the trophy engraved
Colombia's James Rodriguez scores with a stunning volley from outside the box against Uruguay in the last 16 of the 2014 World Cup at the Maracana.

Great little pub. Successfully marries heart of the community with warm and welcoming. Food is good without being fancy; wide selection of beers (and whiskeys) and a great atmosphere
