Been scratching your head over AMP and PWA's? Which one to use, how (and if) they work together, and so on?

"Progressive Web AMPs" is a must read: bit.ly/2h0WMwr - excellent writeup by +Paul Bakaus, explaining all of the above and more.

✏️ For the bookmarks: web dev reading list covering what's new and happening within the industry. Happy Friday! ;)
https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2016/12/web-development-reading-list-163/
Only one week left until Christmas, and people already start freaking out again. No gifts purchased yet, work isn’t finished either, and suddenly some budget has to be spent until the end of the year. All of this puts us under pressure. To avoid the stress, I’ve seen a lot of people take a vacation from now until the end of the year — probably a good idea. And while it’s nice to see so many web advent calendars, I feel like I’ve never written a ...

A fun and educational look at how fiber optic cables are made and laid... to enable all the great things we come to expect and depend on in our daily lives. Yay technology!

Seen this? It's cool! You'll draw 6 doodles and a neural network guesses as you draw #ai #singularity #aiexperiments https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/shared/3VtTqxXObrvR
Can a neural network learn to recognize doodles? See how well it does with your drawings and help teach it, just by playing.

✎ Responsive Adventures: Dirty Tricks From The Dark Corners of Front-End. Let’s play a little game, shall we? ;-)

https://speakerdeck.com/smashingmag/responsive-adventures-dirty-tricks-from-the-dark-corners-of-front-end
Do you love CSS quantity selectors, too? Is your pattern library still up-to-date today, and how would you go around building one? Do you adjust web font styles based on the battery status? How do you optimize start render for important images and fonts? Have you ever tried to work around complex spongy tables, perfect responsive grids without orphans, and responsive, fluid type with CSS locks? Well, bring it on! In this talk, Vitaly Friedman ...

11 years ago my brother (now 34) was in an accident and broke his neck. He is now a vent-dependent quadriplegic (think Christopher Reeves).

Over Thanksgiving I had the chance to let him use my new #Daydream, Google's VR device. I showed him some 360° pictures and Cardboard Camera videos that I took during a recent trip to Italy. He was able to "experience" the Last Supper, Piazza del Dumo, Cinque Terre, and a few other places. He was pretty amazed.

Then I had him play PolyRunner VR. When I played it, I thought that it was a fun game and wasted a few minutes playing it. His response was much different:

"This is awesome!"
"This is the best Thanksgiving ever!"

and finally:

"I haven't been able to play a real video game in eleven years!"

Technology helps to make his life manageable. I'm really glad to work for company that makes products like Daydream that can make all of our lives better. Even if it is as simple as letting someone play a video game. I'm looking forward to see what else the Daydream team can do to further this kind of experience for those with disabilities.
