I get a lot of questions about how we deal with Facebook bots and SEO for our single page web apps. My colleague wrote up a post explaining what we use, our Just-in-time Renderer, which delivers the exact same HTML as users would see but without JS.

This summer, I got the chance to work with +Sophia Westwood , an intern on the Khan Academy CS team.

You can read this post to find out all about how she got into CS and how she's getting more young whippersnappers like her into CS :-)

Wrote up a new post:

"Referencing DOM from JS: there must be a DRYer, safer way" http://blog.pamelafox.org/2013/06/referencing-dom-from-js-there-must-be.html

Thoughts welcome!

It feels like the form behaviour should be more widely implemented here - i.e. formElt.childName returning the child <input name="childName">. It's similar to the data-js solution, but using the name= field rather than a data attribute, plus already works with forms :)

I'll be speaking at BackBoneConf in Boston, July 31st-Aug 1st.

I imagine you all are bored of my Backbone talks, so for the Backbone conference, I'm not gonna give one! I'm going to talk instead about our approach to UI Components at Coursera - our alternative to the jQuery plugin style. Should be fun!

To date, the most popular post on my blog is "Converting a Google Spreadsheet to JSON, MYSQL, and XML". That post was using a Google spreadsheets gadget, which are now deprecated, so I've written up a new post on using Google Apps Script to convert to JSON (SQL and XML not yet supported, fork it!):
