Maybe you are right. If data for ui is obtained from server, it is better the ui layer is handled by nodejs

As a keyboard-only user, I thought "Skip to content" links would be useful. In fact, they're not. Here's how to fix them.

+Nicholas Zakas  Please do write/blog about your experience as a keyboard-only user. I bet that would be a very interesting blog article to read and lots of learning for accessibility.

There's been a lot of talk recently about diversity in tech conferences. I'd like to share how we tackled this when planning the Front End Summit at Yahoo in 2011. While I'm not sure it's easy to replicate with public conferences, I think there are some important lessons nonetheless.

I wasn't able to make it to YUIConf, but this is the talk I was going to give there.

If you would like to learn object-oriented programming in JavaScript from me, I'm now holding training classes for both individuals and companies. See attached for more information.

Any suggestions for OO Software Engineering in JavaScript? I.e. how to create reliable, maintainable, large applications in Javascript?

Always wondered why this happened... Just assumed the site was using some JS to mess with the touches on elements with a :hover or something crazy. Nice sleuthing!
