This is a very neat JS animation library a coworker shared with me:

Check out the docs, complete with Demo Examples (this might be one of the best documentation pieces I've ever seen):

This might be my all time favorite article.  

Favorite Excerpts: 
"Bro, you don't work hard. I just worked a 4700-hour week digging a tunnel under Mordor with a screwdriver."

Would you drive across this bridge? No. If it somehow got built, everybody involved would be executed. Yet some version of this dynamic wrote every single program you have ever used [...]

*They read over the lines, and weep at their beauty, then the tears turn bitter as they remember the rest of the files and the inevitable collapse of all that is good and true in the world.
This file is Good Code. It has sensible and consistent names for functions and variables. It's concise. It doesn't do anything obviously stupid. It has never had to live in the wild, or answer to a sales team. It does exactly one, mundane, specific thing, and it does it well. It was written by a single person, and never touched by another. It reads like poetry written by someone over thirty.
Every programmer starts out writing some perfect little snowflake like this. Then they're told on Friday they need to have six hundred snowflakes written by Tuesday[...] *

“Few persons can be made to believe that it is not quite an easy thing to invent a method of secret writing which shall baffle investigation. Yet it may be roundly asserted that human ingenuity cannot concoct a cipher which human ingenuity cannot resolve...”
Edgar Allan Poe

Love the quote.

I'm working with these guys at Walmart Labs on the m.samsclub.com redesign.  

I have to say, I'm really enjoying the way they think.

Really interesting read from one of my favorite websites dating back to the start of my career (also mentioning an architect who trained me at The Weather Channel): 

http://www.quirksmode.org/blog/archives/2015/01/the_problem_wit.html

Favorite Excerpts: 

"I’d say Angular is mostly being used by people from a Java background because its coding style is aimed at them. Unfortunately they aren’t trained to recognise Angular’s performance problems.

I have doubts about Angular 1.x’s suitability for modern web development. If one is uncharitably inclined, one could describe it as a front-end framework by non-front-enders for non-front-enders."

and 

"Enterprise IT managers also like the fact that Angular closely mirrors the preferences of their back-end developers. I had an illuminating Twitter conversation with Joe Pearson of weather.com, who told me that they had recently switched to Angular, mostly for the sake of their Java developers. Angular used a type of code structuring that was well-suited to them, though not to their front-enders. From my clients I also got the impression that their Java developers decided to use Angular."
