I think this is the coolest robot I've ever seen! Awesome!

Very interesting post as I've just spent a day tinkering with a few AngularJS libraries to see what is currently the best Angular-centric UI framework choice for me for mobile app development using Cordova/PhoneGap, that could also perhaps be suitable for responsive web sites.

Everything I tried seemed to be a little rough with unfinished pieces, but at the end of the day, Angular Material Design (http://material.angularjs.org) won out for mobile development by a long shot over Mobile Angular UI (http://mobileangularui.com) and UI Bootstrap (http://angular-ui.github.io/bootstrap.) That being said, if a client's main site is already Bootstrap-based then one of the other two would be more suitable.

I'm looking forward to transitioning away from jQuery Mobile for my next mobile project.

I've been tinkering with two new dark IDE themes for WebStorm,, and also for Eclipse-based IDEs, (Aptana Studio, etc.,) and would appreciate any constructive feedback. Thanks! The rationale behind these themes is covered in the first couple of paragraphs here: https://github.com/NeilCresswell/themes

Very interesting reading for folks interested in exploring modern JavaScript best practices and the future of AngularJS 2.0.
For those grieving the impending death of $scopes and controllers in angular 2.0

Thought I'd reshare. I've worked out of the YES! office in the past, and you'd be hard put to find a nicer bunch of people.

Google Chrome is now available in a stable 64 bit flavor for Windows users. Improvements over the 32 bit version most of us still have include average speed gains around 25%, (per the Chromium Blog,) better security and better stability. You can download the 64 bit version here: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/?platform=win64

Exciting stuff. One phone that can run Windows or Android. Maybe in the near future a dual boot phone? I'm drooling already!
