I'm spreading this event as wide as possible because I think attendance will really grow if more people are aware of this. It's a great way to get to know and grow the Durban developer community.

Super useful, have used it before!

A simple logging implementation based on editing the JS console.* messaging methods.

After reading David Walsh's article on forcing stack traces in JavaScript I thought I would post a script of my own that's based on a very similar principle.

Apparently also applies to Firefox, but Chrome is hardened a bit more.

Randomness is really one of the most interesting things.

After months of hard work, a month of wrong direction, and a month of implementing tax handling, JS Bin pro initial pro offering is live.

£6 a month (about $8) or yearly subscriptions currently offer 2 months free.

This is my first run at making JS Bin self sustainable. I love that it's used to help others, to debug, to teach and I need all your support to keep it open source and free for education.

Any questions or feedback: please do get in touch and ask! I appreciate anyone reposting this or posting their own experience of JS Bin.

Cheers!

This looks promising!

A local +AngularJS meetup. Have already signed up.

I am keen to help get our local community started and see what all the local devs are doing with angular as I use it on a daily basis.

If you are in the area, sign up and hopefully see you there with +Ryan Nel

Has definitely helped in the past, especially when deadlines are tight and blood pressure rises.
 
Getting my blog off the ground with a short post.
No one will argue the business benefits of testing. Reliablity can mean the difference between a customer trusting you with his credit card details or moving to the competitor just one click away. But how do you, as a develop...

This is awesome!! To be able to generate documentation for all your SASS variables, functions, mixins etc! Great for teams and collaboration work.

'JSDoc' but for your SASS files

WOW!! This is beautiful!!

The new emulation in Chrome Dev Tools is amazing! It is available in Canary.

I really love the ability to change any and all of the settings from the top panel with the ability to change the screen to a given media query.

Also, a welcome to the ability to enable network throttling.

Nicely done +Google Chrome Developers 

+1 on the awesome work!
